Cruz-Kasich tag team gets rolling as neocons blue sky a third party
by Kurt Nimmo, Infowars:
Ignoring polls, John Weaver of the Kasich campaign said on Sunday Donald Trump is not favored by Republicans.
“Donald Trump doesn’t have the support of a majority of Republicans—not even close, but he currently does have almost half the delegates because he’s benefited from the existing primary system,” said Weaver. “Our goal is to have an open convention in Cleveland, where we are confident a candidate capable of uniting the Party and winning in November will emerge as the nominee. Due to the fact that the Indiana primary is winner-take-all statewide and by congressional district, keeping Trump from winning a plurality in Indiana is critical to keeping him under 1,237 bound delegates before Cleveland. We are very comfortable with our delegate position in Indiana already, and given the current dynamics of the primary there, we will shift our campaign’s resources West and give the Cruz campaign a clear path in Indiana.”
The anti-Trump saboteurs are placing most of their chips on the May 3 contest in Indiana and parceling out others in the West. “Our campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico, and we would hope that allies of both campaigns would follow our lead,” Cruz campaign manager Jeff Roe said on Saturday.
By the Numbers
Indiana has an open primary. Voters are not required to register with a party, but state statutes stipulate that citizens vote in the primary of the party they have voted for most often in the past, a requirement that is difficult if not impossible to enforce.
On Monday, Trump weighed in on the Cruz-Kasich tag team effort. “Did you see the news today, where they band together? Where they collude? It’s collusion,” Trump told his supporters at a rally in Warwick, Rhode Island, where he enjoys a 29.3% spread.
