For Trump Foes, Is It Better to Vote Directly for Cruz or Indirectly for Kasich ?

   For Republicans, a vote for John Kasich may seem like a reward for a nice man with a solid, center-right resume and without the sharp rhetorical edges of Donald Trump.
    However, a look at the delegate selection rules and the string of small state victories of late by Senator Ted Cruz shows votes for Kasich will only contribute to whittling away a few delegates from Mr. Trump in NY as neither Mr. Cruz or Mr. Kasich can win here.
    Slowing the Trump bid will ensure an open convention that only Mr. Cruz can hope to prevail at since he has no numerical path to winning on the first ballot.
     There is no way convention goers will spurn the top two vote getters and reward the guy who only won one state.
     John Kasich will not win in a wild, and wide open convention.

Solid center right??????????


You can't possibly be serious. Anti-Second Amendment, goobermint health care advocate, among other things. If that is what is considered center-right these days, this country has gone completely stark raving insane. All of those who gave their lives in WWll to preserve the Republic have to be rolling in their graves!

Trump and Sanders have opened the eyes of millions of people and would do well to sit down and talk openly about teaming for a third party and who would be Pres. and VP.. I doubt if these things will happen howev er if they did they would win over the corrupt two party system.
Imagine I been around for 70 plus years and just go first hand insite into how corrupt our current Elite in this country are..

Kasich is at the bottom of my list of current candidates. As much as I dislike the democrats, I would vote for them to keep a RINO out of office.

A democrat posing as a republican and a communist for a third party run for Pres. Hell, why not? Everything is already about as screwed up as it can get.
