Someone said Cruz cane across as a dick--I completely agree. From what I saw and heard, he's evasive, divisive and particularly slimy. More representative of a typical politician than of any uniquely consistent ideology. That said, it's Texas, and I think the Republican win handily despite the lack of enthusiasm.
Here in Bush/Conaway/oil country, I don't recall seeing many yard signs or bumper stickers before the convention. When I got back from Tampa, I saw a smattering of them but nothing to indicate any real show of support. However, Ron Paul signs have been planted here in Midland before and since. Just goes to show that the status quo "conservative" base wasn't ready to go all in for their guy until the final selection, but lovers of liberty chomp at the bit to flaunt the message.
