Kasich always was the better general election candidate for the GOP but these polls should probably be taken with a grain of salt because hypothetical candidates often outperform real ones. He has whatever W had (not too intellectual and weird enough to seem genuine - it never worked for me but a lot of voters bought it) and Wall Street loves the guy. In reality he was also a Paul Ryan Grover Norquist dream candidate whose seemingly benevolent nature could be as great a con as the Donald and do lasting damage to the country of a different nature than Trump - more dystopia for the less fortunate, less apocalyptic. Glad he's gone.

That's true. He was probably the most electable of their candidates. And he was universally loathed on the far right. Erickson, when he was at Redstate had not a kind word for Kasich. and no one else there did either.
