Kasich: ‘I Don’t Necessarily Believe’ Trump’s Poll Numbers

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Republican presidential candidate Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) said he does not believe the polls favoring his opponent Donald Trump and pointed to a crowd’s reaction at a rally in Ohio as evidence.

When asked if he believes the poll showing Trump leading Kasich said, “He came to Ohio and had a big crowd, Thousands of people, and ten minutes into it, you know, the crowd was leaving, and about half the crowd by the end of his experience. I think people are very concerned about the current state of affairs, they want change. They absolutely want somebody that is going to shake it up, which I’ve done all of my life by balancing the federal budget and the budget in Ohio. But they also want somebody that has a real plan to move this country forward economically and, of course, in the area of national security and foreign policy. So do I believe them? No, I don’t necessarily believe what I see because it’s not a poll on likely voters.”
