• New York City Democrat ‘Admires’ Ted Cruz, Says It’s ‘Time For New Blood’

    Since throwing his hat into the 2016 presidential race, Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz has been pounded by the partisan American press.

    So it was good to see a Texas Tribune reporter hit the streets of Times Square in New York City to get reaction from ordinary Americans about the presidential hopeful.

    Several citizens who were asked about Ted Cruz didn’t know who he was.

    Surprisingly, though, a self-described Democrat said she doesn’t know much about him but she “admires his energy” and “maybe it’s time for some new blood in the White House.”

    Ted Cruz is “not so worried about what people think,” the woman added. “He’s saying he wants to do what’s right . . . and I’m a Democrat,” she admitted.

    I’d say it’s a fairly remarkable thing for Ted Cruz to receive such a ringing endorsement from a Democrat in one of the bluest cites in one of thee most liberal states in America.

    Some guy said he “wished Ted Cruz would disappear . . . because he stalled on Obamacare and shut down the government.”

    Wow. Imagine that. A politician doing what the people of his state sent him to Washington to do.

    “I just like the fact that he likes to balance budgets,” one man said. “I like the fact that he want to protect the borders.”

    At the end of the round of interviews, an old man said “I would’t vote for him” because Cruz is “too right-wing-ish. Not that we like President Obama at this point,” the man added. “I wouldn’t vote for him neither.”

    Check out the surprising interview in the video clip above.
