Will Ted Cruz’s ‘New York Values’ Comment Hurt Him? This New Yorker Says…

Face it. Everyone with a working brain cell knows exactly what Ted Cruz meant about “New York values”. We know he wasn’t referring to the State of New York, but New York City. I am a born and raised New Yorker. Brooklyn born, I lived for years in Manhattan. New York values are uberliberal values and everyone knows it.

You need no more proof other than the fact that the citizens there elected a socialist Mayor. The most liberal newspaper in the country is the New York Times. The city just installed a freakinmasturbation booth at 28th street and 5th avenue, fercrissake!

Truth be told, furthering his statement and Trump’s response to it during this week’s debate made a mark for sure, but it won’t matter. Ted Cruz could call New York a stinking cesspool during a town hall meeting a week before the Iowa Caucus and it will not hurt his nomination prospects one iota.

Why? First of all, most voters know New York values are the polar opposite of “fly-over country” values and the majority of citizens in the primary election states and caucuses agree with his statement. Secondly, who cares about New York in terms of electoral votes? Surely Ted Cruz doesn’t. He doesn’t need New York voters and will have never won New York’s electoral votes regardless. No Republican presidential candidate has won New York electorally since Ronald Reagan won it in his landslide 1984 election and even then, he won it only by a slim 3% margin.

Finally, most Republicans and conservatives know that the Obama Administration is the epitome of “New York Values” and the damage it has wrought on our country.

Cruz walks away from this undamaged.
