Donald Trump may be the best of the Republican presidential candidates, but that's not saying much. At least he's more unpredictable while the others are predictably bad.
John Kasich is considered somewhat moderate and possibly the most compassionate of the Republicans, but he's pretty far back in the polls. He's considered compassionate because as governor of Ohio, he didn't block Medicaid expansion. Several other states did.
The so called Republican establishment is quite alarmed by the rise of Donald Trump. He's a wild card, loose cannon candidate. Interesting to watch from my perspective as I lean toward the Democrats.
Maybe not as flashy, but the Democrats have their primary battles also. Between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. I haven't weighed in too heavily on that as I see good in both candidates. Maybe I am a closeted Clinton supporter, but a lot of my friends are for Bernie. Don't tell anyone, ha ha. I'll vote for whoever gets the Democratic nomination; presumably.
