Ohio governor and 2016 Republican presidential candidate John Kasich hinted that he may challenge President Trump in 2020, stating "all my options are on the table." Many have urged the moderate Republican to run—Kasich would bring some much-needed decency back into politics. But others think Kasich challenging Trump would be a terrible idea. It would only divide the Republican Party, and Kasich wouldn't stand a chance against Trump. What do you think?

Ohio governor and 2016 Republican presidential candidate John Kasich has hinted at a possible 2020 run for a while now. When asked recently if he'd challenged Trump, Kasich said: "all my options are on the table." But for now, Kasich is focused on his last nine months as Ohio's governor.

“What I know is that I want these next nine months to be a wonderful time in Ohio,” Kasich said. While he repeatedly said he had “no clue” whether he’d run for president again, he added that “I would like to keep my voice out there.” Kasich returned New Hampshire for the first time in a year to deliver a speech at New England College, as part of the school’s President’s Speaker Series. Kasich told the audience, “I am trying to be a voice that brings about stability and objectivity in our country.”

Many are excited about the prospect of a Kasich 2020 run. Unlike the majority of Republican leaders, Kasich has remained firm on his anti-Trump stance. Kasich has always put country over party and has the potential to win both disaffected Republicans and Democrats who are unsatisfied with their leadership. 

But others think Kasich would get trounced by Trump. He represents everything Trump supporters hate about politicians.

And polling suggests Kasich is a long way away from ever defeating Trump.
