Dick Morris: Kasich in Secret Deal to Help Trump Win GOP Nomination


By    |   Wednesday, 16 Mar 2016 02:48 PM

Donald Trump and John Kasich may have a "behind-the-scenes" deal in which the Ohio governor remains in the race for the Republican presidential nomination to allow the billionaire developer to get enough delegates to win it, veteran political analyst Dick Morris tells Newsmax TV.

And if that happens, it may lead the way for Trump considering Kasich as his vice-presidential running mate.

"I suspect there may be a quiet, secret, behind-the-scenes understanding reached between Trump and Kasich, where Kasich stays in the race, siphons off enough votes, and Trump is the nominee," Morris said Wednesday on "Dennis Michael Lynch: Unfiltered."

"People were talking about Kasich being in the race to cause a brokered convention. That's the exact opposite of the truth. If he stays in the race, he will make a brokered convention very unlikely because Trump will win those delegates.

"Where everybody gets it wrong is they don't understand that in the Republican primaries, you have a few states that are winner-take-all, but most of the states that remain are winner-take-most, which means Trump would walk away with the vast bulk of the delegates were it a three-way race."

Meanwhile, Morris believes the Republican Party establishment will continue to fight Trump, but will quickly fall into line if the billionaire developer wins enough delegates to capture the nomination.

"There's a middle ground, which is fight him to the end, but make nice to him in public. These guys are not going to risk alienating 40 percent of their own party voters by being vehement and vocal in opposing Donald Trump. It's not going to happen," Morris said.

"On the other hand, they are scared to death of Trump because of the very independence that you value and I value and therefore they're not really going to help him, they'll oppose him every way they get."
