While the offical NC Primary is tomorrow, I voted last week for Ted Cruz because I don't want Trump to get the nomination and I also would prefer that no candidate gets the required delegates either. I honestly don't like any of the other candidates that much since Rand Paul dropped out but I do like Kasich the most and Rubio is just less insane than Cruz/Trump. I personally don't like Cruz or Trump at ALL. Cruz is a theocrat and Trump is a madman. However, I decided a vote for Rubio/Kasich was a waste at this point and just allows Trump to more easily get delegates. I think every candidate but Trump gets this too. I was hoping if Cruz and Trump could square off so that neither got the majority than open voting would take place in some months and the part would (hopefully) select Kasich to be it's nominee.
Was this a good idea? I know "playing the game" and "voting for the lesser of two evils" is NOT the proper way to do politics but I didn't want to just the Trump Train keep blowing full speed if I knew I could help derail it. What are y'all's opinions.
Note: I am a moderate with more right leanings. I know the Democrats have their own thing going on but I really don't want to get involved in their primary.

There are some serious issues I take with Cruz, but in the end, I trust him. I trust him to know what the constitutional limits of his power are. I trust him to not burn the nation to the ground in the next 4 years.
He is not my ideal candidate, but compared to Trump, he is who anyone sane would want.
A good thing about voting for a sitting senator? You can look him up on YouTube and watch hours upon hours of him in session. You can see what kinds of questions he asks. You can see how he treats colleagues on both sides of the aisle. We can look at Cruz in the senate and have an idea what we're getting. We can't do that with Trump. We can't even look at what Trump has said to see what we're getting. He has said everything and anything on every issue in the last decade, so we have no idea what he actually believes, and no reason to believe his current position is anything more than what people want to hear to earn votes.1
