What’s going to happen when the Pennsylvania Supreme Court reviews the Elliott v. Cruz decision? Judge Pellegrini ruled that the question of Cruz’ eligibility was justiciable and that Cruz was a natural born citizen. The decision has been appealed to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
I think that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court will:
- Affirm the lower court's decision. (52%, 34 Votes)
- Rule that the case is not justiciable. (35%, 23 Votes)
- Bar Cruz from the ballot due to ineligibility (9%, 6 Votes)
- Allow Cruz on the ballot because his eligibility is uncertain. (5%, 3 Votes)
Total Voters: 66
And the winner is (both in voting here and at the Pennsylvania Supreme Court):
Affirm the lower court’s decision
In a per curiam decision (a decision in the name of the court), the lower court’s decision was affirmed. This means that the lower court had jurisdiction, and that Ted Cruz is a natural born citizen.
