Indiana Governor Mike Pence to Endorse Ted Cruz
— Ace

Should help him, as Walker helped him.

Of course, Trump already locked down what may be an even more important endorsement in Indiana -- Hoosiers coach and freeform chair motion artist Bobby Knight.

11 Cruz has some ground to make up in Indiana. Frankly, I don't think any of these endorsements ever make a difference for any candidate.Most voters are smart enough to know Governor or Coach "X" is not candidate why.

At this point there are not a lot of undecideds left in te primary. The average margin right now is Trump +5.3 in the polls. I am also curious how the Fiorina gambit is going to play in Indiana.

16 Pence is not super-popular in the state. I like him, but a lot of my Republican friends aren't happy with him and are ready to support the Dem in the fall. Crazy, but we get wild hairs like that sometime. You'd think we'd learn - we threw out the state sup of education because she was supposedly anti-Common Core despite being a Dem and of course she went wishy washy on it as soon as she was in office.

24 Well, it will be interesting when Trump wins everything to see how soon he goes more left to get the Democratic voters. So we'll have far left candidate and a liberal candidate-just one is more of a put down artist than the other. Whoo, hoo! :^(

29 Every time protestors show up waving Mexican flags, Trump gains thousands of more votes. Here in SoCal we are quiet about this, but a lot of people - even Dems - are fed up.

30 I don't think it's the substance of an endorsement that matters (if endorsements matter at all), it is the wattage in support of the all in for the [insert candidate here] bandwagon. The volume is greater with knight than pence, in my judgement.

41 Yeah.. Bobby Knight is almost as big a doofus as Trump.. perfect fit! What helped Cruz in Wisconsin is that Walker has a pretty good network of politicians throughout the state to get out the vote.. I have no idea if Pence has an operation like that in Indiana.

42 Are any of the candidates going to talk about the Administration's new record of being the first to fail to reach 3% growth in any year of its rule? Legacy. Too early for that I guess. Kasich still has a path to a dumpster. I wonder if he's helping or hurting Cruz by staying in but haven't seen any good take on that.

Posted by: Meremortal at April 29, 2016 06:23 AM (hTqVx)

43 "Why did he wait so long..especially on a Friday!" Theory: Pence is in a fight for re-election. He cannot afford to upset any voters from either Cruz or Trump. He also cannot afford to upset any out-of-state power brokers or in-state power brokers. To square the circle he announces for Cruz on Friday. He makes the power brokers wherever they are happy and he hopes that the Friday announcement will fly under the radar screen of the people voting and not alienate any of them.

53 Look I don't like Trump but this is getting entirely out of hand...Waving Mexican flags, roughing up rally goers, and destroying cop cars is free speech now? - My post was intended to be sarcastic. The TDS that sees Trump as Dracula, Frankenstein, Hitler, and Stalin all rolled into one and the depiction of Trump as the violent aggressor against Michelle Fields encourages this. The end of defeating Trump justifies any means to do so even if it costs us our heritage of a democratic republic. The real issues this election is whether anyone will have any faith or trust in the government and whether we turn the country over to the barbarians.

No ticket with Trump would ever be a winner. He'll be thrashed in the GE.


And what would be the governing philosophy of that ticket? Cruz is a thoroughly ideological conservative; Trump is on the other side of the spectrum as a full-fledged populist. Some things just don't mix up.

65 Ladies and gentlemen, morons and moronettes, I present to you Trigglypuff, the new face of crybully campus activism:

Cora Segal is an activist originally from Boston, who is currently studying at Hampshire College in Western MA. She was first introduced to social justice through youth-led community-based groups in the Boston area, such as the City School and Sub/Urban Justice. From here, she developed feminist, fat liberation, anti racist, and anti capitalist perspectives, which she believes all play an integral role in working towards collective liberation. As a fatty, she&#8217;s very eager to see fat justice and all its intersections with gender, race, disability, queer/trans liberation, class, and anti capitalism, become part of radical movements. She currently organizes with various groups in the Pioneer Valley.

"Fat liberation" he repeated, to the surprise of absolutely no one.

If Trump doesn't get to 1237 delegates pre-convention, he'll be as mathematically "eliminated" as Cruz is.


