    Isn't a vote for Kasich like throwing away the vote?

    The people of Ohio may feel a loyalty to fellow Kasich, but is it worth throwing your vote away? There is no way that Kasich should even still be in this race. Without him, and Rubio in the race, the voters will be making a real choice. Would Trump or Cruz have gotten those wasted votes?

    Not in the primary. If Kasich wins Ohio, it becomes more difficult for Trump to get the necessary delegates to secure the nomination before the convention. That means it's a brokered convention, and anything can happen.

      When you don't vote  the candidate whom you want to win, that's called throwing away your vote.

      Who says the person casting the vote for Kasich doesn't want him to win? By preventing Trump from getting the required delegates to secure the nomination, a brokered convention, where anyone might end up the nominee, means that vote isn't thrown away

    Brad....Here I go again~~asking a Question within a Question~ but this time it's because I simply cannot describe my frustrations with ALL of this (the campaign, the candidates (past & those hanging in there) the media,),,,,I'm literally fed up......I saw your question and I can't resist.

    Given my frame of mind at this time & taking a long hard LOOK at our options, I ask myself,  "Isn't voting for ANY one of them like throwing our Country away??"

    I'm really "impressed(?)" at the lovely things said about Rubio....now that he's dropped out!!   WTH??

      What was the appeal of Rubio? What does he offer anyone I wonder?

      I say that we have a broken convention, to go with a broken party. The republican candidates look like rich aunt grace's will gave all the money to her bastard child, and the rest of the children are contesting the will.

      Brad....That's what I call an awesome analogy.  I think I'm just gonna hang around on the street corners, like an orphan, until someone tells us who we currently belong to. Speaking of Aunt Grace, will the kids holler. "UNCLE!?"  I give up.
