Hate Him
Is Sen. Ted Cruz the palatable presidential alternative to Donald Trump? Sure, the Texan senator’s not exactly the Republican Party establishment’s first or even second choice, but the Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio ships have sailed and sunk. Many in the GOP hold similar sentiments to the Republican lobbyist Ed Rogers, who told CNN in December that “compared to Trump, he’s OK.” But if you run a business, are employed by one, care about the stability of the financial system, or would prefer that the U.S. economy not be needlessly thrown into disarray — a group that seems like a pretty broad coalition of voters — Cruz’s economic policy is not OK. And yet Cruz thinks the gold standard is a great policy.