It'll be either Trump on the first ballot or Cruz in the second. The majority of the delegates at the convention will be hardcore Cruz supporters. Only way he's defeated is if 1237 delegates are bound to vote for Trump on the first ballot.

Posted by: steevy at April 29, 2016 11:30 AM (B48dK)


You talking about the '72 Olympics in Munich? The Soviets were actually given *three* chances to beat the U.S. If they had failed on the third, they would've been given another.

And Bobby Knight wasn't the coach. If he had been, he'd have run the Soviets back to Moscow with their tails between their legs.

98 I don't even know who Bobby Knight is. I suppose people from Indiana do, but it would iinfluence their vote? Posted by: FenelonSpoke -------------- You're making me feel old.... Bobby Knight was the extremely successful coach of the Indiana Hoosier's college basketball team for 29 years. He coached a couple of other college teams, including Army and the US Olympic team. He won numerous championships, and his players at the time had a very high graduation rate. He never had his program at Indiana sanctioned for issues by the NCAA. He also had a volatile temper and famously threw a chair completely across the court after a call by a ref. Someone upthread I believe posted a link to that. He is beloved in Indiana. Did I mention he's a fellow Ohio State grad????

197 Bobby Knight is the Vince Lombardi of Indiana basketball.  Basketball in Indiana is on the same plane as going to church. Bobby Knight won games, for a very very long time.  Winning basketball games for a very long time in Indiana makes a person up there with the great Vince Lombardi.  His temper tantrums just made him entertaining.  I always used to enjoy watching a game coached by Bobby Knight.  There may or may not be concussions involved.


Would his endorsement make a difference in Indiana.  Yes.

240 Are any of the people that have a problem with/find it a waste of time/are dismissing "endorsements" from people like Knight, Tyson, the Robertsons, Kid Rock, Loretta Lynn, Kirstie Alley the same ones that complain that the Dems have won the culture wars and conservatives have no mainstream voice with the peoples? I'm not saying any of these people are A-list celebrities. And I have never understood the mind that buys their underwear based on some "famous" person telling them to, much less using it as a basis for making a voting decision. But I don't see these as anything other than a win for conservatism. If Ted were to win the nomination (that faint sliver of hopeychange is dying in my heart) I really don't foresee a mad rush from any semi popular pop culture name (outside of some mega church pastors) to put Cruz/Carly sticker on their Bentley.

264 Ghost of Kari, repeatedly, until someone gives him the negative attention he so desperately craves: "In the most recently released poll of likely voters from Rasmussen, Hillary and Trump are tied. " The same poll that told us Romney would beat Obama? Try shifting 5% from R to D, based on those 2012 results. In fact, you might want to make that 7% or 8%, to allow for the Leftwing Operation Chaos assholes who are skewing these polls to fluff the R candidate they know they can beat. Crunch those numbers, Einstein, and get back to us with your results.

He didn't throw chairs as far as I know. Then again, that would be hard to yank out a seat in a football stadium.  He did provide a great deal of leadership and motivation.  "Winning isn't everything - it's the only thing."  Half the state of Wisconsin barely speaks his name out loud.  Usually done in awe-struck whispers.

281 I think what is frustrating me the most about many conservatives (including on this site, possibly myself included) is that the things that Trump does that we think are negatives, such as the Knight and Tyson endorsements, actually are positives by the LIV. Tyson is still the darling of pop-culture. Knight's endorsement is greater than Pence in Indiana. It just hard for us to see that perspective. Trump is a lot better at the kulturkampf than we want to admit. I think his TV show was brought up yesterday as an example.

342 There's a link on the right to a Nate Silver 538 poll with the lede that Cruz has a 58% chance of winning IN. But when you look, that's the "polls-plus forecast" that uses an undisclosed formula for valuing endorsements. "Polls only" has Trump at 74% of winning. I mean WTF. They literally put their fingers on the scale and pulled down hard. Meanwhile there's a new Rasmussen poll (referenced by a post upthread) that has Trump and Hillary at 38% each, with 24% saying they'll stay home. This is consistent with the thesis I've advanced that Hillary v Trump will be a turnout battle over negatives, a race that Trump can win because of how the electoral map lays out, as Hillary's support will pile up in already Deep Blue States and Trump wins a few Purple Swing States that Romney lost. I actually fear Trump v. Biden, as Uncle Joe won't have as high negatives. In his talk where he compared Cruz to Lucifer, Boehner said that he believes that Hillary will lose the FBI Comey primary: "Don't be shocked ... if two weeks before the convention, here comes Joe Biden parachuting in and Barack Obama fanning the flames to make it all happen," Boehner said.

