Kasich on Trump and Ohio

“There will be sections he will win because people are angry, frustrated and haven’t heard any answers. But I still think it’s difficult if you are dividing to be able to win Ohio. I think it’s really, really difficult.”–Governor John Kasich (R-Ohio).

538’s Now-cast give Trump a 16.4% chance to win the state at the moment.

    So, I’m thinking Kasich’s GOTV won’t be swinging into action to help Trump out in Ohio. Fortunately for Trump Ohio is not, and never has been, important to Republicans running for president.

    Maine! That’s the place.
