ANALYSIS:

Polling data had shown Trump with a lead in Iowa for weeks. LifeNews attributes Cruz’s win over Trump to the former’s pro-life record.
According to ThinkProgess, less than a week before the Iowa caucus, Cruz gave the hundreds of Iowans at a rally a list of his pro-life actions as U.S. Senator and former Texas solicitor general, including efforts to de-fund Planned Parenthood, enact parental notification laws, and prohibit partial-birth abortion. Cruz aimed some of his comments specifically at Trump, whom some question about the sincerity of his pro-life stance. Cruz said: “Every candidate in a Republican primary says they’re pro-life. That’s what you say in a Republican primary, regardless of the facts. The question we ought to ask is, don’t tell me that you’re pro-life. Show me. When have you stood up and fought to defend the right to life?”
9 days before the Iowa Caucus, on Jan. 23, 2016, Trump finally outlined his pro-life stance in an op/ed in Washington Examiner. He said America has gone astray because we have moved away from many of this country’s founding principles, most notably the right to life. He said he is pro-life with exceptions only for the very rarest abortions:

“Let me be clear — I am pro-life. I support that position with exceptions allowed for rape, incest or the life of the mother being at risk. I did not always hold this position, but I had a significant personal experience that brought the precious gift of life into perspective for me.”

At least for me, the outcome is no surprise. Popularity with the voters is never going to overcome rigged voting machines.
The fact that not a single news outlet has the integrity to honestly allow discussion on the source and true definition of the term “Natural Born Citizen” the founders inserted in the Constitution for the qualification to hold the office of president is clear evidence there will be no honest process.
Only the ignorant, traitorous liars, or cowards, refer to obama as president. Only the ignorant, traitorous liars, or cowards, claim cruz, rubio, or jindal, are “Natural Born” U.S. citizens.

It is shameful that so many will allow the office of POTUS to continue to be degraded by those not even born here and were birthed by one us citizen parent. We should seek to have high standards for POTUS…not desperate for a POTUS who claims to have similar values to conservatives that he will be accepted even though 20 years ago he would have been laughed out of the country for not being born on us soil. Having 2 parents as citizens and born on US soil should be prerequisites for anyone running for POTUS…next thing you know, arnold… Read more »

I can’t believe people want the country to get better but yet keep trying to vote people that aren’t qualified to run for the president of the US. Just like Bama was NEVER qualified, and they want to start the same CRAP all over again! Cruz is a Canadian he falls short on birthright, but our country won’t survive if we don’t uphold OUR CONSTITUTION! All of the people in Washington need charged with Treason for the wrong they have done the American people and Country! Try em and Fry em, problem solved, then go after the Elitist like Soros,… Read more »

I don’t trust any of this process anymore. I remember during the last election that Ron Paul people were intimidated, excluded and there were all sorts of nasty shenanigans going on during the caucus. Now I just read this morning that there were ties of Hillary and Bernie in 6 of the districts and they flipped coins to see who the vote would be given to. All six times the coin flipped for Hillary. Really ?

Ditto what you said Lana. I don’t trust any of it at all!

We need to go back to paper ballots, with “observers” post at each and every polling station. With the Hildebeasts addiction to felonious activity–who in their right mind would think that she wouldn’t rig a “toss of the coin???”

To imply by the results of the Iowa caucus that Trump is a loser would be a mistake. It is a mere setback, if that. Supporters are still flocking to Trump and he has received so much free media coverage will others have emptied their campaign chests.
