Trump and Cruz Win, Call for Rubio to Drop Out

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz split victories on Saturday, with Trump taking Kentucky and Louisiana while Cruz picked up Kansas and Maine. But the two candidates were unusually united in at least one message following the results: Florida Senator Marco Rubio needed to pack his bags and head home.

“Marco Rubio had a very, very bad night and personally I’d call for him to drop out of the race,” Trump said. “I think it’s probably time.”

Cruz went a step further, calling for John Kasich to follow Rubio out the door. “As long as the field remains divided, it gives Donald an advantage,” Cruz said.

Rubio had a terrible night, finishing third in all of the contests except Maine, where he actually managed to come in fourth behind Kasich. Putting aside the battle between Trump and Cruz, Saturday proved once again that Republican voters are in no mood for an establishment candidate. While Rubio still maintains that he will win Florida on March 15, it’s unclear whether there is any foundation for that optimism. Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight gives Trump an 88% chance of winning Rubio’s home state, a victory that would spell the certain end for the senator’s campaign.

On Sunday, in an interview with Face the Nation on CBS, Cruz made it clear that he has Trump in his sights. He said that media outlets were holding back much of their anti-Trump ammunition until after he won the nomination.

“I think an awful lot of reporters — I can’t tell you how many media outlets I hear, you know, have this great exposé on Donald, on different aspects of his business dealings or his past, but they said, ‘You know what? We’re going to hold it to June or July,'” Cruz said. “And all of the attacks on Donald that the media is not talking about now, you’d better believe come September, October, November — if he were the nominee — every day on the nightly news would be taking Donald apart.”

Cruz’s prediction is likely to come true, but he misses the fact that the same media will be every bit as vicious if he is the nominee. His brand of evangelical conservatism is loathed by the liberal elite, and he has almost as little support from the Republican establishment as Trump. And unlike Trump, who has been relentlessly hammered by the press since last summer, Cruz has flown relatively far under the radar. Even Dr. Ben Carson had to weather a much more blistering onslaught from the media.

Either way, we should have a very good idea about the future of this race by the middle of the month. The smart money is still on Trump, but Cruz, clearly, is not going down without a fight.

    • Especially, Trump !

    • Go Cruz — Trump is a Dem in wolf’s clothing, and would govern much like Obama if elected.

      Cruz is the only hope we have of a Reagan-like conservative with the resolve to stand against the establishment as he has proven.

      Trump will just try to buy them off, as he has with the Clintons, Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, et al.

      • That would seem to be congruent with what Pamela Geller and Ben Carson say. I trust them.

      • Texans know Ted Cuz best and Cruz received over a million votes in Texas on Super Tuesday. Those million votes will come in handy in the General Election. Cruz keeps his campaign promises.

      • Well slinkiecat, you missed that all the way around. America does not need a Fundamentalist in the WH. America needs someone who will protect all of us–including us Evangelicals. Cruz will end our religious liberty with his strident dogmatism under the guise of being true to the constitution. I’m all for constitutional adherence but not Cruz’s brand. We will get protection in the charisma, leadership, competence, and warmth of Donald Trump.

      • YOU DON’T KNOW HIM SO GET OVER YOUR SELF THANK YOU VERY MUCH BYE BYE NOW

    • I would like Cruz to go instead of Rubio. Rubio is born on USA soil and therefore has no other country to pledge his loyalty to. Cruz is a Canadian-Cuban. If you morons mess him here he will go to Canada to run for Prime Minister job. But I doubt if Canada will accept his stupidity he plays in Congress here. Then he will flee to Cuba where he will be with his uncle Castro. You TPs and Repubs are better keep Rubio than Cruz is a foreigner taking advantage of Texans who love his Canadian accent. You morons will under either queen or Castro.

    • GO TRUMP AND NOT CRUZ AND YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT THE ANTI ESTABLISHMENT ALSO

  2. Once again, another article that talks about liberal bias in the news and their reporters.

    The MEDIA uses bias by omission to black out news that they do not want people to hear and to sensationalize the good points of the news they do want you to hear.

