Kasich Refuses To Say Whether He'd Support Trump As GOP Nominee

WOSU composite
The latest average of several national polls says Trump has about ten times the amount of support among Republicans as Kasich.

Gov. John Kasich continued his criticism of fellow GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump on one of the Sunday talk shows.

Kasich was on “This Week” on ABC with Martha Raddatz, who asked him if he’d support the Republican presidential nominee if it were Donald Trump.

“We need a leader that brings us together, not a leader that's separating us, one group from another.

RADDATZ: "Does that mean you would not support him if he were the nominee?"

KASICH: "Well, he's not going to be the nominee.”

Answering follow-up questions, Kasich never said he wouldn’t support Trump as the nominee, just that he’s confident Trump won’t be. Kasich and Trump have been going back and forth on Twitter and in public statements for about a week, after Kasich’s super PAC launched an ad that suggests Trump doesn’t have the experience to be elected president.
