Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign manager, Jeff Roe, shared the campaign’s internal polling information with Donald Trump’s team ahead of the New Hampshire primary earlier this year. According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, Roe called Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s campaign manager at the time, to inform him that their internal polls showed Trump losing ground in the key state after he aggressively attacked the other GOP candidates. Speaking at a post-election event at Harvard, Lewandowski said the information was valuable because the Trump team at that time was not conducting internal polling. Trump won the state handily, and was propelled to victory in subsequent states on his way to winning the Republican nomination. Roe justified the move by saying it was essential that Trump defeat the other candidates that could have had a chance in the granite state. “We needed Trump” to defeat the other candidates, Roe is quoted as saying.