The OSU QB threw an interception directly to the Clemson player who caught it at Woody's feet at the sidelines. Woody grabbed the kid and then socked him in the throat. We knew he was gone as coach at that moment. Hayes was an incredible coach and man, who let his temper and competitiveness get the better of him. Might interest some of you on here that he was a veteran of WWII and taught military history at OSU in addition to his coaching duties. Eleven Warriors has an article on his service in the Navy as a LC. http://tinyurl.com/zngm8x6

A candidate that cannot attract a majority of voters is a flawed candidate.

Trump has legions of vocal supporters, but he still needs to take the majority of the delegates to win. Why is that a confusing idea?

353 Harun at 298: No, I have no idea what their methodology here is, I'm just basing my disdain on their past results. Rasmussen in particular, in recent elections, has missed wide right -- "just a bit outside", as Uecker might say -- for the last two cycles. In fact, if you allow for that by adjusting your windage about 5 clicks to the left, they're pretty consistent. So Trump would lose the popular vote something like 50 - 45. He'll win the states that Republicans always win -- the southeast and Texas. But he'll lose every battleground state and Clinton will crush him in electoral votes. Here, let me give you a hand, Kari: But Trump will put NY and CA in play. Ahhahahahaha no. He's not going to swing 25% of the electorate in either of those two states from D to R. That would be comical if it wasn't so insulting to the intelligence of those you're trying to fool.

Posted by: chique d'afrique at April 29, 2016 12:00 PM (6bMel) The difference is that a team that is behind may still be able to win, and it's poor sportsmanship to stop playing the game. The point of the primary season isn't to hold all the elections. It's to decide who the voters want. It's pretty clear at this point. It's not poor sportsmanship to yield when there's no mathematical chance of winning the nomination by vote; when the preference is becoming more and more clear. But it's no skin off my back if Cruz wants every remaining state to clearly state their Trump preference. All of these actions reveal preferences and priorities on both sides.

If no one gets to 1237 in the first round, it's an open convention...between the top two. The only path that katshitt has is: 1. to stay in and Cruz drops out 2. He deals with someone to be VP 3. The party fucks us all and runs a 'brokered' convention. So if you wanna bitch about a parasite hanging in, aim in on katshitt.

430 "But he'll lose every battleground state and Clinton will crush him in electoral votes." And Cruz will do better. How? Trump has nothing to gain by attacking Carly, but earlier today Cruz was talking in Indiana about the havoc wrecked on IN by outsourcing while standing next to -- GET THIS -- a public enemy of outsourcing while she was at HP. Meanwhile, Carly's shtick is that Trump and Hillary are but two sides of the same coin. Cruz amplifies this by saying that unless the good people of IN vote for AnoinTED the Apocalypse will occur. Ted is showing that he's a vainglorious narcissist and a catspaw of the Romney led #NeverTrump Inner Party. He's killing his career. Now before you say that Trump is a narcissist, which is true, note how Trump's sales pitch is aimed at "us", while Cruz's is always about Ted.

431 A candidate that cannot attract a majority of voters is a flawed candidate. Trump has legions of vocal supporters, but he still needs to take the majority of the delegates to win. Why is that a confusing idea? Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo at April 29, 2016 12:15 PM (Zu3d9) Because maybe in this go round the RNC didn't clear the path of "stragglers" like they've done before because they don't like Trump (and are actually feeling down about his whole "voting" thing). I'm not in charge of the Republican Party, they can do whatever the hell they want - but the people who invested in this election (not me, I don't get emotionally involved with anyone outside family) are not going to be happy about it. Again, why bother with the theater of voting?

435 Trump has taught me that classical liberalism is not popular. Which actually explains the GOPe. No wonder they aren't very libertarian/conservative: its simply not popular.

Yes, that is unfortunately right.

If you look at Pew polling of Republican voters, and ask what spending they favor cutting, a majority of *Republican voters* only favors cutting (a) foreign aid, and (b) welfare.  That's it.  Not entitlements, not even health care spending.

