Recent polling shows that a majority of Americans view Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas unfavorably. Trevor Noah thinks he knows the reasons why.
Noah, who hosts "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central, took a closer look Thursday at some peculiar things Cruz and his wife Heidi revealed Wednesday during a CNN town hall. The comedian mocked the candidate for his fondness of "The Godfather Part III," famously regarded as the weakest film in the Francis Ford Coppola's mafia trilogy, and an odd story Cruz told about Campbell's chunky soup.
"Really, 'Godfather III'? The movie everyone agrees is the worst 'Godfather'?" Noah asked after playing a clip of Cruz defending the film to CNN's Anderson Cooper Wednesday night. "The credits from the second Godfather are better than 'Godfather Part III.' Saying you like 'Godfather Part III' is like saying, 'You know what my favorite part of sex is? The part where you take the condom off and flush it down the toilet.'"
Noah later took aim at an odd story Cruz and his wife told about how he bought 100 cans of Campbell's chunky soup after their honeymoon.
"When I married Ted, we got back from our honeymoon, and he went off to the store and came home by himself. And I was completely shocked to see that he arrived back at our apartment with literally 100 cans of Campbell’s chunky soup. I never bought 100 of anything," Heidi Cruz told Cooper.
"Who is this man?" Joked Noah. "This is so creepy. The first thing you do after your honeymoon is buy a carload of soup. What happened on the honeymoon? Is he taking a bath in it?"

According to CNN, Cruz currently faces a 53 percent unfavorable rating compared to 26 percent favorable. A smaller, but significant amount of Americans — 33 percent to be exact — noted that they view the Texas senator as "strongly unfavorable." Those numbers are better than those of current GOP front-runner Donald Trump, who sports an almost 66 percent unfavorable rating, but they still do not bode well for a general election.
