Ted Cruz in Texas Solicitor General's office becomes a force for good in the cause of conservatism
Cruz has core convictions that he sticks to regardless of the politics and this seems to frighten many people in the establishment who think the way to power is compromising their principals to avoid politics consequences. In the process they have crated a rebellion in their own ranks from people who feel betrayed by those compromises. Ted Cruz Is now seen by some in the establishment as someone more trustworthy than Donald Trump. That is the beginning of a significant change in attitude.
