The New York Times writes about John Kasich’s struggling campaign today. Reporter Jonathan Martin writes:
“He received fewer votes in one state than a candidate who was no longer in the race. He has not added a single delegate since March 15. And outside of his home state — the only one he has won to date — he has been the top vote-getter in just four counties.
Gov. John Kasich of Ohio has performed so abysmally in the Republican presidential primary that his curious insistence on remaining in the race has made him into a can’t-take-a-hint punch line.
As the race for the Republican presidential nomination turns toward a series of Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic states this month, even Mr. Kasich’s supporters concede that he must quickly demonstrate relevance if he is to have even a long-shot hope of emerging as an alternative candidate at a contested convention this summer.”
