How come nobody is talking about Kasich? He is our best bet.

He's too sane for the republican party. Too civilized.

You're right, Willtell! Kasich is way too sane for this party. But he is also way too sane for the Democratic Party as well if that group doesn't realize the folly of nominating Clinton, who would give us four more years of the traitorous incompetent weakling, Obama, or the socialist and near communist, Sanders, who would bankrupt the country.

So gutting his home state of jobs with TPP is sane? Depriving voters of their choice is sane? Look at his record in his home state, not at his debate tactics. He smeared parents and teachers in his home state that opposed Common Core. He used obscure rules to prevent a popular Libertarian from running against him because he might have beaten Kasich. That speaks more to corruption than sanity.

The reason nobody is talking about Kasich is because he's 1-26 in states' primaries and caucuses. That record is AWFUL!! His only win is in his home state which is a minimal accomplishment. Besides that, he voted for NAFTA which destroyed our manufacturing jobs. He claims to have been part of the balanced budget in the 90s while in Congress, but he leaves out the part that he stole from Social Security to do it. That is NOT cool at all and it certainly isn't an accomplishment.

Not only did Kasich not learn from his dreadful support of NAFTA that destroyed American jobs but now he's doubling down on that awful decision by supporting TPP. This man is an enemy of the working class in America.

Trump is the only one that can defeat Hillary. Kasich is only staying in the race in hopes of a brokered convention where he hopes the the voters voices will be ignored. Anybody that stays in a race with the hopes that the voters voices will be ignored is supporting a dictatorship where the people lose their voice.

Yes, most politicians have all voted for something some of us are against.

Are you sure Trump is the only one who can beat Hillary? Lately, I've been hearing a lot of this on ATS and frankly, I think its complete BS.

Most Kasich vs Hillary polls show him winning. Only slightly.

www.realclearpolitics.com...

Clearly if its between the two. Its who IS AGAINST Hillary, and Whose IS WITH her.

Many voters would be displaced.

Lets stop with the whole "Only Trump can beat her."

His positions are ... for TPP ... strike one. That's a BIG issue for me. I don't vote based on whether someone can or can not beat Hillary. His position on TPP means he will not get my vote. No matter who his opponent would turn out to be. If he were the Republican candidate and Hillary were the Democrat candidate, I would vote 3rd party or write in. It's that simple. His policies are 180 degrees to what I believe in.

His only chance is a contested convention, which is possible, but unlikely.

That is true, but a contested convention is still possible and much more so after Kasich's victory in the Ohio winner take all Primary on Tuesday, March 15th.

Because he scapegoats immigrants, he is an egoist extreme, he incites and encourages violence, and he crushes the rights of free speech and assembly and rudely insults anyone who disagrees with him in any way. In addition he says he'll order military personnel to violate human rights by ordering them to kill the families of terrorists and indicates that they will do as they are ordered whether it constitutes a crime against humanity or violates international law. He has also said he will get rid of the birth right provision of the 14th amendment.

If the above is not enough, he is a zenophobic megalomaniac and racist.

It's very easy why no one is voting for him.... He is a Huuuuge Looooser. Giant snorefest and a lame individual. Next...

A snooze fest because the media talking heads haven't given him much air time or because he isn't as much fun or as humorous to watch as a former Reality T.V. star with the funny hair that looks like it was cut from the feathers of a turkey buzzard? The media folks are obsessed with ratings when they should be concerned about the problems facing the country.

Trump has nothing to offer at all except a fascist dictatorship and a giant ego with no knowledge of the issues, while Kasich offers solid executive experience and a thorough knowledge of all the issues including economic, domestic and military.

As an Ohioan, I can say that I like Kasich, but until you've lived here you have no clue about him.

He's just as divisive as any other Republican (or Democrat) candidate. Dems here hate him about as mush as Republicans hate Obama.

It's the "R" after his name.

He's a centrist, but unfortunately, he has no backbone. (Remember the SB5 fight?)

He has no chance.

Because he is like Paul and a few others, a lost cause.

Dem have it easy. They are Liberals and by that very idea they are more politically active.

GOP are conservatives, which means you need to get them fired up to get the numbers. The issue is that most of these people are carrer politicians. If they had been doing their job there would be no need to fire up the GOP base. Once fired up they don't want the people that have been in power any more because they have not done the job the GOP base wanted to do in the first place.

Trump, Carson and even Cruz (Becaue he is seen as an outsider.) fill this vision. Love him or hate him, Trump is a focal point of power. Carson never really had a chance. Even though I liked him, he didn't have the fire in his gut.

All the rest of he GOP came out fighting just like a politician. That killed them. The GOP base is not looking for a politician, they are looking for a leader. If one of the in power GOP politicians had grown a backbone this year or last election, Trump never would be in the race. They want someone to standup and say NO MORE and then back that up with deeds. Congress could have done that last year when the GOP got in. They could have held the line and let the country grind to a halt, they choose to blink instead.

The main reason Trump came into prominence is ironically a factor that had nothing to do with the G.O.P.! It was the failed policies of democratic President Obama that created the awful conditions that allowed a demagogue like Trump to appeal to a disgruntled and disappointed electorate with his brand of racism, scapegoating and divisive fear together with false promises to make America great again.

Trump only seeks to feed his own gargantuan ego and he doesn't give a whit about anything else.

I'm for Kasich because he IS a centrist and would govern accordingly if elected. I'm tired of extremists from the left like Obama, Clinton, and Sanders, and I despise demagogues and racist zenophobic megalonanic would be dictators from the right like Trump. It is time to restore sanity and stop adoring celebrities and media darlings who raise the T.V. ratings of the talking head fools who fill our air waves with their own brand of bull!

That is a really good point, and an important one for voters to remember.
