While both Trump and Hillary prance around as the presumptive candidates, Ted Cruz is gobbling up the headlines in a media frenzy that is doing him more harm than good. If Ted is looking to his old friends in Congress to give him the nod, he better not hold his breath. Unless, of course, he wants to use this direct quote from John Boehner in his next campaign ad: "I have never worked with a more miserable son of a b*tch in my life... (he is) Lucifer in the flesh."

Way to make friends in high places, Teddy. Well surely he can get some other standard-bearers in the GOP to sing his praises, right? There must be somebody who likes him, somewhere ...

The BBC has compiled some sentiments from some of those who know him best:

Lindsey Graham

Republican senator from South Carolina

"If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you." Graham said picking between Trump and Cruz was like having to choose "death by being shot or poisoning." Mr Graham now grudgingly supports Mr Cruz's presidential bid.

Peter King

Republican congressman from New York

"I hate Ted Cruz, and I think I'll take cyanide if he ever got the nomination." He later told CNN that he would not actually kill himself.

Craig Mazin

Former roommate at Princeton University; now a Hollywood screenwriter

"I would rather have anybody else be the president of the United States. Anyone. I would rather pick somebody from the phone book."

Donald Trump

Republican presidential candidate

"He's a nasty guy. Nobody likes him. Nobody in Congress likes him. Nobody likes him anywhere once they get to know him."
