Heilemann: Kasich Staying in Is Good for Trump; Splits the Anti-Trump Vote

‘As long as John Kasich stays in the race along with Ted Cruz, you’re talking about ... the splitting the anti-Trump vote’

HEILEMANN: "As long as John Kasich stays in the race along with Ted Cruz, you’re talking about a split — the splitting the anti-Trump vote. Mitt Romney made this point the other day. As long as both those guys are in the race, that’s just good news for Donald Trump. So, it’s great for Trump that Cruz came in third in and of itself, but it’s also great for Trump that Cruz came in third because it gives Kasich an argument for going on. And as long as Kasich goes on along with Cruz that’s doubly good for Trump in the states ahead.”
