So I was just wondering why nobody cares about this? I figure if a Democrat had just achieved that, the media would be going ballistic right now.
Not only did Cruz win, he won with more votes than any Republican has ever received in the Iowa caucus. A close third, Marco Rubio, is also Hispanic (and he's the current bookie's favourite to win), and a black man came fourth. Between the three of them, they account for about 60% of the vote total.
Yet Republicans are racist, right? Or has that meme finished, and they're sexist now? You know, because Hillary's running.
