“I’ve known him for many years and in that time American politics has evolved to the point where labels like moderate no longer apply in the way they did some years ago,” said Larry Sabato, director of UVA’s Center for Politics, who predicted Kasich will not do well in the next contests in South Carolina or Nevada.

The New Hampshire results may also increase the chances of Michael Bloomberg, the former New York mayor, entering the race as an independent. “Bloomberg still has to grapple with an immense partisan divide in American life – even with Sanders and/or Trump as the nominees, it seems doubtful that Bloomberg would win a single state, let alone the election,” said Kyle Kondik, a UVA politics expert. “Clinton continuing to struggle might persuade Bloomberg that there is an opening … even if in reality he would probably just be a spoiler.”

Since the election of Warren Harding in 1920, many Ohioans have tried – Robert A. Taft, John Glenn and Dennis Kucinich among them – but none have succeeded. Barbara Perry, director of presidential studies at UVA’s Miller Center, said the nation's demographic shift is part of the reason Ohio and the Midwest no longer carry the clout they once did.

Born and raised outside Pittsburgh, John Kasich moved to Columbus in 1970 to attend Ohio State University and has been a Buckeye ever since. If Gov. Kasich is elected president, what will be listed as his home state, Ohio or Pennsylvania? The short answer: Probably both. "It certainly helps John Kasich to say he's from Ohio," said Barbara Perry, director of presidential studies at the University of Virginia's Miller Center. "But Pennsylvania has a lot of electoral votes as well."

Bernie Sanders “is in a position to make this last for a while,” said Geoffrey Skelley, a political analyst at UVA’s Center for Politics, citing Sanders's small-donor fundraising power. “Do I think he can win? Unlikely, but I do think that he’s in a position to stick around and to make Clinton work for it longer than she wants to and perhaps push her to the left on a lot of issues more than she wants to.”