I think the rank and file Republican voter WANTS big government.  And it shouldn't be surprising that politicians of any party pander to what the voters want.

And so we have Trump, who finally makes that all public, and says "screw the whole small government crap, what the people REALLY want is brash flag-waving nationalism!"  And the people jump on board.  So those of us who really DO want smaller government across the board are left with nowhere to go.  We're going to have big intrusive government to stay now, at least for the foreseeable future.  Either we have big intrusive government enforcing socialist aims, or we have big intrusive government enforcing populist/nationalist aims.  Neither one is particularly appealing, since they are both big government.

Trump's basically at 1000 now. Add 150 from California and the 51 from New Jersey and he's at 1200. So if he wins Indian, which currently looks likely, that's all the delegates he needs. And if you look at the other states left to go, that 1400 number from the internal memo that was roundly mocked in the last week or so suddenly looks reasonable.

Libertarian party for a while.

I actually think if Trump could get elected and get his trade war, it would be very useful.

Right now, Trump voters are like Venezuelans listening to Chavez's first speeches.

They haven't experienced the lines for toilet paper yet, so socialism and hitting the Yanquis sounds awesome.

Yeah, but the Libertarians are also full of social liberals and open-borders idiots.  Plus, they have a total hard-on for legal pot.  Whatever man, but that's not like the most pressing issue of the day.  Also they worship Edward Snowden as a saint.  That rubs me very wrong.



Problem with granting Trump his wish of a trade war, is that we all along suffer with him.

What Lindsay Graham said about killing Cruz is true, it's just that Lindsay hates Trump more. If Cruz runs for President again he'll be a Rick Santorum. He won't get the big donors again, because his SEC primary strategy failed. Without the money, he would have been out of this race long ago. So, by hanging in to the bitter end, he blew his 2016 money for no good. The elephant in the room is abortion. By picking Carly as a faux running mate, Ted has doubled down. Trump made a bad gaffe by even talking about abortion with Chris Matthews, but nearly everyine knows that Trump doesn't really care about the issue. Which is where you need to be as an R presidential candidate if you want a chance of winning.

Here is what I think.


I think that in general, people who run for office as GOP want to reduce the power of government over people's lives.  But they have to first compromise with *their own voters*, which as polling shows, is not nearly as interested in reducing government as the rhetoric might suggest, and then they also have to compromise with Democrats, who of course are on a quest to expand government to ever-greater heights.  The net result is not appealing to anyone.  But that spirit is there, nonetheless.  With Trumpism, even the spirit dies.  There is no longer any need to even play lipservice to the idea of smaller government.

551 "He [Cruz] is a bad candidate from likability and other such aspects. I think he actually improved in this area, which is hard to do. He also has the usual so-con curse, which gets you votes in the primary, but causes trouble later. The only reason I support him is that he seems more principled than usual, and has demonstrated that. He also has run a phenomenal ground game and organization. Trump is like the antithesis: better natural politician, very few principles, poor organization, more likely to win, but less likely to deliver much. That said, until you see the Dem oppo dump on Trump, you should be cautious. I pretty much believe all these guys have some dirt. Posted by: Harun at April 29, 2016 12:35 PM (UBBWX)" All very good points. I generally like and respect Ted Cruz, but he didn't become my choice until my first two fell by the wayside. His speaking style can come off too stilted and he drones on. He's much better in a relaxed setting one on one or with a town hall. His excellent fundraising, recruitment of grass roots volunteers, and strong organization really impressed me. It's also hilarious the way he skewers Clinton with those funny, biting ads. I feel like I know what I get with Cruz - less flashy, but way more substance. Hillary is so vulnerable that I think Cruz can take her even after this rough primary. Trump's campaign doesn't appeal to me the way it does to so many others. He's also acquired a lot of baggage in his 69 years. Hillary's team learned from their mistake in not digging up ammo on Obama in 2008. She'd be finishing her second term now if they'd properly utilized the Rev. Wright tapes in 2008. They'll carpet bomb Trump into a radioactive cinder. He'll fight back very vigorously, but what Obama did to Mitt Romney's business record will pale in comparison to what the Dems will do with Trump's.
