Ruhm of UVA and Jane Waldfogel of Columbia University.

"Trump got the intense backing of a third of the party, and they carried him through good times and bad," said Larry Sabato, a UVA political science professor.

Political observer Larry Sabato, of UVA’s Center for Politics, said Kasich might make a perfunctory endorsement, then plead that he’s too busy to spend time on politics. “Kasich can be unpredictable. Normally we’d just assume an endorsement of the winner, but Trump is no ordinary nominee. And I suppose Kasich is no ordinary rival. I’d say he would indicate he’s voting for the GOP candidate – then stay very busy through November.”