    Together, we can fight the corrupt practice of bias by omission.

  3. Richard Tillman

    Rubio should stay in so that they can keep the chaos on display, and further show how ridiculous they are.

  4. Do the American citizen, really want another ” Self made Emperor,” on their hands by electing Ted Cruz ?
    This ” Manure Spreader,” is just another crooked Politian, feathering his own nest, by spreading unproven statements about his fellows & the only two non-political runners we’ve seen in the last 50+ years, and like the Democrat hag, is getting away with his crimes!
    Face the facts, none of these people are innocent, they all have faults, but for once we have the chance to elect an Outsider to office, And Trump could be such a one!
    JUST REMEMBER; A VOTE for T. Cruz, is a vote for Hillary R. Clinton

    • WRONG!!!

    • Trump can convince to vote for him by simply divulging his taxes and the interview on immigration for all to see and hear.

      • As a retired CPA wanting tax returns is a stupid statement. If you really want his net worth ask for his financial statements on his business ventures. Tax returns are NOTHING and anyone who does taxes knows this. Romney just put a red herring up for the idiots!

        • BO was a community organizer with no fight to speak of in the interest of his constituents. No, I don’t believe ANYTHING the politicians say, or what a con artist says. But the establishment is gunning for Cruz as much as they are gunning for Trump perhaps even more so. Cruz is hated by Trump, Democrats (some like Trump, wonder why?), GOP establishment AND the media.The fact that he has won as many delegates as he has, against all those odds, is indicative that those who support him, do it based on their trust of him as a proven conservative rather than being caught up in an Obama/useless Congress/establishment, rage/hysteria/frenzy that allows them to make an irrational decision.

        • Remember the “Occupy Wall Street” group of liberal activists that camped out in parks all over the country living like refugees and destroying the parks trying to shame others because they actually worked and supported themselves. Contrary to popular belief even pigs are more sanitary that these Occupy protestors. Pigs defecate in a specific spot within their pens and not all over the place like these disgusting animals.

      • His taxes are his business,Has nothing to do with being Pres. AND Barrustio do you want everyone to know what you tell your Wife in confidence?

        • I’m with you on that. His taxes have nothing to do with his running for president. This tax expose is the invention of the liberals and not a requirement to run for office. I’m waiting for this issue to come back and bite some liberal in the a$$ because there are very few liberal politicians. Look at the fortunes of the Clintons and the Hollyweed crowd that support them. They all have accountants that do whatever they can including money laundering experts to hide their money.

        • I have no interest in what he tells his wife in confidence…but if he has cheated the taxpayers…it is my business.

          • And if he has lied about his charitable donations, his tax returns would show that.

            The vile varmint is dodging and weaving. He is stalling on the tax returns until he gets enough delegates to secure the nomination before the convention.

            He is a red-faced, lying, degenerate and licentious swine!

          • Well…I wouldn’t call him all that…but his face is more on the orange side than… “red-faced”

      • Only if those who care about his finances and refuse to consider all his horrible statements about the women in his life, using terms I can’t bring myself to repeat. He uses terrible vulgar language in public, has fits of anger much like Hillary’s in dealing with people who are paid to serve him, and is so self-absorbed and narcissistic that he makes Obama seem almost normal.

        • Thank you for reminding me…that will be another requirement…that he publicly apologizes to all those people he so viciously disparaged.

    • That Trump Kool-Aid must be super delicious for you to guzzle it down so fast that it’s turned your brain to mush. …..” REMEMBER; A VOTE for T. Cruz, is a vote for Hillary R. Clinton”., REALLY ???..” Self made Emperor, sounds like a perfect description of ‘The” Donald.

