Ted Cruz and John Kasich have agreed to join forces to try to deny frontrunner Donald Trump the Republican Party's presidential nomination, their campaigns said April 24.
The sudden alliance, revealed in short statements, arose due to the pressing timing of the Republican party's presidential primary season.
The odds have lengthened against a Donald Trump presidency after his Wisconsin defeat, and they were probably already ten-to-one against. If he wins the Republican nomination, which is still very likely, he will almost certainly face Hillary Clinton in the November election, and lose badly.
"How does Trump keep winning?" this is what political scientists are trying to understand. The answer to that question might explain the Turkish case as well.
