Ted Cruz likes to boast that he can “beat Hillary.”
He will lose to Hillary in Florida, and I remind you that only electoral votes count in the general election.
Trump, on the other hand, will tattoo Hillary in Florida. He will also beat her in North Carolina and will beat her in Ohio.
You can’t lose any of those states in the general election and be President.
Of those states Cruz might beat Hillary in North Carolina and will probably do so in Missouri. But he will lose Florida with certainty and he might lose Ohio.
If he loses either in the general Hillary is President.
