Poll Context: It looks increasingly likely that the GOP nomination will go to a contested convention so who will the GOP ‘Elite’ promote. They say they are impartial but does anyone really believe that? John Kasich says,
“I don’t think there’d be smoke-filled rooms because they don’t allow smoking in the hotels in Cleveland,” he joked. “I don’t think that will be the case.”Kasich said if the GOP nomination isn’t decided before July, a contested convention would help young people learn about the political process.
“You know, with the convention, people are like, ‘Oh my goodness, what would that mean?’” he said. “What it would mean, I think, is that our kids would start learning about how we pick a president. They might learn a little bit about the history of presidents, you know. It would kind of be a good thing.”
“When you go to something like that, the delegates always get serious about who it is that would be the best president of the United States,” he said. “It’s important that we come out of something like that with a sense of fairness.”
So John Kasich calls for fairness in the nomination process despite having only won one state to Trump who has won in 18 states, out of a total of 30 primaries, but what will the party elite push for and would they prefer see Hillary as president than Donald Trump?
