Just when it seems things can’t get much worse for Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s crusade to become president—including getting clobbered by Donald Trump in  his home community of McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania last week—new polling of Ohioans show they want their term-limited leader to end it.

Results Monday from the latest Public Policy Polling, shows Buckeye Stateers “are getting sick of John Kasich’s Presidential campaign” with only 38 percent wanting him to stay in the race. Nearly half [49%] think it’s time for him to drop out.

Buckeyes To Kasich: Get Out

“Those numbers have shifted substantially from early March […]

Many people need pharmaceutical drugs to survive. It’s not a choice. If they don’t get the medication they need, they will die. But even in the United States, the richest country on the planet, the wealthiest nation in the history of human civilization, many are unable to afford the medication they need. So they go without. And eventually, they die.

That’s the sobering reality and the shameful fact of the health care situation in America. Obviously there is progress to be made, and lives at stake.

So now, Ohio is one of two states in the country […]

The one-time Catholic boy from Mckees Rocks, Pennsylvania, who as a youth wanted to be a priest but found as an adult that politics is more fun and lucrative, plans to extend his political career from Governor of Ohio to Republican presidential nominee this year by violating the eighth of the Ten Commandments.

As scripture says, the Lord, disguised as a burning bush, told the Israelites, through stone tablets written on Mount Sinai and delivered by Moses, “Thou shalt not steal.”

But unlike John Kasich this year, the Lord isn’t trailing league leading Donald Trump or Ted Cruz, […]

On Friday ultra-conservative Indiana Gov. Mike Pence broke to endorse Texas Sen. Ted Cruz—calling him a “principled conservative”—over his neighboring hard-right conservative governor, John Kasich.

At stake in next Tuesday’s Indiana primary are 57 delegates and maybe the Republican nomination for president. The collaborative fiasco between Camp Cruz and Camp Kasich, to relinquish Indiana to Cruz and western states like Oregon and New Mexico to Kasich, fell apart shortly after it was announced last Sunday. John Kasich helped it fall apart by refusing to advise his supporters to vote for Cruz in order to keep Donald Trump from winning. Conventional […]

This week’s winner in the “Even right-wingers can be right every so often award” is Ann Coulter for her description of John Kaisch:

“ …the spitting image of a homeless man. He’s got the slouch, the facial tics, and a strange way of bouncing his head and looking around that makes you want to cross the street to avoid him. It looks like he cuts his own hair, and his suits are Ralph Nader cast-offs. He wolfs down food like a street person, has a hair-trigger temper, and rants about religion in a way that only he can understand. “

He’s running fourth in a three-candidate Republican race for president, so what else can go wrong for Ohio Gov. John Kasich? Lots, actually.

Even though he’s still one of three active candidates, he’s fourth in the delegate count behind Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who dropped out March 15 following the drubbing Donald Trump delivered him in his home state.

Soldiering on despite the shellacking he took from Trump in five states eastern states Tuesday, John Kasich, who even lost his hometown of Mckees Rocks, Pennsylvania, is holding fast to his fabulous thesis that he alone can unite Republicans and […]

John Kasich is running a presidential campaign, to put it loosely, without topsoil. His chaotic antics have so confused the gallery that even the Beacon Journal, which finds so much to like about the Ohio governor, has had to backtrack on its rationale for him to stay in the race. He’s better than the other two Republican contenders, the paper says, while praising his “knowledge and experience”. But it’s now had to factor in the metrics of his dismal performance on Tuesday in which he was pummeled to a base of clay in all five primary states.

His image was […]

After Cara Carleton “Carly” Fiorina dropped out of the Republican race for president in February, she was on track to be little more than a history book footnote as the only woman to run against 16 men in the 2016 campaign.

On Wednesday, her footnote status got a reprieve when Texas Senator Ted Cruz, running a distant second to Donald Trump, named her his pick for vice president.

Both Sen. Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich trail GOP league leader Donald Trump by insurmountable margins, as both try to prevent Trump from earning enough delegates in the field to win […]

Tuesday was another great day for Donald John Trump. Sadly, it was another bad day for Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who got washed overboard as voters in five states deluged the Donald with their votes.

The New York billionaire and businessman folk hero shellacked Mr. Kasich and Mr. Cruz with win margins in the mid-60s in some states, putting to rest his critics complaints that he couldn’t break 50-percent. Donald Trump gloated on his big wins, telling fans, friends and media gathered at Trump Tower in New York City that hitting 50 percent with two […]

It’s undisputed that about half of Ohio’s abortion clinics have closed as a direct result of Gov. John Kasich and a far-right Republican-led legislature working hand-in-glove, since 2011, to pass a series of restrictions to their operations.

Gov. Kasich, who spent 18 years in congress before parlaying his time there into lucrative jobs with Lehman Brothers and the Fox News Network, remains in the GOP race for president, even though by delegate count [149] he still trails Florida Senator Marco Rubio [173], who dropped out more than a month ago, by 24 delegates.

Media have mostly been myopic to […]
