Kasich taking voters from Bernie?

Anybody else think Kasich turned the election by syphoning Bernie voters? I wonder what his ads said in Ohio? Trump is up now and may win. So if Kasich did that, he gave the state to Trump and Clinton. What a travesty. What an ego.

1. He screwed himself as well because he said if he loses his own state he's out.

3. Doubt it

Bernie owns the Indpendants. Bernie loses Dem's by about 20 points. If they are flipping then it would hurt Hillary IMO.

13. I've said for some time...

That Kasich is the biggest threat. He's the only candidate that has any chance of beating either of the democratic candidates.

On the one hand I'd like to see him get the nomination because he seems the least ridiculous of the republicans, on the other hand, he has a better chance of winning, and I don't want to see that.

6. Ohio has closed primaries

 

Somebody registered as a democrat cant vote in the republican primary.

Also, Kasich wants to win an election. I cant get mad at the guy for trying to appeal to all voters.

11. Nope. It's the other way around. Bernie has been poaching Republican and Independent anti-Hillary

voters in open primaries. Except for Ohio. Kasich is the Governor of Ohio, and they are not giving him up to Trump just to stick it to Hillary.

The Revolution is highly invested in its serendipitous proxy war. No right-wing cavalry for Bernie today, maybe? But it's early. I could be wrong.

14. I wondered - what did the Kasich ads claim?

I think you answered that. Kasich is extreme right-wing from what I read. So, a state that could have gone to Bernie - with those same unhappy voters - may have gone to Kasich? Something happened in Ohio.
