As per The Washington Post, Donald Trump, on the eve of the important Republican New York Primary, is unworthy of the people who live in this this great city whose votes he courts.

Trump exemplifies, instead, Ponzi schemes like Trump University, crooked traders who specialized in Ponzi schemes like Bernie Madoff , and for phony values, appearance over substance, debt over cash, and gold paint over real gold.

This racist's sickening and rank xenophobia, in and of itself, should make him an outcast in the Big Apple where so many folks of diverse cultures and backgrounds try to live the American dream and adhere to American values.

Donald Trump's values are NOT America's values!

As per Market Watch, the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC Polls indicate that Hillary Clinton is continuing to become more and more unpopular among Democratic Party primary voters nationwide, although the huge lead in delegates she previously acquired will still result in her gaining the Democratic Party presidential nomination over Bernie Sanders.

This only increases the margin by which Republican moderate and centrist, John Kasich, would be able defeat the untrustworthy lying Hillary in the national election in November. He will be able to significantly eat into this eroding support in Clinton's own democratic base and covert Clinton votes into Kasich votes.

The R.N.C. and the Republican party need to give strong consideration to the above at their convention in Cleveland this coming July.

As per Fox News, Donald Trump now refers to the Democratic Party front runner as "Crooked Hillary".

While that title indeed does fit Clinton, this is really an true example of the "pot calling the kettle black."

By his own admission, Trump has frequently courted the favor of many politicians by giving them money because "it was good for business." And what about his many scams and con artist activities like Trump University and the Trump Modeling Agency whereby he acquired money from innocent people under false pretenses.

Pick your "crook" or pick your poison, however you like it. I say NO to both of them! And I say YES to Governor John Kasich of Ohio!.

Per CNN News, Bernie Sanders, who has long been a critic of Wall Street and large Wall Street banks, now questions whether Wall Street institutions are even necessary at all to maintain and increase wealth or to grow the American economy.

This sounds like a last minute desperate effort by the Bern to salvage what he can in the N.Y. Presidential Primary.

Wall Street banks employ a whole lot of people and they fuel the economy. These institutions grow the financial sector of the American stock market creating and stimulating the portfolios and hard earned retirement savings/IRA and 401K plans of many thousands of our senior citizens.

What is this rank socialist thinking if he is even thinking any more at all? The economists and financial experts have labeled the Bern's policies as unrealistic and unworkable! If these policies were to actually be implemented, many thousands would also lose their jobs, and retirement savings would be severely diminished. Moreover, the American economy would be driven into deep recession or worse!

As per the Washington Post, Hillary Clinton is now "totally beatable" in the national election this November per the latest polls, but NOT by either Trump or Cruz, both of whom will lose to her.

That should be a clear message to the party to nominate someone else at their convention this summer. It looks like lying Hillary Clinton has really lost favor with the American electorate overall and rightly so.

As Per Bloomberg politics, it is still possible John Kasich could be the compromise choice for the republican nomination for President if neither Trump nor Cruz reach majority prior to or after several ballots at a prospective contested convention in Cleveland this July.

While a long shot, the strategy is to combine good results in the remaining primaries after N.Y. in some Northeast and Mid West state conventions and primaries with a solid wooing of delegates on the convention floor to advance the argument that only Kasich is capable of defeating the likely democratic Party nominee, Hillary "ingenuous" Clinton who has seen a huge drop in popularity within her own base of support.

Polls do show that Kasich would beat Clinton while both Trump as well as Cruz would be defeated by her because democratic voters would have an excuse to turn away from a candidate they do not trust to one whom they could trust, i.e. John Kasich.

The above does requires a lot to break just right for the Ohio governor. But although the odds are against it, this scenario is not impossible in a bizarre election year such as this one has been!

Per Bloomberg Politics,the Republican Party is now also worried that if Trump is nominated in July at their convention, they will not only lose the national election against Clinton, but they will also lose both the House as well as the Senate when Trump takes the entire party down to defeat with him in November. Trump was called an ignorant vengeful racist on Good Morning Joe by a former GOP candidate, George Patacki.

One more good reason for the party to nominate the only person who would beat Clinton, Gov. John Kasich!

Paul Manafort, Trump's top lobbying aide, has an anti Israel record according to Ted Cruz and as per, Politico magazine.

While Cruz doesn't impress me as a source given his own lack of veracity ,this statement does have credibility. Trump himself has always appeared to have a distinct anti Israel bias given his neutrality on the Palistinian issue and the endorsement he only reluctantly rejected from David Duke. And only after a took a firestorm of criticism for not repudiating same right way!

Per Fox News, Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell says he is optimistic the Republican National Convention in July will go at least to a second ballot, and he sees an increasing likelihood of an open and contested convention therefore actually becoming a reality.

This statement appears to be an implied jab and criticism of Donald Trump by the Kentucky Republican given Trump's own opposition to such a contested convention. Trump knows full well that such an eventuality could potentially deny him the nomination after all.

Once again we see just how unacceptable Trump has become to prominent members of his own party. He should be equally unacceptable to the American people as well.

