Cruz gains in popularity with independents after refusing to endorse Trump

Daily Wire:
Cruz Post-Convention: Popularity Among Americans Holds Steady
The gain among independents more than offset any loss in popularity among Republicans.  I tend to think he is going to come out stronger as a result of his refusal to endorse Trump.  Many see him as having more integrity than those who decided to back Trump despite all his faults.  The sentiment among the anti-Trump faction of the party is so strong that Cruz probably would have lost even more support had he endorsed Trump.

I still think Trump handled the matter poorly and his attacks after the speech by Cruz showed him at his petulant worst.  A smart politician would have said, "I think when people examine their conscience they will vote for me."  Trump is not that smart.
