In 2012, Cruz carried Harris County by just over 80,000 votes on his way to easily defeating Democrat Paul Sadler . But in 2016, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by over 161,000 votes in Harris County, while losing Texas by just over 800,000 votes.
Hope not. Cruz cut his teeth top of the heap in Princeton debate and is on the Princeton Hall of Fame along side the likes of Samuel Alito. He's won speaker of the year, team of the year and was voted North American Debate Champion of the year during his college tenure. Dude is an animal in debate. Beto has his work cut out for him.
LOL Fuzz I think I'll put more stock in Princeton's opinion of his debate skills and his multiple awards than your vitriolic, biased, rhetorical opinion. I've seen Beto talk. All fluff and unicorns; no substance.
The debates had nothing to do with Trump winning. Everyone on the stage was more articulate than Trump. It didn't matter what anybody said. The outcome was inevitable. After 8 years of failed Obama policies that left middle America isolated and abandoned and squishy, centrist do-nothing republicans, a complete revolution against politics as usual was bound to happen. Trump was just the catalyst when so much of America wanted someone to blow up the status quo. Right place, right time.
