Re: 2016 US Elections: Discuss and Debate
That said, I don't think Trump's path is clear now. With Rubio dropping out and his team telling supporters to back Cruz, there could be a significant shift in support for Cruz, while I don't think that Trump will get many of the Rubio supporters. At the same time, the establishment lost their only horse left in the race. After trying and failing to make Cruz kiss their ring (not literally), they have the choice to either back him or back Trump. Now we're seeing much more support from the establishment republicans who don't want Cruz in office, but who see him as the lesser of two evils.
Yeah, my most conservative friend on Facebook has been very high on Rubio, and he's not switched to Cruz. He's been saying "Never Trump" at the end of every post so he's going with the best path to that. I can't imagine he'd go Hillary, but we'll see what happens if Trump gets it.
I still like Kasich. Think he'd be a good choice. If Trump was reasonable, I think he'd be a great VP too. He has the experience to help Trump along, but Kasich said he'd never join a Trump ticket. Kasich could help the GOP win Ohio, which would be a key state.
