This is Trump last alternative before the elections – Cruz
Cruz alluded to the fact that Donald Trump is running out of patience and ideas as the Iowa poll draws near. He said Trump had tried the raise the issue of his birthplace earlier but there was no way. So this is just one desperate move.
“Back in September, my friend Donald said he had his lawyers look at this in every which way, and there was no issue there, there was nothing to this birther issue. Now, since September the Constitution hasn’t changed, but the poll numbers have. And I recognize that Donald is dismayed that his poll numbers are falling in Iowa. But the facts and the law here are really quite clear,” Ted said.
Cruz dismisses his in eligibility authoritatively

Senator John McCain who agrees with Trump was bashed by Limbaugh. Sh said: “It’s getting into bizarro territory here now. Remember now, McCain was born in Panama, and his presidential eligibility is the same, and based on the same constitutionality as is Ted Cruz’s.”
Hannity said “I see no issue here for Ted Cruz,” with Ingraham agreed, saying: “There’s no issue whatsoever.”
