Republican Ted Cruz vaults into first place in new Iowa poll
My thoughts are that Ted Cruz is hated because he's not controlled by any particular powerful individual and he's brutally intelligent, the combination of which makes him a major threat to the global establishment.

Cruz is a turd
Mind if I ask why you feel this way?
I like Ted mainly because of 2 reasons:
1. I believe he's an honest man.
2. A Ted Cruz presidency costs me the least of my hard earned money.

And has he actually laid out his budget? I haven't seen his budget could you post a link as to why his Presidency would cost you less.
It’s time for bold change. Change that stops Washington from squandering Americans’ money; that scraps the current tax code and replaces it with a single, fair, low rate for all; that reins in Washington’s costly regulations; that honors the People’s work with the dignity it deserves; and that finally gets the government out of our pockets and off our backs.
Of course, because entitlements constitute roughly two-thirds of federal spending, no government spending plan is complete without addressing entitlement reform. And in the coming months, I will be laying out a detailed plan to do just that, to strengthen and preserve Social Security and Medicare, and to ensure their fiscal strength for decades to come. But we should start with federal discretionary spending.
I have already introduced the Cruz Simple Flat Tax, which reduces the existing seven individual rates to one low rate of 10 percent for all Americans; eliminates the corporate carve-outs and loopholes; and requires every business to pay the same Business Flat Tax of 16 percent. Under my plan, the after-tax income of all Americans goes up by double digits, compliance costs go down, and the economy booms. The Simple Flat Tax is so simple and transparent, in fact, that Americans will be able to fill out their taxes on a postcard or smartphone app.
One important upshot of the Simple Flat Tax is that it allows us to eliminate the IRS. That agency, as we know it, administers a rat’s nest of laws and loopholes that allow it to wield unfettered power and that embolden it to target political opponents.

I think everyone should start hyperventilating and make claims that they will move to Cuba if Ted Cruz is elected.

The same Ted Cruz who held a rally at a gun range the day after the San Bernedino massacre?

No more cold than cries for gun control before anyone even knew anything about what had really happened. No more cold than running headlines mocking those who offered thought and prayers, nevermind that those on the inside sent out texts imploring people to do just that ...
