Poll: Ted Cruz the top choice of Texas Republicans for president; Rick Perry runs a weak sixth

As Rick Perry mulls his political future, Texas Republicans have a loud, clear message for the 14-year governor: Don’t run for president again.

A new Public Policy Polling survey finds that just 18 percent of Republican primary voters in the Lone Star State want Perry to run for president, something the governor has said he is mulling. The overwhelming majority — 69 percent — does not want him to run again.

How bad is it for Perry? He’s the only potential Republican candidate for president who trails Democrat Hillary Clinton in a general election match-up among likely Texas voters.

While Texas Republicans are skeptical of Perry’s potential candidacy, they are much more favorably inclined toward the state’s freshman GOP senator, Ted Cruz.

3. It's time to

Catch Carnival Cruz clowning around with a sex worker or farm animal. preferably farm animal. Disqualifying his citizenship might work, too.

He's a crazy sonofabitch that will make life for women in the US a greater struggle.

4. He'll make everyone's life a greater struggle.

He's a creep. The most hard core repubs I know didn't vote for him... but yet there he is, shooting off his ignorance.
