Stop Trump Movement Just Became the Cru-sich Alliance

Governor Kasich and Senator Cruz have teamed up to stop Trump in several states. It isn’t likely to work. An alliance of liberal Kasich and conservative Cruz is unnatural and won’t last.

Both believe that Trump cannot win in a general election and he will guarantee a loss of the Senate and possibly the House. All early polls do show that will be the case.

Governor John Kasich of Ohio and Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined forces to keep Trump from reaching the 1237 and to keep him as far away from it as possible. It’s a plan that could backfire.

It’s hard to see how it works. Will Kasich voters forget to vote for him in Indiana while Cruz voters forget to vote in New Mexico and Oregon?

The Wall Street Journal claims they have formed an alliance and each will concentrate on the state delegates they can win, Cruz in Indiana and Kasich in Oregon and New Mexico.

It’s not simply to stop Trump, it’s so they can win. It’s unlikely Trump could win if it goes to a second ballot. About a third of the party won’t vote for him under any circumstances and another 30% prefer another candidate.

“Having Donald Trump at the top of the ticket in November would be a sure disaster for Republicans. Not only would Trump get blown out by Clinton or Sanders, but having him as our nominee would set the party back a generation,” the statement on Ted Cruz’s website said.

Cruz’s statement said his campaign would “clear the path” for Kasich in Oregon and New Mexico.

After that, they will resume their competition, Cruz’s statement said.

Prior to this and up until last week, Cruz rejected coordinating anti-Trump efforts with Kasich.

Trump had a fit.

There are 15 states left and five are in the Northeast which Trump has sewn up. Cruz and Kasich have abandoned those five states.

Can Cruz and Kasich stop the reality star?

Kasich’s campaign sent out a tweet that said, “We will shift our campaign’s resources West and give the Cruz campaign a clear path in Indiana.”

Kasich’s statement explained his focus on Oregion and New Mexico, saying both states are “structurally similar to the Northeast politically, where Gov. Kasich is performing well.”

  1. I thought Trump said it best,

    “It is sad that two grown politicians have to collude against one person who has only been a politician for ten months in order to try and stop that person from getting the Republican nomination.

    Senator Cruz has done very poorly and after his New York performance, which was a total disaster, he is in free fall and as everyone has seen, he does not react well under pressure. Also, approximately 80% of the Republican Party is against him. Governor Kasich, who has only won 1 state out of 41, in other words, he is 1 for 41 and he is not even doing as well as other candidates who could have stubbornly stayed in the race like him but chose not to do so. Marco Rubio, as an example, has more delegates than Kasich and yet suspended his campaign one month ago. Others, likewise, have done much better than Kasich, who would get slaughtered by Hillary Clinton once the negative ads against him begin. 85% of Republican voters are against Kasich.

    Collusion is often illegal in many other industries and yet these two Washington insiders have had to revert to collusion in order to stay alive. They are mathematically dead and this act only shows, as puppets of donors and special interests, how truly weak they and their campaigns are. I have brought millions of voters into the Republican primary system and have received many millions of votes more than Cruz or Kasich. Additionally, I am far ahead of both candidates with delegates and would be receiving in excess of 60% of the vote except for the fact that there were so many candidates running against me.

    Because of me, everyone now sees that the Republican primary system is totally rigged. When two candidates who have no path to victory get together to stop a candidate who is expanding the party by millions of voters, (all of whom will drop out if I am not in the race) it is yet another example of everything that is wrong in Washington and our political system. This horrible act of desperation, from two campaigns who have totally failed, makes me even more determined, for the good of the Republican Party and our country, to prevail!”

  2. They’re desperate but this isn’t corrupt. It’s what happens with voting when consensus can’t be reached.

    Trump is working with McConnell to “steal” delegates.
