Krauthammer: The Question Now Is: Will Cruz or Rubio Drop Out of the Race?
Charles Krauthammer said on "Special Report" tonight that the Super Tuesday results were great for Trump, not just in that he won seven states, but also because Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are splitting the votes for second place.
He said the question now is: Will Cruz or Rubio drop out of the race?
Krauthammer said that Cruz has a stronger claim to remain in the race, since he's won more states and if he were to drop out, a large number of his supporters would likely defect to Trump.
He said another option is for both Cruz and Rubio to stay in the race and deny Trump the 1,237 candidates necessary to get the nomination.
If it went to a brokered convention, however, Trump could consider a third-party run, which would devastate the GOP.
