For whatever reason, the news story says "Google searches for the words "Libertarian Party" exploded late Tuesday..."
Maybe it wasn't Cruz supporters searching for LP. Maybe all of Cruz supporters didn't support him for all the reasons you think they did. Who knows?
For whatever reason it happened, I think it's great news.
If they wanted a wall, they would have supported Trump in the first place.
And those socons won't be any happier with Trump's wishy-washy stances on social issues....unless they only care about his opinion over the last 12 months.
I'm in favor of this. It's a good idea if for no other reason than to try to get a bigger following for the Libertarian Party (and hence the Liberty Movement in general) for the future. Even if they nominate someone we consider less than stellar, how can it be worse than Trump or Hillary (especially since we know the LP has no chance of actually winning the WH)? Let's just try to help them build their party so liberty has a chance.
