In a very clear attempt to try to deny Trump the nomination, Cruz and Kasich announced that they will be working together to try to stay out of each others way in states that they themselves are not doing well enough in to compete with Trump. Cruz in a release stated he would be investing substantial resources into Indiana to try to beat Trump, but will stay out of Oregon and New Mexico where Kasich is doing better than Cruz is in the hopes that Kasich will beat Trump there.... Kasich then made a release substantiating Cruz, saying that Kasich will pull out of Indiana and cede it to Cruz to stay out of Cruz's way, and will in turn invest heavily in Washington and Oregon to try to beat trump there.

The agreement though holds no weight in NE states that are next in line to vote, where Trump is likely to dominate and where Cruz is likely to become mathematically eliminated from winning the nomination. The agreement also doesnt hold any weight in states that come after Washington and Oregon vote, meaning that Cruz and Kasich have really only agreed to stay out of each other's way in 3 of the remaining 15 primaries.

A 2nd place finisher and a 3rd place finisher Haven't worked together so hard to deny the nomination to a 1st place finisher since John Quincy Adams teamed up with Henry Clay to deny Andrew Jackson the presidency back in 1825..... More important than historical precedent that this primary sets though is the question of whether or not this will even work.... Cruz is only a few hairs behind Trump in Indiana where support from Kasich would give him the win in that state, and states on the West Coast that are far more liberal and far less religious than the midwest will likely be better territory for Kasich to win than Cruz, so this agreement could feasibly work out in denying Trump the nomination until California votes.

Would work better if both campaigns were more discreet about the deal. Anyways, it seems too little too late to stop the Trump Train from attaining the GOP nomination

Last time that deal was made, someone dropped out of the race (Florida).

The thing I find the most amusing is they assume that because Kasich suddenly stops campaigning in Indiana that Kasich's supporters will suddenly vote for Cruz in droves. Not going to happen. If anything they are losing their own supporters in the way of Donald Trump because of this stunt.

Most of us ACTUAL conservatives are for Cruz and not Trump for good reason. Trump is a phony. He has broke many rules in his time to get what he wants, so what the F*** does it matter if someone turns the table on him?

He hasn't played fair this entire time lying, cheating, and stealing the Republican party away from their goal. Instead he has given conservatives all across this country a false hope with a big arrogant mouth that lacks substance. If you think Trump will not fall think again. He will fall and he will be stopped along with his fake conservative supporters.

The thing is they dont need supporters to switch 'in droves'. Trump is only ahead of Cruz by 6%, and Kasich has 20% of the vote. Kasich only needs a third of his followers in Indiana to support Cruz for Trump to lose, and you can bet that there are at least 1/3rd of Kasich's supporters who would be okay with doing such a thing if it helps not make Trump the nominee

This analysis ignores the many Cruz supporters that value Cruz as an "Outsider"

If he turns that support away by publicly drawing an alliance with establishment Kasich, much of that support might revolt and actually go to Trump as the last remaining outsider, possibly producing a catastrophic loss of base support for Cruz. Most people agree this decision to publicly draw an alliance is a terrible political mistake for Cruz.

Most Cruz voters including myself realize why he is doing what he is doing. Kind of like when Trump teamed up with Rubio on Cruz.

you mean the ones elected in the past 16 years?

No, I am talking about the voters. The Generation X voters who again and again show how pathetic and useless they are to society. The ones who have put more debt on their children and grandchildren than any other generation because of how lazy, prideful, and greedy they are. The ones who for the most part live off of social security and use social programs the most. The ones who advise their children and grand children to rely off of the government instead of becoming self-sufficient. Generation X again and again has shown it is an embarrassment to society. At least here in America.

I am so glad that Cruz and Kasich are tactically this stupid.

And you are the genius? Haha. I guess a liberal like yourself would love to see a real conservative like Cruz fall because he is a threat to your political goals.

What a Haroush thing to say. Yea, I want to see conservatives fail - damn straight.
