Donald Trump—following his yuuge New York victory—has amped up his frustration with the "rigged system" that aims to block his path to the Republican nomination. His protests appear to be resonating with voters. He is projected to win 45% of the vote in Pennsylvania and Connecticut.

Trump points to Ted Cruz's recruiting of "double agent" delegates who are bound to Trump on the first ballot but will vote for Cruz on later ballots.

Cruz also seems to be fairly effective in rallying young conservatives who are fearful of a Trump nomination.

When Pigs Fly spent this week studying the demographics of Cruz supporters on social media and were somewhat surprised to learn that students are leading pro-Cruz efforts. He might not have Bernie Sanders' gravitas among young voters, but he is making progress.

Our latest blog post, "The making of young conservative activists" tells some of this story.