    • Michael Dennewitz

      Do you know of atleast ONE politician that ISN’T crooked? ROFLMAO

    • Cruz is an outsider dumbass! Vote Cruz

      • He’s an “Insider” dumbass! He can’t get along with his fellow Senators. It’s his way or no way! He’s a Liar (also Lawyer) and a Political Cheater. He is also not a “Natural Born: Citizen and an opportunist! Do you want More…..?

      • CRUZ is NOT An OUTSIDER – DUMBASS, Crus has been a TEXAS Senator For many years, DUMBASS!!
        In the case everyone else is Speaking about is; MR.TRUMP, WhomHAS NEVER hela a GOVERNMENT POST/JOB In his LIFE.
        DUMBASS!!

    • On the other hand, the crooked businessman Trump, a pretender to the conservative movement, would lose to Hillary, while many polls show that the pure conservative, who has proven himself for decades as a Reaganesque leader, easily wins in a head-to-head fight against either Trump or Hillary.

      As several polls show, a Trump nomination equals a Hillary presidency. Think about your country first.

    • you are so wrong sir or she. Cruz is sincere. Look up the word as it is a Latin word ( Italian origin). Cruze is a stature unflawed. You just do not like his ideology.

      But I am afraid after LBJ, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton we have expanded welfarism and destroyed the black American family ( read Dr. Thomas Sowell – a black American from NYC and Harvard graduate before affirmative action and learn both about the democratic policies and about true economic growth that floats all boats)

      • What a shame it is that you take the musings of one author too influence your entire life . Now if you hade a gram of common since in that space between your ears, you might have at lease had the decency to inquire as to my race!
        While it’s true, most of My People grew up with welfare and handouts, not all of us stayed in the system after we moved out on our own.
        That said, People like Ted Cruz or Rubio, fail to mention how they have sustained themselves office after all of these years?
        Each one accepted Monies from Lobbyist & Special interest & Both have Willingly believed the LIE that taking these monies was NORMAL in Political office!
        The problem is, IT’S all a BRIBE or PAYLOLLA , Met to be a way of buying a Senator or Governor’s support on an issue.
        BOTTOM LINE; This [BRIBE] is the one main reason why the Political Runners Hate Mr. Trump,
        so much, Unlike themselves, there are no strings attached to Mr. Trump., No way of Controlling his actions, under the table, and as such, they fear him !

  5. The clown bus empties, now only a clown motorcycle…

  6. TRUMP WILL WIN FLORIDA AND OHIO GAME OVER RUBIO, AND CRUZ

    • The more the liberals attack him, the stronger he becomes. What the liberals do not get is that the public is fed up with their radical liberal bullying. When they use liberal name-calling on Trump, it only reinforces the image of Trump as the rebel leader who is willing to defy the evil liberal empire. They are making him into a modern Elliot Ness who is set to take down the liberal mafia.

      I actually think Cruz could benefit a lot more by getting attacked by liberals.

    • Unfortunately this isn’t a game! It’s perhaps the most important presidential election in American history! And trumps in the middle slinging his bullshit! Start using your brain and not your emotion! trump is NOT who he says he is! He’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing! He even says; he’ll CHANGE when he get to the W.H. Not long ago he was a liberal democrat, who was for amnesty, (maybe not for muslims but, he was and, still is for amnesty,) and, he was against the 2nd Amendment! If you did a little homework, you would realize he’s very friendly with the clintons, he’s donated $ to them, h.reid and, n.pelosi! Lobbyist are what make Congress corrupt! trump is a lobbyist! He knows he cannot do half the things he says! He’s just saying what people want to hear, to get the vote! Wake up!

      • YOU DON’T KNOW TRUMP I DO SO GET OVER YOUR SELF DONALD IS A MAN OF HIS WORD AND THAT IS MORE THAN I CAN SAY ABOUT THE ESTABLISHMENT THAT HAVE LET US DOWN TIME OVER TIME SO NOW IS A TIME FOR A CHANGE AT THIS TIME IN HISTORY TRUMP IS THE MAN TO DO SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME STURGIS

        • You claim you know Trump! Which I doubt. But, if that’s so, you realize everything I stated about his past, is true! I don’t know Trump, however, I do know about his past and, I’m not happy with him! So, you get over yourself! In case your wondering, I will NOT vote for clinton or whoever the liberal nominee may be! Though it’s none of your business, I will say; I have not voted for anyone for the last 20 years; I’ve voted against! Thank you, for your time.

