John Kasich in New Hampshire: Latest polls and video


Ohio Governor John Kasich has said repeatedly he needs to do well in New Hampshire to keep his presidential campaign going.

Here's a look at some highlights from Kasich's last full day on the trail ahead of Tuesday's primary.

The last CNN/WMUR poll shows Kasich in fourth place, but just four points behind Texas Sen. Ted Cruz who is in third. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is in second at 17 percent and Donald Trump is way out in first at 31 percent.

Sunday poll shows Kasich in second to Trump

A Monmouth University poll released Sunday showed Kasich is in second place with 14 percent of the vote, compared to 30 percent for Trump.

It was a big boost, especially since he is likely to withdraw if he does not manage a breakthrough in Tuesday’s primary.

“He’s said before if he doesn’t emerge out of New Hampshire as a strong viable candidate then he’s not … he has a state to go back to,” Emmalee Kalmbach, Kasich’s New Hampshire spokeswoman, told the Guardian.

Kasich: 'I'm the right porridge'

At a town hall event a young woman said she was torn between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. She asked Kasich why she should vote for him.

“Bernie’s a socialist — that ain’t gonna happen,” Kasich said, adding that Clinton would “run America with pollsters.”

“Hillary’s too brittle. Bernie’s way out here on the extreme. I’m the right porridge. One of them’s too hot, the other one’s too cold. But I’ve got the right temperature,” Kasich said.
