I believe Trump motivations are for accomplishing what he believes is best for his core constituents, fed up working class people, and there is some common ground there across party lines, I also think he could use the bully pulpit of the populace to get some decent? things accomplished,

but at the end of the day, I expect Hillary to win, but prefer Trump as the fall back option over Cruz with a GOP House and most likely a GOP Senate, people should think of that.

You have much more faith than I do. I'd believe in the Easter Fairy riding magic leprechauns well before believing Trump would look out for anyone other than Trump.

Cruz is a true believer, with him you know what you're getting - an uncompromising dominionist. There is no middle ground there. The only advantage is that I think he's completely unelectable but if things go sideways, well he'd be the last person I'd want in the WH.

Trump is a blowhard asshole without any real ideas who has probably surrounded himself with yes men his whole life to feed his elephantine ego. But I think he is already moderating his message, I agree with all those who have said here and elsewhere that at his core he probably doesn't care about guns, gays, abortion or religion. Clearly Mexico isn't paying for a wall, clearly he's already said as much to the NYT, and as astonishing as it may sound I think that he'd be a more reasonable choice than Cruz. He is more media savvy than we think and he's pegged the dumb and racist Republican electorate for exactly what it is. But he's unscrupulous and will leave them in the trash as soon as he focuses on the general.

This isn't to say I in any way support Trump, his lack of vision, his idiotic statements or first grade behaviour. But I think 4 years with him would be a throwaway, Congress would let him do nothing he wants anyway. He'd probably appoint his liberal sister to SCOTUS. 4 years with Cruz are more terrifying to me.

Yeah, I'm not about settling on one or the other. Cruz is guaranteed to set us back a decade, but Trump could do more or less. I don't know what is "worse."

I feel Cruz could/would destroy America.

It's Trump who could/would destroy the world.

I think you can remove the "could" with Cruz. He will do all the terrible things he wants to.

But yeah, trump is just a huge question mark of upsetting the balance in the world.

Cruz can't win. Trump can.

If Cruz somehow breaks through and takes the nomination, Trump goes third party and splits the GOP vote.

Trump wins, they all fall in line like the good sheep that they are.
