The system is rigged.
That’s the case Donald Trump and his staff have made in the wake of losing Colorado. Depending on how you look at it, he’s right.
That is if you look at it from a voter focused point of view. If you look at it as gaming the rules then he’s wrong and Cruz won fair and square.
What happened was Colorado held no vote. Instead, they held a convention and sent delegates to pick who would get all of the state’s delegates. Cruz did have a much better organization and knowledge of the process, but is that the hallmark of Democracy?
According to one of Donald Trumps senior advisors, “Cruz performs much better with party insiders. Trump performs better with voters… Cruz should demand a vote for Democracy.”
Ted Cruz won’t demand a vote, his camp is touting this as a huge victory. “We won fairly through superior organization.” That doesn’t exactly sound like what our founding fathers had in mind. Now, you can like Cruz all you want, but in the end, the lack of vote should bother you. No state in the general election will skip having a vote and usher in Ted Cruz, so the primary should play by the same rules.

This all adds up to just one more questionable tactic that Ted Cruz has used in his hunt for the nomination. He started on Ben Carson, moved on to Marco Rubio, and now is finally using them on Donald Trump. This time, he has help from the Republican National Committee.
Ted Cruz is being forced through by the anything but Trump coalition and that should bother every Republican, not just Trump supporters. Is this what we can expect from our party in all future elections?
