According to exit polls, these are the top reasons why Republicans voted for Ted Cruz:

  1. Because Jesus
  2. Because the only other plausible nominee is Donald Trump and my state doesn’t let me switch party registration at this point
  3. Because he’s got my daughter and I’m not Liam Neeson
  4. Because I too do not know what carpet bombing means
  5. Because I thought I was supporting Led Cruise, Royal Caribbean’s renowned Zeppelin cover band
  6. Because most Republicans say huge tax cuts for rich people will spur such amazing economic growth that they’ll pay for themselves, while Ted Cruz says they’ll just cause a lot of economic growth and partially pay for themselves, and wants to raise taxes on poor people to make up the difference
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
