Dick Morris: Trump's 'Brilliant' Campaign Short on Delegate Process

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz isn't stealing the GOP presidential nomination away from Donald Trump as the front-runner says, but is only working the system better, political analyst Dick Morris tells Newsmax TV.

"What's going on really is that Trump is a guy who intuitively understood stuff that no other politician did, and he invented a style of campaigning that will live long after him," Morris told "Dennis Michael Lynch: Unfiltered."

"This was a watershed year in that he brought a whole new method of incorporating social media and rallies and all of that stuff. It was brilliant," Morris said. "Of course, in doing it he didn't consult anybody. He didn't talk to any of the political pros or consultants because he knew better. In fact, he did know better and he produced incredible results."

But without those advisers, Trump never backfilled an organizational delegate selection managing process either, Morris added. "It's like putting your army in winter uniforms when you invade Russia."

Cruz's strategy of wooing Trump delegates for a potential second round of convention voting if no one wins a majority on the first vote is not "Gestapo tactics," as Trump's newly hired convention manager Paul Manafort said Sunday.

"That may appear Gestapo tactics when you're the victim of it, but it's a pretty cool move in my book," Morris said.

Morris likened Cruz's tactics vs. Trump's to a boxing match where one fighter is going for the knockout punch (Trump) while the other is trying to win on points (Cruz.)

"The guy on knockout wades and swings away, the guy who's trying to win it on points plays the long game once you go 15 rounds and is constantly scoring with punches, but never a knockout blow," he said.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, meanwhile, is likely playing for a vice presidential offer, Morris said. Kasich is likely still vying for delegates so he can use them as bargaining chips for an offer from Trump, he said.

"I believe that right now there's only one way Donald Trump wins this nomination and that is with Kasich as vice president," Morris said.