          • YOU ARE WRONG I MET TRUMP AT WRESEL-MAINIA 5 AND AT THE BREAKFEST BUT THAT IS NOT IMPORTANT AS HE IS VERY WELL INFORMED AN MOST ALL OF THE THINGS THAT HE NEEDS TO KNOW AND HAS OTHER PEOPLE THAT ADVISE THE PRESIDENT YOU WILL SEE WHEN HE IS IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND NOT LIKE THIS ANTI AMERICAN THAT AMERICA WAS SO FOOLED AND PUT HIM IN OFFICE TWO TERMS I DIDN’T VOTE FOR HIS ASS SO GET OVER YOUR SELF OK BYE BYE

      • Sturgis,
        Trump is far smarter than you and he genuinely loves democracy and this country. Dr. Ben Carson endoresed him to day as did Senator jeff Sessions.

        • Giorgio Benhana, without knowing anything about me,and to say; Trump is smarter than me. Shows me how ignorant you are! However, I will say; Trump is more ruthless! The problem being, he loves money more! And, in case your wondering, if he end up being the nominee, I will vote for him, reluctantly!

      • ANOTHER ONE MISINFORMED PERSON

        • Hey genius, learn how to spell! It’s WrestleMania! Great atmosphere for truly getting to know someone; really? WrestleMania,,, how old are you? I’ll say it again, reluctantly I’ll vote for trump! But, because you don’t like me bringing up FACTS about Trumps past, (Investigate it for yourself) you get bent out of shape. Grow up kid. It’s Trump followers like yourself, that give the Liberals ammunition against him!

  7. With Cruz, at least we know what we are getting. When he was our Solicitor General, he did everything he promised us and more. As Senator, his main focus was on his constituents back home and maintained from NumbersUSA, where we score the Senators on what they SAY they are for and how the VOTE or NOT VOTE on that same issue. Cruz, ever since he took his Senate seat, has always had an A- to and A+! And if what he says he will do one the first day happens, I can’t wait for the second day. He said on Day 1, and I have known Ted Cruz for over 10 yrs.)that he would tear up that catastrophic Iranian deal and every unconstitutional and illegal act of Obama’s and make Jerusalem the capitol of Israel! Wow! What a first day. I can hardly wait for his second day. Cruz’s book,”A Time for Truth,” names names of the Senators who hold dirty smoke filled Chicago-style back rooms and negotiate deals with votes like gamblers. No wonder he calls them the Washington Cartel. He has and will bring them down. But at least they know what he will do, Trump who said a few years ago on Jay Leno that “The Republicans are so stupid, I could run as one and win!” More red flags should be sounding when one reporter asked him if he ever asks forgiveness for anything. Trump asked,”Forgiveness for what?” Apparently, this so called “Christian” does not know the basic tenet of Christian forgiveness!

  8. Texans know Cruz best and Cruz received over a million votes in Texas on Super Tuesday. Cruz is highly intelligent, a champion debater. Not everyone is aware that Cruz memorized the Constitution. Those million Texas votes will help in the General Election. Rubio is in over his head. He won Puerto Rico, but according to the news, Puerto Ricans can’t vote in the General Election.

  9. Dump Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Clinton, and Sanders. All crooked.

    I’m a firm believer in two term limits for ALL politicians; one in office, the other in prison.

  10. Everybody hammers Trump,on he did this or he did that.what they are missing is that was his personal life .He was not a politition. Cruz and Rubio voted for amnesty and visa Imigration,for agenda21 and the one world Gov. On record.Lets start hammering Cruz on his ties to big banks,and back door loans. Is he going to do the same as Obama.behind our backs while talking something else.Lets try something new No prior Government People.Go Trump got to be better than now.

