Cruz is toast but most of his followers are slow to realize it.
Trump will win all five primaries next week and Cruz is currently running third in most of these states. The result is that Trump will approach 1,000 delegates. Once this number enters the public discussion, support for Cruz will further erode. Remember success has many fathers but failure is an orphan.
Reality is setting in with the politically astute. Last week, my friend—the Sith Lord—was ready to be a city coordinator for Cruz—this is a volunteer position. After New York, he has seen the writing on the wall. Yesterday he accepted a paid position with the Trump campaign. Trump will get virtually all the delegates in California.
Donald Trump just began to roll-out a plan to campaign in California. Ted Cruz has had an organization here for the last year. So whatever Trump is polling at now is his floor. He can only go up from his current numbers. Statewide, he is leading Cruz in California
Trump 41 %
Cruz 23 %

Cruz hit the iceberg on Tuesday and many are heading for the lifeboats. Trump is the inevitable nominee and thankfully there will not be more than one ballot in Cleveland.
