In an interview on CBN News, Ted Cruz didn’t hold back on his assessment of Donald Trump supporters.
Cruz told David Brody with The Brody File on Wednesday afternoon, “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.”
While he is absolutely correct on the matter, it is surprising to hear him criticizing voters whose support he will need if he is the nominee up against Hillary in November. And being “low information” voters and generally angry people, they will likely not take kindly to being called out for exactly what they are. While they profess to like that Trump “tells it like it is,” they generally don’t like it when “telling it like it is” is turned on them, of course.
Cruz: He does well with a certain demographic of voter. And Donald gave a press conference where he said, to quote him, ‘I love the poorly educated.’ Listen, part of it is I think Donald is taking advantage of his voters because I understand what they’re angry about, but Donald 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 forty years.
For four decades Donald has been supporting left-wing Democrat politicians. He supported Jimmy Carter over Ronald Reagan. He supported Joe Biden, and Harry Reid, and Chuck Schumer. He supported John Kerry over George W. Bush. He gave money twice to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2008. If you’re frustrated with the Washington corruption, the answer is not to vote for someone who’s been one of the key corruptors.
You know, you look at immigration, Donald’s supposedly signature issue. During the Gang of Eight immigration fight, Donald was funding the Gang of Eight- of the 8 members of Gang of Eight, Donald financially supported five of them- gave over $50,000 to five of them.
And so, what has happened, listen, 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.
