Donald Trump says he will probably sue over the results of the Iowa caucuses, accusing Ted Cruz of committing voter fraud to win.
In an interview on Boston Herald Radio on Wednesday, Trump criticized the Cruz campaign for spreading a CNN report saying Ben Carson would not travel to New Hampshire and South Carolina after the Iowa caucuses, suggesting Carson was getting out of the race. Cruz apologized to Carson on Tuesday for his campaign not sending out updates that Carson was doing laundry and not dropping out.

“It’s a total voter fraud when you think of it and he picked up a lot of those votes and that’s why the polls were so wrong, because of that,” continued Trump. “I couldn’t understand why the polls were wrong.”
Actually, Carson over-performed. Unless he’s saying that his supporters left and went to Cruz, this is patent nonsense. It also shows Trumps completely uncritical reliance in polls, too.
“I think everybody is…he did another thing which was almost as bad. He put a voter violation certificate. I don’t know if you got to see that and it looked just like it was sent by a government. It talked about you’re in violation. It says voter violation up top on very official-looking stationery. The way you clear it up is go and vote for Cruz. The whole thing is incredible.”
Yawn. You may not like it, but this is hardly illegal, immoral, or improper. I have doubts about its efficacy in generating votes for the campaign sending it out, but what do I know? And then there is this:
“I’m pro-life. He told everybody I was pro-choice. He also said I was totally in favor of Obamacare and it’s the exact opposite.”
This behavior by Trump is completely unhinged. Even if everything Trump says is true it doesn’t really rise to the level of a shoulder-shrug in the company of adults. One thing is for sure, though, the next GOP debate will be utterly EPIC>
