Will the RNC run 3 candidates Trump, Cruz & Kasich?
In 1836, the Whigs ran 4 candidates against the Democrats. The goal in 2016 may be to block the Democratic nominee from winning an electoral majority by running the Republican candidate in each state most able to win there. If the Democratic candidate were held short of 270 electoral votes, the outright majority, then the House of Representatives would be asked to choose the president from the top three vote-getters, regardless of what party they are from. If the House stays under GOP control, it would almost certainly select a Republican as president.
But it make the Party look petty and ridiculous. Why run three candidates when one, Kasich, would probably win outright. And running three does not guarantee it will go to the House. There are more registered Dems and Independents than Republicans. You would basically be splitting the white guy vote three ways (although Kasich might get near Romney with women). It would be entertaining though.
Certainly don't want to look petty & ridiculous, that would be too revealing.
Kasich is better than Cruz, but he couldn't even beat Cruz, how would he do in the general election? 2 candidates in a gen election is a vote, but 3 in the election is one that contains a goat. For entertainm Clinton, Sanders, Trump,Cruz, Kasich
