Jeb Bush has come out in favour of Ted Cruz as the man who can beat Donald Trump. Or at least, he kind of has, because he couldn’t be bothered to call a press conference, instead choosing to post this appeal on facebook, probably after a cocktail or two. Expect later this evening the occasional rant and some pictures of cats.
A surge! A Ben Carson surge! Yes, from 14 Feb – 18 Feb Ben Carson has seen his poll ratings in South Carolina rocket from a paltry 4.8% to a staggering 6.8%, taking him from a disappointing 6th place to… a slightly less disappointing 6th.
The real fight seems to be between Cruz and Rubio as to who can come second behind Trump, so very much a re-run of New Hampshire (albeit with Cruz as a contender for 2nd instead of Kasich). Bush… well… ah Bush. He’s still in there somewhere, spending so much money on a campaign that isn’t going anywhere that he’s starting to look like a socialist keen on redistributing all his wealth. Time to crack out another profound tweet methinks!
