Friends don’t let friends vote for Kasich


Wisconsin does not allocate Republican delegates proportionally. As I explain over at RightWisconsin, every vote cast for Ohio Governor John Kasich is a lost opportunity to vote against Donald Trump.

…if Kasich draws enough former Rubio voters, he could block Cruz’s campaign from winning a plurality statewide. That would award the eighteen statewide delegates to Trump as well as give him bragging rights about winning another state when all eyes are on Wisconsin, building Trump’s campaign momentum going into the final contests.

In addition, support for Kasich could mean throwing Wisconsin congressional districts to Trump, too. It’s unlikely Kasich will draw enough support to win any congressional district, although his planned visit to Wauwatosa on Wednesday would suggest he’s going to try for the fourth. However, if Kasich draws off enough voters, it could be the margin that swings the second and third congressional districts to Trump. Trump could end up winning four or five congressional districts and all of the delegates that go with them.

Coincidentally, Charlie Sykes interviewed John Kasich today and you can listen to the interview at the WTMJ website. Kasich basically defended his campaign by saying that it’s going to convention (still just a possibility) and that he’s never gotten more attention than he’s getting right now.

I think this is a video clip, I’m not sure, from that interview:
