Ted Cruz in still hot on the trail be beat Donald Trump in the end, at the Republican convention on July 18th through the 21st. Cruz says that a win by his opponent in Indiana would not in any way put down his assertion.
Cruz is seeking to defeat Trump on the second or third ballot at the convention. He says that Trump will not meet the require minimum of 1,237 delegates majority needed for a win on the first ballot.
But that opinion by Cruz in one-sided. Trumps in gaining strength with each passing day, and it is getting harder to to find delegates who are willing to switch to Cruz on the second ballot at the convention.
If the voting goes the second or higher ballot because no one qualified for the first ballot, delegates no longer must vote for the candidates for which they were pledged to in the first run. They can vote for anyone proposed as a candidate, and these include totally new people at the convention! Wild game!
The standings of the remain three left in the contest as of April 1st are for delegates on first ballot are Trump 956, Cruz 546, and Kasich 153.
