Cruz and Kasich team up against Trump


04/25/2016


Applicants for Presidency from the Republican party Ted Cruz and John Kasich announced that they are entering into a coalition to prevent leader of the party race Donald Trump from becoming the official candidate for the US presidency. Their decision was explained by the fact that Trump would not be a worthy adversary to any of the Democratic candidates. Above that, his nomination could literally ruin the party. The hero of all these amazing events called Cruz and Kasich’s unexpected partnership recognition of the hopelessness of their situation.

On Sunday, websites of the two candidates for the US presidency from the Republicans - Ted Cruz (number 2) and John Kasich (number 3) – posted two unexpected reports. The the two politicians will now coordinate their efforts with a single purpose - to prevent the leader of the race Donald Trump from getting officially elected presidential candidate of the Republicans. In accordance with the agreement, Ted Cruz will curtail his campaign in the states of Oregon and New Mexico, where Mr. Kasich is supported the most. Mr. Kasich, in turn, will clear Mr. Cruz’s road in Indiana, where the latter has highest chances. 

"The nomination of Donald Trump's official presidential candidate of the Republican Party in November will be the absolute disaster for the Republicans. Trump will not only be literally swept away by Clinton or Sanders. The very fact that he is an official presidential candidate will throw a party a generation back," - said Jeff Roe, head of the electoral headquarters of Mr. Cruz. In turn, John Kasich’s chief strategist of the election campaign John Weaver acknowledged that now all the other Republican candidates want not victory, but to stop Donald Trump. "Our goal is an open the congress (congress at which none of the candidates has absolute majority) in Cleveland, during which may appear a new candidate, that can unite the party and win in November."

It must be said that Cruz and Kasich’s partnership looks very strange even with all the explanations. On many issues, the two candidates for the position are so different that their stay in the one party seems almost random. That is why observers consider their decision to cooperate as a triumph of responsibility or the apotheosis of helplessness. 

Donald Trump reacted exactly the same: "Cruz and Kasich are mathematical corpses, they are in despair. I do not think that their donors and support groups are excited about what they are doing. "

It is unclear how effective Cruz and Kasich’s solution is. Both candidates have openly called to vote for each other in the states where they stop the fight. "At this late stage, it is unclear how effective is all this, especially in the absence of more detailed and specific recommendations from the campaign headquarters" - writes The New York Times. And according to experts of Politico, this decision may simply be too late.
