A CANDIDACY THAT CAN'T WITHSTAND PEOPLE GETTING TO KNOW THE CANDIDATE:

Ad shift: Cruz moves to quash Rubio, not Trump (SHANE GOLDMACHER, ELI STOKOLS and KATIE GLUECK, 01/29/16, Politico)

Ted Cruz has flipped his TV strategy heading into the crucial final weekend before the Iowa caucuses, rerouting money from negative ads that had been slamming Donald Trump to hit Marco Rubio instead.

The last-minute change is a sign that, even as both the Rubio and Cruz campaigns have publicly denied it, Rubio is increasingly a threat to Cruz in the state. [...]

"I think people are starting to learn the truth about Ted on immigration and a host of other issues that shows a history of calculation," he said. "And I think it's starting to hurt him a little bit. I mean, we'll see what it all turns into."
