Donald Trump accuses Ted Cruz of stealing Iowa -- and demands new caucuses - The Washington Post

The unexpected sense of generosity that marked Donald Trump's concession speech in Iowa on Monday night began to fray during his speech in New Hampshire on Tuesday -- and appears to have evaporated completely, given what Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. By the end of his tirade against Ted Cruz's Iowa win, Trump suggested that new voting should be held.

Trump's initial tweet read:

Ted Cruz didn't win Iowa, he illegally stole it. That is why all of the polls were so wrong any why he got more votes than anticipated. Bad!

there do seem to be suggestions that Cruz deliberately misled people about Carson dropping out, boosting his own support sufficiently to win at the expense of Carson.

But, frankly, it's all part of the clown car experience on the republican primary this cycle.

Truth be told, this is an old part of US politics and, since WW II at least, has been employed the most by Republicans. California political operative Dick Tuck was infamous for his dirty tricks and there are substantial reasons why Nixon was called 'Tricky Dick'. And that is without even getting into the treasonous acts committed for the ultimate political gain of obtaining the presidency.

It seems to be true - mostly. Whereas nothing is OK for Democrats. Very confusing. What could possibly be causing that?
