As I stated this morning, this deal that Cruz and Kasich have cut to divvy up Indiana, New Mexico, and Oregon will not be enough to prevent Trump from getting the nomination. The main reason for that is that John Kasich is an incurable narcissist who doesn’t really understand how deals work or how to be a part of a team that doesn’t have him at the head. Here’s one tweet that proves it:
Kasich on whether Indiana voters should vote for him or Cruz:
“They ought to vote for me”

As long as Kasich is telling his voters this, the fact that he isn’t campaigning there doesn’t matter. It’s not like Kasich has any money to run any ads anyway. He’s just trying to LOOK like he’s cooperating, but really he’s not.
