Is Trump About to Lose His Fourth State in a Row?

Leon H. Wolf, RedState

Based on past experience, Cruz will likely overperform the polls and Trump will likely underperform them, which means that Trump might be lucky to escape Wisconsin with a handful of delegates from a Congressional district or two.

Wisconsin final arguments: Cruz expected to win, but race could tighten

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The question as election day dawned is whether the shift that took place in the race last week — when Trump's attack on Heidi Cruz and various other ill-advised comments began to catch up with him — whether that momentum shift has continued, or whether it has slowed.

Cruz critiques Trump on eve of Wisconsin primary

Lisa Hagen, The Hill

"It's easy to talk about making America great again. You can even print that on a baseball cap," Cruz said, referring to Trump's campaign slogan. "But the real question is, do you understand the principles and values that made America great in the first place?"

The Full Spectrum Conservative In Today's Wisconsin GOP Primary

Ted Cruz is the only candidate who can credibly run for president as a full-spectrum conservative, build a winning conservative coalition AND who can be trusted to, without question, govern according to limited government constitutional conservative principles. We urge our friends in Wisconsin to vote for Ted Cruz in today's Republican primary election.

Pat Buchanan Joins Trump – Cruz Convention Unity Movement

As Pat Buchanan said, “No matter who wins in Cleveland, the establishment must lose.” We urge Trump and Cruz delegates across the country to do what their compatriots in Tennessee and a few other states have started to do; get together and form an informal alliance that commits them to voting for Cruz or Trump – and only Cruz or Trump.

Republicans aren't waiting until the convention to duke it out. They are starting to fight now.

Incompetent Donald Trump Campaign Appears To Have Zero Delegates From North Dakota

streiff, RedState

In a state where the Trump campaign had been hooting about their dominance, the Trump campaign seems to have come away without a single delegate. None of these delegates are bound but what is for certain is that Trump has more likely than not been shut completely out in the North Dakota delegate hunt.

Trump not ruling out third-party run

Jessie Hellmann, The Hill

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said in an interview aired Sunday that he wouldn’t rule out a run as a third-party candidate if he doesn't win the GOP nomination. “It’s not a question of win or lose; it’s a question of treatment,” Trump said on "Fox News Sunday."

In Wisconsin Trump Hits the Limit of His Stream of Consciousness Campaign

The arrest of Donald Trump’s campaign manager for grabbing a female reporter, and Trump’s ridiculous attempts to lie and tweet him out of the rap in the face of clear video evidence drove Trump’s numbers with women even lower. But Trump hit the limit of his stream of consciousness campaign with the truly bizarre statement that women who have an abortion should somehow be punished if abortion is illegal.

How to Lock the Establishment Out of Cleveland

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

All Trump and Cruz need do is instruct their delegates to vote to retain Rule 40 from the 2012 convention. Rule 40 declares that no candidate can be placed in nomination who has failed to win a majority of the delegates in eight states. Trump has already hit that mark. Cruz almost surely will. But no establishment favorite has a chance of reaching it.

April Fools': Cruz 'Rickrolls' on Trump debate

Nick Gass, Politico

For months, Ted Cruz has challenged Donald Trump to a one-on-one debate. On Friday, the Texas senator tweeted, "Happy to hear @realDonaldTrump accepted my challenge to debate one-on-one". The only caveat: Friday is also April Fools' Day.

New Wisconsin Poll Shows Cruz Is Slaughtering Trump Ahead of Primary

Caleb Howe, RedState

Fox Business Network released a new Wisconsin poll on Thursday evening showing that Ted Cruz has a huge lead over Donald Trump in the state, 42 percent to 32 percent. John Kasich takes 19 percent. Cruz's lead is even larger among those who will "definitely" vote.

The peasants have tasted the milk and honey; establishment is finished

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlan’s challenge of Mr. Ryan is a challenge of the Washington ruling class, and it’s a message for the smug and self-satisfied who hang out with the ruling class. The well of anger and disgust that Donald Trump, and Mr. Nehlan, are drawing water from is a deep one.

Trump Hates Super PACs Except When He Uses Them

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

Trump says he hates Super PACs, but that’s not true. He only hates them when they hurt him. And they’ve hurt him. When it benefits him, Trump will go all-in for Super PACs. He’s a hypocrite on this just like every other issue in his campaign to be cultist-in-chief. Thank God we have Super PACs to stop him.

Minimum Wage, Immigration, Tariffs And Jobs: Only One Candidate Has It Right

Steve Berman, The Resurgent

There’s only one candidate who doesn’t buy into the liberal talking points of mandated wealth redistribution, centrally-planned market manipulation, and job destruction. Ted Cruz gets all the answers right.

Donald Trump can’t quite speak the language of conservatives

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Trump's conservatism, as explained in an interview with the Washington Examiner in January, was never of the movement variety. He is very much a nationalist rather than a limited-government person, a pre-Reagan Republican.

Present at the Destruction

Rich Lowry, Politico

Every rational calculation says that Trump should seek to preserve the pledge. At this point, he is more likely than anyone else to be the nominee and benefit from the support of his competitors. He should want to use every possible lever of unity at his disposal given the threats of an independent conservative candidacy should he win the nomination. And yet, he's done the opposite.
