Ted Cruz told CNN this morning that John Kasich staying in the race only helps Donald Trump. Otherwise it doesn’t make sense, as Cruz points out, because it’s now mathematically impossible for Kasich to win.
As I’ve pointed out this morning, Cruz is absolutely right. The person most helped by Kasich staying in the race is Trump. He will likely continue to split votes with Cruz which will only give The Donald more victories.
Now it is possible he can syphon enough votes to keep Trump from winning outright, but that’s a huge gamble considering how poorly he’s done up to this point. As Cruz points out, Kasich had lost 20 states before winning his home state of Ohio last night.
Kasich needs to get out and let Cruz go mano a mano with Trump.
