Is John Kasich still running for president? Calls for Kasich to drop out of the race may have gone unanswered as many people are unsure of who he is or if he’s still in the race. Yet his campaign continues on silently.
Who is John Kasich?
John Kasich (R) currently serves as Ohio’s governor. He was elected in 2010 and successfully re-elected in 2014. His approval rating as governor runs very high as he is very popular in Ohio. Kasich served as Ohio’s congressman from 1983-2001. He was victorious in the winner take all Ohio republican presidential primary election.
Why has Kasich gone unnoticed?
Kasich has only had one primary win. He barley missed the under-card debates and often went unnoticed during the heated exchanges between Trump v.Bush and Trump v. Rubio. His quiet friendly campaign was overshadowed by Donald Trump’s media domination and Ted Cruz’s questionable tricks. In the three man race in Arizona, he came in fourth, losing to Marco Rubio who had already dropped out of the race.
Voters have not connected with the Ohio governor who should have been a bigger contender given his actual experience. Cruz is a young and inexperienced senator and Trump has never held a public office.
Ted Cruz’s supporters are calling for Kasich to drop out of the race. The #DropOutKasich hashtag is taking off on Twitter while Kasich’s team quietly pushes on. The Cruz campaign might think Kasich is siphoning votes away, giving Trump a bigger lead in upcoming state primary elections.
Should Kasich drop out? He has less support than Marco Rubio, another establishment lane candidate. As calls to drop out continue, we are unsure if anyone is there to answer the phone. Or maybe he thinks Cruz can not seal the deal against the formidable TV celebrity Donald Trump.
This republican national convention may just be the most entertaining event in recent political history.

John Kasich Refuses to Drop out after Cruz Suspends Campaign
Kasich is clinging to his hopeless presidential campaign perhaps with the hopes of spending every penny of his donor’s money before he quits. With only one win in the GOP primary race, Kasich is clinging to the hope that he can steal enough delegates to deny Trump the 1,237 needed to win outright. With Trump’s win in Indiana and Cruz leaving the race, Kasich may not have a winning argument.
