The Trump-Cruz Smackdown

During the GOP political debate Cruz rattled Trump in a way we hadn't seen before. He extracted an admission from Trump that he's only going after him now because of how close the polls are, and that if he lost, he'd happily "go back to building buildings if this doesn't work out." It made him look petty. But while Cruz got the better of Trump early on, it didn't last. Trump effectively neutralized Cruz's momentum in his response to the "New York values" attack. Without a doubt, that was one of Trump's best moments of all the debates. Despite the ugliness early on, Trump showed rhetorical skill in a measured tone not often seen on the campaign trail. Trump also managed not to fade away the way he has in past debates. Bottom line, he didn't hurt himself, and his support will remain strong.
