    Oh, and P.S. I STILL think that a Kasich/Rubio ticket would have been the strongest ticket for the GOP in 2016......and probably in 2020, too. Kasich/Rubio would have CLOBBERED Hillary, in my opinion, rather than eking out a very narrow electoral win while losing the popular vote....

    I dunno. Conventional Wisdom sort of bit the dust in 2016. I doubt that the Kasich/Rubio ticket would have triggered the redneck rampage that turned the rust belt states red for Trump. We all knew (or at least, I did) that Trump could theoretically win if he could squeeze out an adequate increase in white, blue collar voter turnout. I just didn't think that he could actually pull it off.

    He did.

    No. John Kasich was actually the LAST to drop out.

    You weren't paying much attention back then, I guess.

    Sorry, other than trump and 2 others that got eaten alive by the media, the rest were a pile of traitors that were in on the Clinton corruption... Anyone other than trump, would have been a dead horse against Clinton and would have bent over like sanders did to the corruption.
