For me, all that matters is that neither is elected president. From the primaries so far, Cruz is much less electable than Trump, so I want the Republicans to stay true to their course in the last several years and nominate him. Trump probably isn't electable either, but why take chances?

Cruz is certainly a more rigid ideologue than Trump.
"Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted. That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history."
- Aldous Huxley

"Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing has happened."
-Winston Churchill

“Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one!”
–Charles Mackay

"It doesn't matter how smart you are - if you don't stop and think."
-Thomas Sowell

"It's one of the functions of the mainstream news media to fact-check political speech and where there are lies, to reveal them to the voters."
-John F. (of CMG)

Trump isn't an ideologue at all. He's so determined to be politically incorrect in every way, in substance and style, that he flouts Republican (and Democratic) articles of faith as if he doesn't even know what they are. He just blunders on regardless, changing his stated positions on the spur of the moment. That in itself, setting aside the actual positions, makes him unfit to be president, and should make him unelectable. But quite a few Republican voters in 12 states apparently don't think so.

Trump is a buffoon, he's not smart enough to even be able to spell idealogue.
