Marco Rubio

Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are dreaming if they believe they have a chance at winning the GOP nomination in a fair fight.

Both candidates would have to win their home states and then sweep every swing state after March 15th. Most of those states are winner-take-all contests.

While both campaigns speak of frontrunner Donald Trump’s “ceiling” of support and speculate that it’s at 35%, they fail to mention the contender’s floor, which is also 35% at the least.

Trump supporters are unwavering and hardcore in their defense of their candidate.

They are not going anywhere regardless of the tag team efforts of attack by Cruz and Rubio.

With Marco Rubio about to be sunk by gay rumors that have merit, that will leave Canada’s golden boy, Ted Cruz, standing toe-to-toe with Donald Trump and as experience has proven, Cruz doesn’t stand a chance in attacking him alone, with our without lies.

The coming sweep for Trump during Super Tuesday will leave the GOP with only one option to save their party from a Trump takeover . . . an unfair fight.

It will take parliamentary tricks that have never been seen before for the GOP elites to block Trump, but the discussions and actions are already in play.

Over the weekend, Trump confidante Roger Stone reported a deal in which $75 million was pledge for Mitt Romney as the newest competitor to Trump . . . with another $25 million pledged to attack ads.

The move makes no sense as Mitt Romney is literally too late to play as he has missed ballot access requirements in many of the states to run as a GOP nominee.

That means he would have to run as a third party or independent candidate.

A GOP opposition research firm in Florida was paid to study ballot access requirements for an independent run.

If the GOP elites are so desperate to block Trump, they only way they could do it is by destroying their own party and throwing in an independent candidate who would then compete against Hillary and Trump . . . guaranteeing a win for Hillary in a three-way race, just as Perot guaranteed the election for her husband in 1992.

Marco Rubio showed he has a sense of humor when a supporter at his rally shouted, “Waterboard Hillary.”

Marco laughed but then said he didn’t hear what was said.

A new poll from ABC News and The Washington Post has Sen. Marco Rubio jumping into third place with 10% of the vote–behind Ben Carson’s 22% and Donald Trump’s 33%.

But, despite his numbers being substantially lower than the two political outsiders holding the top two spots, his sudden rise could show that the rest of the Republican Party is starting to coalesce behind one “establishment” pick: Rubio.

While Trump has been the distant frontrunner for months, he’s continued to hit a polling ceiling in the low-30s.

While that’s enough to vault him past the gigantic Republican field during the early stages of the primary season, where most contenders are polling in the single-digits, it nevertheless shows that about two-thirds of the Republican Party are still not in his corner–despite months of media attention and virtually universal name recognition.

Were Rubio to pick up support from other establishment candidates as they drop out of the race, he would be in a prime position to challenge Trump in a showdown of the Republican grassroots–who support Trump’s tough talk and resilience–versus the Republican establishment–who want to see a candidate with political experience and a proven ability to reach independent voters.

However, as this political season has shown, virtually anything can happen in a presidential race. Six months ago, no one predicted Trump would even enter the race, let alone lead it.

Were something damaging to come out about Trump or Carson, for example, their large bases support could quickly erode–and send many of their supporters to other candidates.

While the race continues to change day by day, it’s clear that, eventually, one establishment pick will go head-to-head with Trump–and, despite Trump’s big lead right now, he’ll need to continue to grow his base of support in order to beat the establishment’s eventual compromise pick.
