Charles Krauthammer told viewers Friday on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that when it comes to the battle for the GOP nomination “the anti-establishment has won in the form of Cruz and Trump.”
“Now the question is, which of the two will it be? It’s not going to be Kasich,” Krauthammer said. “There is no way you’re going to reach down to the third in line.”
When asked why Kasich was still campaigning for the nomination, Krauthammer said his efforts were either “delusional or grandiose, one or the other.”
Krauthammer also theorized that if Kasich does well in the Northeast and Midwest portions of the United States and denies Trump victories in those areas, he could keep Trump from the nomination.
In that case, if both Trump and Cruz make it to the GOP convention in Cleveland, Ohio in July without enough delegates to win, Krauthammer said either is likely to have a legitimate claim to the nomination.
