Donald Trump and Ted Cruz actually agreed on something earlier this week when both of them advised John Kasich to get out of the race. Trump has said to his supporters and on an interview with CNN that Kasich is, “taking my voters.” On the other side, Cruz has said in an interview on Hannity that, “a vote for John Kasich is a vote for Donald Trump.” John Kasich responded to Trump with a smirk on his face when he spoke to his supporters by saying, “he’s right, I am taking his votes.” Kasich has shown no sign of giving up, he clearly and truly believes that he can win the nomination at the increasingly possible contested convention. Trump and Cruz obviously are not showing any fear of Kasich in the public eye with him so far behind, but you have to keep in mind that Kasich is in their heads for sure. Most likely in the back of their minds is the looming fear that Kasich could swoop in at the convention and steal the nomination from them if he stays in the race, and that’s why they want him out. Both of the front runners want to eliminate the small but potential threat at the source, so they can focus on attacking one another. If Kasich stays in the race, it will continue to complicate things for Trump and Cruz because they know they will have to continue to worry about him instead of putting all their resources and energy into their main rival. If they don’t give him a thought, Kasich could slip under the radar and become a larger threat. Right now from a broad view, it appears Kasich is just playing spoiler, but he wouldn’t stay in the race if he really believed he couldn’t win. So Donald Trump and Ted Cruz better be on the look out, because Kasich is in their side view mirror that states “objects in mirror may be closer than they appear” and he’s not going anywhere.
