  • Sen Cruz on Trump Supporters: "low information" voters

    Sen Rafael Edward Cruz believes that supporters of Donald Trump are:

    Donald does well with voters who have relatively low information, who are not that engaged and who are angry, and they see him as an angry voice
    "Where we are beating him is when voters get more engaged and they get more informed.”
    Trump is part of the problem according to Sen Cruz.

    "If you’re angry at the corruption of Washington, you don’t solve it by supporting someone who has been enmeshed in the Washington corruption for 40 years,”
    “The time has come,” the Walrus said,
    “To talk of many things:
    Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
    Of cabbages—and kings—
    And why the sea is boiling hot—
    And whether pigs have wings.”
    ― Lewis Carroll

    The pot calling the kettle black

    Calling the Trump voters idiots will bring Cruz not more votes : a US senator should know that the first rule in politics is :never blame the voters,because they are your boss and are always right .

    Second rule is : never get caught with your pockets full of bribe money, because voters will not trust an amateur .

    You can get caught with your pants down, as voters are tolerant in such things ;

      I find the choices except for Kasich to be very depressing. Its as if God is angry with us and is cursing our nation with terrible leaders.

        Or the American people are cursing their selves. There were plenty of good leaders to choose from, the American public by large would rather vote for cons and idiots though.

            The vast majority of voters are low information voters, across both parties and in all countries. The percentage of people who actually care about, much less understand the issues they're voting about is frighteningly small. Then again if most people actually understood and cared enough to make intelligent, well informed decisions, neither party would exist in its current form.

              Correct. Any "single issue" or "party line" voter is low information.

                Obama constantly blames the voters.
                Clinton was caught with foreign bribe money and his pants down.

                Nothing has happened to either of them.

                  We feel the same way about Canadians, no matter how they vote.

                    The tragedy here is that Cruz can't get past his ego enough to understand that voting for Trump is voting against people like him. The definition of stupid is to keep electing the same kind of people and expect different results. If Cruz thinks he is special he really is out to lunch. The reason he so unpopular with his fellow senators is because he is full of himself.

                    I saw a speech he gave to wall street where he told them that their brand of crony capitalism has to end. Like he was the going to transform them on the spot with the magic of his charisma and intellect. I'm sure they all went away saying what a pompous ass.

                      What makes Trump anti-establishment aside from being extremely brash. What is he going to do policy wise that's so different or groundbreaking? The only things he has proposed that's outside of the status quo are things he can't legally act on, like purposefully killing civilians.

                        Cruz is being particularly stupid. Half is voters are "Low information" voters so why would he attack them? Besides, if what he says is true (however one might define "low information") he needs their votes to beat Trump. Such haughty statements are part of his problem.

                          I don't like Trump but Cruz I do not believe is electable and more importantly he has no idea how to negotiate.

                            Cruz just did the Romney's 47% insult of the voter base.

                            Way to go.

                              I voted for Cruz, but this is the sort of thing that is draining my belief in his chances.
