Ted Cruz’s Visit to Pastor Ronnie Floyd’s Cross Church Not an Endorsement

By Kevin Porter , Christian Post ReporterFebruary 29, 2016|4:40 pmSen. Ted Cruz

Republican U.S. presidential candidate Ted Cruz, making a Nevada Republican caucus night appearance, talks with Rachelle Clapp of Sparks, Nevada, about the problems she has had with the Affordable Care Act as she waited in line to caucus at Reed High School in Sparks, February 23, 2016.

Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas took some time off the stump Sunday to visit megachurch Pastor Ronnie Floyd's Cross Church in Springdale, Arkansas. Floyd, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, was quick to point out, however, that the visit was not indicative of an endorsement.

Floyd explained to congregants and media that Cruz's presence should not be mistaken for his (Floyd's) support, and that the church would welcome any candidate of any party to attend its services, Arkansas Online reported Sunday.

Perhaps in an effort to tamp down speculation that he is backing Cruz, the church preemptively issued a statement days ahead of the senator's Feb. 28 visit.

"Cross Church is thankful for and welcoming of anyone that wishes to participate in worship and hear a Gospel-focused sermon, thus Cross Church is pleased to welcome Senator Cruz," read the statement, according to KFSM 5 News.

"Cross Church will not and does not endorse any political candidate for any office. Cross Church endorses the Gospel of Jesus Christ and will continue to focus its resources on reaching Northwest Arkansas, Southwest Missouri, America, and the world for Jesus Christ."

Cruz, who has been vying for the support of evangelicals, appeared to be at home in the church setting, which is not surprising since his father, Pastor Rafael Cruz, is an ordained minister and has been such since Cruz was in his teens.

"He [Cruz] knows the songs," said Springdale Mayor Doug Sprouse, according to Arkansas Online. "It's obvious he spends time in church." Sprouse, along with his wife, Sandy, accompanied the Texas senator during his church visit.

As reported by The Christian Post last month, Cruz, who has publicly shared how his father came to Christ, has come under fire for speaking out about his father's conversion story more than his own.

The presidential hopeful's visit to Cross Church came just days ahead of Super Tuesday, when 12 states and one territory will hold their primaries. A native son of the "Lone Star State," Cruz is expected to win Texas and a majority of its155 delegates, and refers to Super Tuesday states located in the south as his "firewall."

On the eve of Super Tuesday, Cruz is spending the major of his day Monday campaigning in his home state, with stops planned in Dallas, Houston and San Antonio, accompanied by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and former Gov. Rick Perry.

Donald Trump Would Lose to Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in November, CNN Poll Projects

By Stoyan Zaimov , Christian Post ReporterMarch 1, 2016|9:15 amMarco Rubio

A combination photo shows U.S. Republican presidential candidates Marco Rubio (L) in North Las Vegas, Nevada on February 21, 2016, Donald Trump in Spartanburg, South Carolina, on February 20, 2016 and Ted Cruz (R) in Las Vegas, Nevada, on February 22, 2016. In South Carolina last weekend, exit polls showed Trump comfortably beat both his closest rivals Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio among evangelical voters, despite their more consistent appeals to Christian values.

A CNN/ORC Poll released on Super Tuesday has projected that Republican front-runner Donald Trump would lose to both Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders at the general election in November, with Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz both having better chances at beating the Democrats.

The survey of 920 registered voters, which was conducted February 24-27 and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points, found that Clinton would beat Trump 52 to 44 percent. Sanders is projected to fair even better, looking at 55 to 43 percent against Trump.

There were mixed results when it came to the other hypothetical matchups, with Florida senator Rubio leading against Clinton 50 to 47 percent. Rubio would face a tougher time against Sanders, the poll predicted, however, losing 53 to 45 percent.

Only a single point currently separates Cruz from Clinton, with the Texas Senator holding a 49 to 48 percent advantage. Sanders is also predicted to do well against Cruz, however, with the Vermont Senator beating Cruz by the highest margin of 57 to 40 percent.

Despite the hypothetical matchups for November, both Trump and Clinton are expected to win big in the Super Tuesday primaries of 12 states and one U.S. territory, a summary of polls compiled by RealClearPolitics.com suggested.

Trump continues to draw strong poll numbers despite a series of controversies, including one concerning the Ku Klux Klan. Although Trump later clarified he disavows KKK leader David Duke, he was initially hesitant to condemn him when asked in a CNN interview.

"I don't know anything about what you're even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists," Trump said on Sunday.

"So I don't know. I don't know — did he endorse me, or what's going on? Because I know nothing about David Duke; I know nothing about white supremacists."

Trump's commanding lead in the polls was illustrated by another compilation by the Huffington Post, which said that Trump is leading the Republican field at 41.9 percent, followed by Cruz with 18.3 percent and Rubio at 17.2 percent. Although Trump has been strongly critisized by his fellow candidates, he was boosted last week by the endorsement of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who dropped out of the race.

The Super Tuesday CNN poll found that voters believe divisions in American society are growing bigger, with 78 percent of Democrats, Republicans and independents all indicating that the country is more divided on major issues now than in the past.

Trump and Clinton were most often selected as the candidates that could best handle specific issues, with Trump topping the list in the areas of the economy, terrorism, and immigration, while Clinton was the top choice in the areas of health care, race relations, and foreign policy.

Sanders was the only presidential candidate to be seen favorably by a majority of voters, however, with 60 percent saying they view him positively, and only 33 percent negatively.
