Roger Stone: Cruz Likely to Win Wisconsin, But Trump Can Get Delegates

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is likely to win Tuesday's Wisconsin GOP presidential primary, Donald Trump supporter Roger Stone told Newsmax TV, but he believes Trump will capture some delegates in the Badger State.

"I think the polls that showed Cruz leading by 10 are about a week old. I do think the momentum is now with Trump," Stone said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show." "Bottom line, he's got to come out of here with some delegates."

Wisconsin is must-win for Cruz, Stone said, though Trump can survive with a loss, but will have to make up for it somewhere else.

So far, Trump has been able to win in larger states on days he lost somewhere, Stone said, so it was less of a setback.

"I am hopeful that he can emerge with as many as 15 delegates, perhaps as few as nine," he said. "But I think as the schedule goes forward, we move to much stronger states for him: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, all in his backyard."

Stone said he doesn't understand Trump's thinking behind calling for Ohio Gov. John Kasich to get out of the race since most of Kasich's voters would be more likely to move to Cruz.

"I think [Trump] benefits from split opposition," Stone said. "I hope Kasich stays in."

On other subjects, Stone:
  • Expects no marriage of Trump and Cruz, who have heavily criticized each other.
  • Said Trump's team must have a reliable hard count on the first ballot, as well as a good knowledge of procedural questions such as rules and credentials.
  • Said many at Fox News, including Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly and "Fox & Friends," have been friendly to Trump. And Stone himself has been invited to defend Trump on Megyn Kelly's show.
