Trump Accuses Cruz of Stealing Iowa
by Deacon Blues
Trump is now accusing Ted Cruz of stealing the Iowa caucus through deception, specifically through an allegation that Cruz supporters at the caucuses misled Ben Carson supporters into thinking that Dr. Carson was dropping out, and should therefore switch their support to Cruz. Cruz's team isn't denying this, and instead is belittling Trump for trying to stay in the headlines.
As the Atlantic notes, the intended impact of this skirmish is to fire up deflated Trump supporters and cast more doubt on Cruz's credibility. But it does show that the GOP race will keep getting better and better, even with the field narrowing.
