ABC’s Matthew Dowd Dismisses Ted Cruz Win; Still ‘Doesn’t Have a Clear Path' to the Nomination

From ABC's Nightline

The late-night news magazine Nightline on ABC devoted its show Monday night into Tuesday on the Iowa caucuses and, near the top of the show, ABC News political analyst and former Bush administration official Matthew Dowd denounced caucus winner Ted Cruz’s chances for winning the nomination since he still “doesn’t have a clear path” to the top.

Dowd was set up by host Dan Harris pointing out to him that “we've seen in the past conservative candidates win in Iowa and then go on to fizzle” so he wondered: “Does Ted Cruz have a clear path to the nomination at this point?”
