Cruz superior organization shows in delegate selection process

Wall Stree Journal:
While Mr. Trump leads in winning primary and caucus elections, and has won more delegates, the Cruz campaign is proving superior at the arcane game of picking the people who will be the actual delegates to the convention, where they will help write the rules and ultimately choose the nominee.

That means that if Mr. Trump fails to reach the delegate threshold to claim the GOP nomination on the convention’s first ballot, committees dominated by Cruz supporters could work to block him from winning enough delegates to claim the nomination on any subsequent ballots.
What this means is that if Cruz and GOP can block Trump from getting the majority required, Cruz stands an excellent chance of getting the nomination.   It is ironic that a man whose campaign is based in part on his organizational skills has proved to be poorly organized where it counts most.
