Kasich: Trump ‘Probably Going to Win’ All Super Tuesday

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Republican presidential candidate Governor John Kasich (R-OH) said of the states voting on Super Tuesday that his rival Donald Trump is “probably going to win probably all of them.”

Jake Tapper said, “Well, I mean, no offense, but you haven’t won a contest, and it doesn’t look like you’re going to win any on Tuesday.”

Kasich said, “No. I think Trump’s probably going to win probably all of them. But you keep holding your own, and we have our campaign plan. I mean, everybody has to do it the way they want to do it. Our way of doing it — our campaign plan was ultimately to, you know, hold our own in some of these places, and we will, I expect. and then we’re going to head north. But at the end of the day, what changes this race is my ability to win in Ohio. And if any of these people can’t win their own states, they probably ought to get out. We ought to consolidate the race. In Ohio head to head, I beat Donald Trump by 18 points. Why is that? Why is it that I’m running even with Donald Trump in Ohio without making any real effort in Ohio? Let me also ask you this. Why am I beating Hillary Clinton by more than any other candidate in the race? Is that because I’m not being combative enough? I take my positions, and I have strong positions, but I’m going to run my campaign the way I want to, not the way that some pundit wants me to do it so they can get more eyeballs. to be honest with you.”
