Kasich and Cruz join forces to block Trump

Republican presidential candidates John Kasich and Ted Cruz announced Sunday that their campaigns will join forces to block front-runner Donald Trump. Trump needs 1,237 delegates to clinch the Republican nomination; to prevent him from reaching that number, Kasich and Cruz will not compete with each other in the upcoming Indiana, New Mexico, and Oregon primaries. 

Kasich will now focus on winning the Western states. Cruz is ceding New Mexico and Oregon to Kasich and concentrating all his resources on winning in Indiana. Is the Kasich/Cruz plan wise? Or a major error?

Some Republicans are applauding this move, saying a Trump nomination would doom the GOP's chances in 2016. But other political observers warn that openly blocking Trump could seriously backfire with the grassroots, who could see the plan as a back-room maneuver to override the people's choice.
