The two leading candidates vying for the Ohio “winner take all” Republican primary this Tuesday, appeared on Fox News today. Chris Wallace mostly questioned Donald Trump about the protest activities that have occurred this week at some of these rallies. Trump responded by saying that he does not condone violence and that nobody was seriously hurt. He added that these people were professional “obstructers” who had been encouraged by liberal extremist groups. The evidence backs Trump’s words on this. The protesters organized and arrived mostly arrived at the same time at the rallies carrying professional signs. They were there to shut down the rally, not merely to lawfully protest.
John Kasich appeared on the same Fox show and was questioned by Wallace about his past support for common core and why he has temporarily flipped on this issue as he campaigns in Ohio (Wallace produced a video showing Kasich supporting a common cause in the recent past). Kasich got angry and refused to explain why he had radically changed his position. We believe that Cleveland voters are mad about Kasich’s double-talk on this issue to get more primary votes. They are also angry about Kasich’s support for outsourcing jobs in Ohio because it is clear that outsourcing causes many economic problems for workers in Ohio, including declining wages, high rates of unemployment, a shrinking middle class, and a stagnant economy. Cleveland voters are frustrated because although Kasich supports outsourcing, he cannot explain why.
