John Kasich is delusional and this pretty much proves it.
After his primary win in his home stat of Ohio last night, Kasich is riding on a cloud of fantasy. He still thinks he can win the Republican nomination, which is now mathematically impossible. What that means is that Kasich is planning on stealing the nomination from Trump at a contested convention in August.
This is the now the 3rd candidate threatening this after Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz did it as well.
Gov. John Kasich’s campaign is plotting to snatch the Republican nomination at a contested convention in Cleveland in August.
Kasich campaign chief strategist John Weaver blasted out a strategy memo during Kasich’s Ohio victory speech that made clear that Kasich will seek to win the nomination at a contested convention. “No candidate will win 1237 delegates,” Weaver said in the memo.
But Trump’s son was quick to point our the flaw in Kasich’s memo, thus exposing a contested convention plot.
Mathematically it is statistically impossible for Kasich to get to 1237 – he would need 112% of the remaining delegates to be the nominee!

Ohio governor Kasich defeated Donald Trump in the Ohio primary Tuesday night, with Kasich grabbing 43.4 percent of the vote to Trump’s 36.5 percent, with 28 percent of the precincts reporting.
“This is all I got,” Kasich said in his Ohio victory speech. “We are going to go all the way to Cleveland and secure the Republican nomination.”
On the topic of a contested convention, Kasich said in the Fox News Republican debate in Detroit that “We are already there.”
Whatever they’re up to, the GOP needs to stop trying to ruin the party and get behind Trump and take this thing to the White House. It’s unbelievable that they think they have a chance.
