Interesting little graf here which raises a possibility that Ryan--through his awful, horrible, terrible, budget-- just tossed the (R) nomination to Cruz or Trump.
...Together, the four “moderate” candidates only earn just over 40
percent of the Republican vote in New Hampshire. Trump and Cruz together
earn 40 percent support in New Hampshire, a state which is far less
conservative ideologically than other early voting states.
Not only are Kasich, Bush, Christie and Rubio contesting the same slice of the party, but that slice is getting smaller.
Anxiety about the economy and foreign affairs are part of this
equation. So too, though, is the Republican Congress’ apparent
acquiescence with President Barack Obama’s agenda. In many ways, these
four promise the same leadership that ceded almost all policy and
spending ground to the Democrats just a couple weeks ago....
... Conservatives are relatively united behind either Trump or Cruz, while
the establishment candidates are hopelessly splintered. Perhaps the
biggest difference, though, is that the conservative wing of the party
has grown so much larger that it can accommodate two leading candidates....
Like I said: "interesting."
