My Republican presidential power-rankings this month reflect all of this uncertainty.
Polls show Cruz and Trump locked in a tight race in Iowa, but Trump is polling considerably better in New Hampshire. Clinton claimed that Sander's healthcare plan would "completely dismantle Medicare", which makes no sense seeing as Sanders has been fighting for a Medicare for all system virtually his entire political career. Polls there show a neck-and-neck battle with little more than two weeks to go until Iowa on February 1 stages the first nominating contest on the road to the November 8 election.
GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz is not backing down from his derisive comments about "New York values".
"And as much as I like Donald Trump personally, there is a marked difference between his record and my record", Cruz said.
Then Trump played the birther card stoke a renewing a controversy over whether the Canadian-born Cruz whose mother is a US citizen was a "natural born citizen" eligible to serve as president under the Constitution.
This doesn't determine who will end up winning these primaries, but it does say who the people are more interested in and the polls indicate, especially among millennials, all this attention may not be a bad thing.
This all seems to be stemming from Trump, who seems to be revitalizing the "birther" frenzy and stir up the xenophobes in America.
Aboard his campaign bus Monday evening, Cruz told NPR that voters want "someone they can trust - not someone who, on any given day, they don't know what he's likely to do". "It's not fear and terror, it's reality", Trump said.
Trump is now working hard to paint Cruz as a flip flopper who will say anything to get elected, as he tries to maintain his front-runner status. "Especially when you will have two candidates who have been very strong". The four others together are about a quarter - enough to give voters a viable alternative to Trump and Cruz, if only they could put country before self.
However, Limbaugh went on to say that it is just par for the course for the two leading candidates to be attacking one another.
Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida was next at 11 percent, followed by retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson at 9 percent.
On last night's episode of SNL, Cruz, played by Taran Killam, mocked the candidate's thinly-veiled dig at NY stereotypes, describing "New York values" as scenes from the 1990's sitcom "Seinfeld". Cruz tried to turn the insult into a joke Monday, posting a message on Twitter saying Americans feel "nasty" toward the "Washington Cartel".
"It is amusing seeing the elite in NY and D.C. run around with their hair on fire, wondering what on earth are NY values. And then today it comes out that he's also borrowing money from CitiBank and he doesn't list it." said Trump.
