Ironically, Sanders, Cruz and Trump all make similar arguments: the system is rigged against average Americans; special interests and political "cronies" are reaping the rewards; and nothing short of a massive overhaul is in order.

Earl Ofari Hutchinson

Trump and Cruz are the GOP's textbook Catch-22. One of them figures as a real possibility for the presidential nomination. For GOP leaders to not support them almost guarantees a flaming Election Day defeat. But to support them could mean the same.