  11. I take it to mean Cruz must be doing something right.

  12. what I would like to hear from Trump OR Cruz is about our aging, broken infrastructure. And putting Americans to work DOING this overhaul. Not one word has been uttered by either candidate. Joining the BRICS in rebuilding is surely one way to do this. I understand we have been invited to join in building a “land bridge” but no takers from Washington, as yet.

    • In order to listen one only has to open one’s ears, the main steam media will not tell you these things because they’re part of the the Global agenda and an ignorant voter is coveted?

  13. kidnapp trump and deport him into a worse prison in China and vote for Marco Rubio this is the only way to stop this Havoc

    • Don’t tell me, you converted to Islam?

    • Rubio sold us out with his Gang of 8 bill that would have made the Democrat party the only power in this country for decades, if we could have survived it at all without becoming the Socialist Europe our founders fought with their lives to leave and let us live in freedom.

      That’s the main reason Rubio, who was our Tea Party favorite in his Senate race, is now losing badly in his home state of Florida. We don’t take kindly to this kind of traitor, especially now that he is funded mostly by the huge sugar cane industry.

      No candidate is perfect, but Ted Cruz is far closer than the liberal Trump and the back-stabbing Rubio.

  14. Rubio will not voluntarily drop out because he has the full backing of the GOP. He is the Mitt Romney and John McCain from the previous elections. He will have all the money he needs because the GOP only backs Rino’s. The Republican Party has been betraying it’s conservative base for decades. It has never been more apparent or eye opening than after the 2010 and 2014 midterms when voters handed them majority control of both chambers only to watch the Republican Establishment continue to act as the democrat party JV team. Then Paul Ryan immediately negotiates the democrat version of the budget into being so that the defunding of Planned Parenthood could not be accomplished because he is the Rino many of us knew he was all along. No more lies, no more money, no more Rino’s. If the GOP self destructs; GOOD RIDDENCE!

  15. Michael Dennewitz

    I’be always said, if you believe ANYTHING that either the media says or the trolls coming in here say, you’re smoking or snorting some really strong shit..

  16. I have to vote for Trump as the GOP (insiders) have tainted themselves with Obama failure!

  17. To hell with all the pundits and RNC and media and Romney And Beck and so on! Vote and let the people resolve the election. If he fails, there will be another election … maybe.

  18. well lets hope cruz go’s down… I don’t if it fighting or not just as long as he goes down besides he shouldn’t be running for office anyway he a Canadian anyway and not born here so he is ineligible to be …look what happened the last time that happened we got that idiot obama and that tranny wife he’s got mickle

  19. AMERICANPATRIOT

    Bye Bye Kasich!
    Bye Bye Rubio!

  20. I hope the onslaught will be after the election and send the Clintons, Obama, RIED Pelosi to prison perferble gitmo.

  21. I will not vote for Cruz, Hillary, or trump. It looks more and more like I will not vote this year. I am more disgusted with my party than I have ever been in all my voting years, and that’s quite a few. Rubio was my favorite and he is almost finished now. Just can’t stomach the morally filthy, the liars, and the game players. What a shame that includes the top 3.

  22. Hope people wake up, Trump is not an honest candidate, we need a real conservative leader for our country. We are in a big mess from the Obama years.

  23. SORRY TO ALL OF YOU THAT WANT RUBIO, OR CRUZ NOT GOING TO HAPPEN THIS TIME AROUND TRUMP WILL TAKE IT ALL ALL THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE IN NOV. 2016 THIS IS THE RIGHT MAN FOR THE U S A THIS TIME IN HISTORY WE REALLY DO NEED HIM TO GET US OUT OF THIS MESS THAT OBAMA AND BIDEN GOT US INTO YEA!!!!!!! DONALD TRUMP

  24. The Rothschild’s told me they are supporting the biggest crook.
