The Wall Street Journal editorial page has the thigh sweats for John Kasich all of a sudden. He can beat Hillary Clinton, dontchaknow?! The polling shows it. Kasich consistently beats Hillary Clinton.
Likewise, Bernie Sanders curb stomps every single Republican. They do so for the exact same reason.
No one has laid a hand on them. Clinton has not unleashed hell on Bernie Sanders and the Republicans have ignored John Kasich. There have been barely any negative attacks on either man.
So naturally they have high positives and people say they prefer these guys to the alternatives. Were Kasich subjected to the attacks on his character and record that Cruz has withstood, he’d be begging for his dad’s old job at the post office.
The people who look at the polling and think Kasich really could outperform Hillary at such a high level are people who really do not know much about politics. Same with Sanders.
