Kasich has just announced they are pulling out of Indiana to give Cruz the path to victory there. Cruz camp has reciprocated and is pulling out of Oregon and New Mexico.

They should both pull out of the race and wait until the convention then. It would save millions of dollars if they did.

It's hilarious how socially inept the GOPe is...even if this won them Indiana, which it probably won't, the optics of this are just terrible. 100% this will backfire on them, like most of their fiendishly clever plans

Because Kasich, rightfully, told Rubio the fck right off because he wanted to win fair and square. He didn't want to tag team.

YES, that means Kasich will come to my state

But that is weird, because Cruz is polling well here... Or at least he was. Internals must be showing something different.

Ah, not the case. Cruz also pulled out. He only got 13% of the vote - well below average for him in what amounted to a three-way race. If Trump doesn't have enough of a base of support to win a two-man race, that's his problem.

Believe me, the optics of this are terrible. But I ain't even mad...just exposing the GOP for what it is even more, which is what I want

Optics aren't terrible, actually. I demonstrates willingness to compromise and recognition of reality. If anything it aims to improve party unity. It only looks bad to you because it hurts Trump, and obviously anything that hurts Trump isn't just bad - it's cheating, because obviously Trump only loses when he is cheated.

He was doing well there, yes. But Indiana has far more delegates and is winner take all, both statewide and in congressional districts. New Mexico is proportional. He'll still hit 15% and nab some delegates, but he'll likely rob Trump of a win. It's a win-win for him.

It is decided, then: I will vote Kasich in NM. I even have a Kasich bumper sticker XD

U r truly delusional if you think that this promotes party unity. Even if Trump couldn't beat either of them head to head (which I reject), even if Trump really only has a solid base of 40%, the two guys with smaller bases uniting to cut out the plurality is NOT party unity lmao

He can, and is, being stopped. He's basically already admitted he loses at second ballot. It's going to convention. And since Trump is utterly inept at the delegate game, he's going to lose.

Maybe he only won 13% because he looks like a cross between a melting wax sculpture and a B-list actor

Please never become a political consultant.

This is not a brilliant political masterstroke, it's a Hail Mary driven by desperation. I doubt it will work. The Fox Poll had Trump beating Cruz head to head in Indiana before Cruz tried to win this way.

And sorry, try to convince yourself all you want but the optics of this are terrible--and deep down you know I'm right about this (and everything else)

I doubt it's going to convention. Teflon Don is pushing 50 in California...I knew there was still some hope for my second home state.

But the fact that you think a convention is even a remotely good or sane idea is telling. Make no mistake, you do that and the party is finished.

So far Reince has actually been relatively fair to Trump (far more than I would've expected at least) so there's actually a chance that he might.

He's 100% against it privately...most of the top GOP brass has been annoyed with Cruz and Kasich for a while. They don't like Trump but they see the writing on the wall
