Donald Trump Goes On Twitter Tirade, Who Did He Call Out? What Do His Polls Show For New Hampshire? [Video]

Donald Trump has taken to Twitter in order to call out Ted Cruz and accuse him of cheating at the Iowa Caucus. Trump is now demanding that a rematch take place in Iowa. On Twitter, Trump sent out numerous tweets in which he blatantly accuses Cruz of “stealing” the win in Iowa.

Early in the Iowa night, a story was leaked that Ben Carson was going to be dropping out of the race. Many political experts believe that when that news made its way around the state, Carson’s supporters jumped ship to vote for Cruz. Cruz states that he knew nothing about how that story got out and apologized to Carson. Trump believes that if Carson’s supporters did not jump on the Cruz bandwagon, he would have been able to win Iowa since Cruz would not have had as many votes for him.

The other huge issue that Trump is livid with is the leaflets that Cruz sent out to voters over the weekend. The papers that Cruz sent out made it appear that voting records were graded, and that in order to improve their grade, they would need to vote for Cruz in the caucus. Some experts are saying that this is just part of politics that Trump does not have experience in dealing with, while others are with Trump in saying that what Cruz did could be considered to be cheating. Paul Pate, the top election official in Iowa, stated that the letters that Cruz sent out “misrepresent Iowa election law” and they were “not in keeping in the spirit of the Iowa Caucuses.”

Trump also points to the fact that all the polls going into Iowa showed that Trump was ahead. He ascertains that the resulting Cruz win was not supported by the polls due to the actions Cruz took in order to ensure a win in Iowa.

Ted Cruz’s campaign is not taking any of Trump’s accusations to heart. Rick Tyler, Cruz’s communications director, commented to Politico on Trump’s Twitter tirade.

“Reality just hit the reality star — he lost Iowa and now nobody is talking about him, so he’s popping off on Twitter. There are support groups for Twitter addiction, perhaps he should find his local chapter.”

Obviously, Iowa is not going to redo their caucus because Trump believes his win was stolen from him by Cruz. Both candidates, along with the rest of the presidential hopefuls, are traveling across New Hampshire in order to ensure a win on Tuesday’s primary. The latest polls show that Trump has a commanding lead with 38 percent of the vote. Cruz is in a distant second place, with only 14 percent, and Rubio is sitting snug with Cruz at 12 percent.

Do you think Donald Trump has a point that Cruz stole the win in Iowa? Will Trump get his first win on Tuesday in New Hampshire?
