Ted Cruz may be closing in on Donald Trump's lead in some national polls, but political strategist Dick Morris told Newsmax TV
on Tuesday that he doesn’t believe the Republican presidential candidates "are going to go after each other."
"They're too close," Morris told "Newsmax Now" host Miranda Khan. "They like each other too much and they need each other's voters too much.
"All of the votes that Donald Trump hopes to pick up are now voting for Cruz. All the votes Cruz hopes to pick up are now voting for Trump — and if you attack the candidate, you're attacking his voters."

Morris is the co-author of The New York Times best-seller, "Power Grab: Obama's Dangerous Plan for a One-Party Nation."
He also told Khan that he "wouldn't bet his life" on Democrat Hillary Clinton crushing Trump in a general election contest.
"The important thing about Trump is that if you took the electorate of 2012, Donald Trump would lose," he said. "But we're talking about the electorate of 2016 — and the key to Trump's success is that if he's the nominee, he will bring into the electorate millions of people who didn't vote."
