NORTH TEXAS -- After a resounding win in Nevada, led by taking 46% of the Hispanic vote, Donald Trump was ready to proclaim he's the man for all the people.

"We won with young. We won with old. We won with educated. We won with poorly educated," Trump said in his victory speech. "I love the poorly educated!"

It's like the kids game "Guess Who" in the who's who of Trump supporters.

Now that the "Make America Great Again" traveling road show has an official hitching post in Dallas, let's meet the who's who of who supports The Donald in the Metroplex.

"Hispanic-American," said Rudy Narvaez. "I was born here, raised here."

"United States Air Force veteran, Vietnam," said 68-year-old Lawrence Wilson.

"I am Hispanic. I was born in Mexico," added the final member of the group, Jose Marichalar.

Just so we're clear, that's two Hispanics of Mexican descent not just supporting Trump but going door to door for him.

The question you immediately wonder is -- "They know about the wall, right?"

"When I go to Mexico to visit, I'm treated like a foreigner," Narvaez said. "I have to show documentation to go to Mexico."

Trump had the trump card in three straight states (New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada), but can he really come to the Lone Star State and knock off the lone Texan in the field, Senator Ted Cruz?

"Cruz is not likable," said Dallas resident and Trump supporter Paul Haney. "I mean, he doesn't have a friend anywhere."

Narvaez added, "He's another politician. It'll be Washington again for another four years of the same."

Apparently, Cruz and fellow Republican Senator Marco Rubio are taking their chances. We searched high and low without finding hide nor hair of North Texas campaign offices for the pair.

As for Trump, loving everyone has its consequences. He claims to really love the poorly educated, but maybe he should be more careful about what jobs they get in the campaign.

In recent weeks, Tulsa, Oklahoma, campaign press passes said, "Tusla," and a Facebook picture inviting people to an event in Oklahoma City said, "Oaklahoma City," before being corrected to "Oklahoma, OK," before finally being made right.

Trump and Rubio are both expected to speak in North Texas Friday leading up to Super Tuesday on March 1st.
