Spoiler Alert... For Trump’s Campaign Anyway
The bad news just keeps piling up for the Trump campaign. Tuesday night's results reflected Donald Trump’s poor performance over the last couple of weeks might have actually caught up with him at the polls. Two weeks ago, Trump had just split Utah and Arizona with Cruz, but sat firmly at the front of the pack and seemingly nothing could knock him down. His tweets about Heidi Cruz and statements on abortion may have proved to be the spoiler his campaign had managed to avoid previously.