As per The New York Post, Hillary Clinton leads Bernie Sanders just prior to the opening of polls by a large 55% to 40% margin in the N.Y. Democratic Presidential Primary.
Clinton former N.Y. Senator, and front runner for the Democratic Party presidential nomination, is expected to do well in her adopted state, but she is downplaying her lead so as to avoid disappointment should Sanders manage to do better than the polls indicate.

Nationally Sanders is only 2% behind Clinton overall in the popular vote, but the front runner still has a huge lead in delegates that Sanders will likely be unable to overcome as Hillary moves closer to the nomination.

There are many problems with Clinton and her lack of trustworthiness is one of the most troublesome of these, but the Sanders brand of Robin Hood socialism would be an economic horror story for the country and Clinton is the better candidate between the two of them. Unfortunately, neither one is the person America needs to lead us to a better tomorrow.

Of all the remaining presidential candidates, I believe Governor John Kasich, a Republican moderate, is by far America's best bet to move forward as a nation.

The latest national Polls, interestingly enough, indicate that the presidential races in both parties are narrowing late in the primary and delegate selection process.

Ted Cruz has nearly caught up with Donald Trump among Republican voters nationally and is closing in on the delegate count as well. Since neither one of them looks likely to reach majority prior to the Republican Convention this Summer, the possibility remains wide open for an alternative compromise candidate to emerge, however slim that possibility appears to be at the present time.

Many voters have not yet solidified their choices in a very unstable political environment suggesting that almost anything can still happen!

Per the Tribune, Donald Trump has just pulled off yet another buffoon like gaffe when he referred to the 9/11 Terrorist attack on the Twin Towers in New York as the "7/11"' attack, thus confusing one of America's greatest tragedies with a convenience store.

One could just pass this gaffe off as a slip of the tongue from someone else, but we are talking about "The Donald" where a gaffe is almost what we have come to expect from him!

Per MSNBC, although Donald Trump still leads in votes among the republican electorate nationally, It is Governor Kasich who has made the most gains overall and this development should be a boost for the governor as primary and state delegate conventions continue on toward the convention in July.

Kasich plans to fight on and well he should. This race isn't over yet. Not by a long shot!

Per a recent NBC News Wall Street National Poll just conducted of registered republican and democratic voters, 68% would not support Donald Trump, 58% would not support Hillary Clinton, and 61% would not support Ted Cruz for President.

What a sad state of affairs and what a sad reflection of nearly the entire current crop of candidates running for the highest office in our land.

And who can doubt the accuracy of these polls as all three of the above said candidates, each in their own way, are unfit to be President of the United States.

The Poll did not address Bernie Sanders or John Kasich because those two candidates could expect the voters who favor them to also support and stand behind them. Both believe in their message and are sincere in the delivery of same.

But Sanders is a Robin Hood socialist with policies that would send the economy into deep recession and result in failed small businesses and huge lay offs attended by much unemployment. At the same time, the Bern would make a shambles of the incentive and free enterprise spirit upon which America was built.

John Kasich, on the other hand, is a moderate, who would govern from the center rather than from the far left, and his policies would benefit both the economy of our country as well as our national defense and international relationships.

Of all the remaining candidates, Governor Kasich simply offers America it's brightest future and therefore he is the candidate of choice for President!

As per Vox News, John Kasich could still help to "Dump the Trump" by staying in the race so as to prevent "The Donald" from getting more than 50% of the votes in those primaries in the Northeast where 50% would give Trump all of the delegates available in that state.

Kasich has more appeal in the Northeast and Mid West than Trump and Cruz due to the more moderate voters in these regions.

Since N.Y. is Trump's home turf, Kasich will probably not fare very well in the N.Y Republican Primary, and Trump will probably wind up with all the available delegates there, especially now that Cruz has ruined his own chances in the Big Apple with his unpopular "N.Y.Values Speech."

a reply to: CrazyWater:

As per the Chcago Tribune, the expected Trump victory in the New York Republican Primary where he will take all or most of the delegates due to an expected more than 50% popular vote count will not change the current parameters of the election.

Kasich could actually come in second in this primary due to the relative unfavorable publicity that Cruz has earned in the Big Apple after his N.Y. Values speech and the Ohio governor could use the second place finish in New York as an impetus toward better results in the next primaries in more favorable terrain.

Meanwhile Cruz will continue to scoop up more delegates in forthcoming state delegate conventions as he has done to date with a superior organization that Trump seems unable to match.

All of the above factors should aid the ongoing effort to stop Trump from reaching majority in the delegate count prior to what likely will be a brokered contested Republican National Convention in Cleveland this Summer.

As per the Miami Herald, Republican Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell says he wants the party to nominate someone who can win in November and expressed his opinion that fellow republicans senators would drop Donald Trump like a "hot rock" rather than permit him to bring them down with him in an electoral landslide defeat in November.

McConnell again implied that he against Trump being nominated and that he believed a brokered Republican National Convention in July was likely.

Per Politico Magazine, Trump's campaign has accused Cruz of bribing delegates and Cruz fired back at Trump. The two of them continue to savage each other and all of this inures to Kasich's benefit who wants to see Trump and Cruz slow each other down enough so that nether one can reach delegate majority before the convention. That is the scenario that must continueplay out to give the Ohio governor a chance at winning the Republican Presidential nomination at a projected contested Republican National Convention on a distant ballot in Cleveland this Summer.
