My opinion is that Ted Cruz is a Ruler. He has the personality of a wrinkled shirt, and I don’t care for his ideology.
BUT, like a classic Ruler, he put together a solid ground game. One commentator said that he had people on the ground in every single county in the first four states a couple of months ago.
In the end, Trump is a much more captivating communicator than Cruz (setting aside his ideology which I don’t care for either) so because of his ability to gather large crowds, he was casual about the grass roots structure.
I have no idea how the race will play out long term, but for the moment, I tip my hat to the man who knew hard work on the granular level could offset the lack of charisma, and it allowed him to win the Iowa caucuses.
I get so frustrated with Christians who have grandiose dreams and visions, but can’t, won’t or don’t do the gritty work in the Kingdom. I believe in miracles, but I also have a penchant for dirt under the fingernails.
