Trump's Dirty War Losing Steam:
CRUZ Leads Fresh Wisconsin Poll
-and Now Within 3 Points Nationally

And Trump's surely helping the cause, with unhinged cheap-shot attacks on Heidi Cruz- when this woman is 10,000x times more impressive than unintelligible prop Melania Trump will ever be...

Alas, the pattern is well-established: Trump comes up with some
dubious excuse to orchestrate a character assassination (that's already been elaborately planned), goes into a two day twitter frenzy disingenuously playing the victim in a crudely staged scene that's a mirror-image of the one the master projectionist is actually about to spring upon his latest mark.

Then when Trump shifts into attack-mode, Drudge, Breitbart, paid bloggers and twitter trolls spread the false narrative/finish them off if they're still moving.

After this latest gutter-offensive, how any woman could vote for The Donald is beyond me... seems to have a bizarre love/hate relationship with females, 
to say the least.  

It's been truly unsettling to see Trump just nod his head in somebody's direction -like Carlo Gambino- and loyal thugs promptly go after them, 
be it online or at his monster-truck-style rallies. 

And the Orwellian propaganda generated against Ted Cruz blows my mind-- so sad to watch millions of Americans join-in the utterly dishonest trashing of this good man and all he stands for in service to some would-be 
post-constitutionalist dictator. 

Who knows how many paid trolls he's got out there spreading his noxious slander -there's obviously an organized online offensive- but the last couple months social media and news/blog comments sections have been a cesspool to behold, like dirty campaigning gone nuclear- and we've all got Trump to thank for it. 

I pray there's really not that many actual people out there who believe whatever tripe Dear Leader spoons them, and I will say over half the Trumpsters who come after me on twitter appear to be fake accounts, supported by teams of other fake accounts. With all the smear tactics, it seems Trump has combined Organizing for America with KGB disinformation techniques-- and it worked, for a while.

But are we really this screwed-up from the last eight years that we don't think there's anything wrong in the way Trump 'campaigns'... and that the answer is our own nominally 'conservative' Obama who also talks out both sides of his mouth... and runs like a scorched-Earth Alinskyite with a rabid twitter army?

Perhaps not: there is reason to consider Arizona a lagging indicator, with all that early voting for Trump (and Rubio) not truly reflecting the public's growing disaffection for the current GOP frontrunner. 

After Trump received an ass-whooping in Utah, a fresh poll suggests that the Tang-toned tyrant's schtick is also rapidly wearing thin in winner-take-all Wisconsin:
In a statewide Emerson College poll released today, Texas Senator Ted Cruz is not only leading Trump 36% to 35% in the upcoming primary, but Cruz is only trailing Hillary Clinton by one point in a hypothetical general election matchup, 46% to 45%.

In contrast, Trump is trailing both Clinton and her Democratic rival, Bernie Sanders, by the same 9-point margin of 47% to 38% in a potential general election match-up.
In addition, a new Fox News poll has Cruz virtually tied with Trump nationally,
within the margin-for-error... how bout that:
