    Rubio just dropped out of the race after losing Florida - how long until Cruz and Kasich follow?

    And then there were three......Kasich is next I assume.

    I hope Cruz will ask Rubio to join forces to challenge Trump.

      Not likely,they have had at each other and Cruz's support is anti-establishment.Rubio has been bought lock stock and barrel by the establishment. I don't believe anything he says.Pick Rubio as VP now? Better Fiorina than Rubio. Anti estab.

    Neither is willing to accept Trump as the nominee. We may have a contested convention. I realize you like Trump, but anyone who divides the races  in America as much as  Obama  has is not suitable to become the next president of the United States. Cruz is a fighter, and I'm glad of it.  Mark my words.
    BTW, I commented on one of your hubs. Did you receive it?

      Theonly chance Cruz has of winning is win the primary&beat Trump there.If it goes to a brokered convention there is no way the establishment will pick Cruz(orTrump they hate him more than Trump)or they'd have teamed with him to beat Trump

      I've seen the news rhetoric about Cruz, but I'm pretty sure they don't hate him that badly. Cruz is non-establishment---supposedly---but he would work with congress, unlike Trump who will abuse his executive powers like Obama does.

      I loveCruz but if the estab.would do anything to keep Trump out backing Cruz from the beginning was a no brainer,they didn't,even now,were Kasich(estab guy)out of the race allhis vote(&the ex-Rubio vote)would go to Cruz

      assuring him of repeated victories over Trump. If Trump wins a plurality - with Kasich and Cruz splitting the vote - he walks off with the lion's share of the delegates.  And the nomination.

    This is just another distraction during the campaign so that the candidates won't have to talk about their Record, their Plans, and their Solutions.
    Time is running out, and so far it look like a drive by shooting, or a lion stalking their suspected wounded prey.

    Kasich is just a spoiler, who won't take any votes away from Trump, but will take away from Cruz. The republican party heads are being to look like the Repugnant Party.

    We know little to nothing about either of these two candidates as they spent most of their time bad mouthing Trump.

    He was a commentator on Fox News Channel, hosting Heartland with John Kasich from 2001 to 2007. He also worked as an investment banker, a managing director of Lehman Brothers' Columbus, Ohio, office.

    Did you know these two facts about Kasich.
    Certainly, his commentator career is not a plus, and his investment banker career doesn't give him any credibility except as one of the many bankers that melted the economy in 2008, and still today. So what is he going to do about the uncontrollable financial industry?

    Ted Cruz
    Cruz began campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination in March 2015. Like Barack Obama when he ran for the presidency, he has spent more time, since he began a first time senator in 2012, on his campaign than in his elected position of senator.
    After graduating from Princeton, Cruz attended Harvard Law School, graduating magna cum laude in 1995 with a Juris Doctor degree
    This sounds a lot like Bill Clinton, and the congress is filled with lawyers, and ironically we have some of the worst laws from them, and some really pathetic Supreme Court decisions. Don't take my word, check it out yourself, not you specifically Ralph, but anyone that doubts it.
    --
    The campaign is half over and all we know about Cruz is that he really doesn't like Trump.

    Once again, as usual the Loyal Party voters of both parties follow the herd, as opposed to making their own decisions on who should be president of the US.

    Party loyalty treats the Congress and the Presidency as if it were the local school sports team. Wait until next year is their mantra. The difference is that when the team loses, no matter who is at fault, we the people lose.
    And when one party wins the presidency, the voters of the other party will have no presidential representation for the next four years.
    The government s make a final determination on Hillary's email etc, and the repub s do the same with Trump.

      All you posted are true. The important information everyone both Republican and Democrats need to know is that system is rigged. Both parties are beholding to the same group of power elites. They control the money and the politicians...

      Thanks
      Now can the loyal party voter see that truth.
      Probably not.

      Yes, Jack, perhaps that explains why Soros Associate Gives $200000 To Pro-Kasich Super PAC. Same group of power elites? If only we could see what goes on behind closed doors.

    I think it was dirty politics for Kasich to stay in this long. He's clearly not a favorite anywhere outside of Ohio (a state with a history of ballot-box stuffing and other voter fraud mind you). So he's clearly just a tool to stop the popular candidate and not a serious contender. Cruz has no appeal to anyone aside of big donors, a few old party loyalists, some religious zealots and, apparently, Texas where nearly everyone is an idiot who bleeds oil.

      Dirty Politics? isn't that redundant? I mean have you ever even heard anyone use the term clean politics?
      Dirty and Politics go together like
      love&marriage, a horse&carriage, This I tell you brother, You can't have one without the other!

      I'd like to see Kasich step down so the question of Trump versus Cruz could finally be decided by the voters.  If Kasich stays into until the end, we'll never know who would win in head to head contests

    I'd like to see Kasich drop out and let Trump and Cruz go head to head and let the voters decide

      Never happen, Kasich is establishment's last card to play to throw this primary into a brokered election so they can dump Cruz and Trump.
