However, Cruz’s ability to command near 50% of the “very conservative” vote begs the question of how will these voters react now.
Conservative evangelical leader and president of the Family Research Council, Tony Perkins, told the Fox Business Network that it was no sure thing that conservatives would support Donald Trump’s campaign in November.
