John Kasich, governor of Ohio and 2016 Republican presidential candidate, left, speak with Senator Charles 'Chuck' Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, while being introduced during a town hall meeting at the National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, U.S., on Friday, Jan. 29, 2016. In the chaos that is the New Hampshire Republican primary, one candidate is steering clear of the bumper-car madness and quietly creeping ahead of his rivals. Last week Kasich placed second in New Hampshire in five out of six recent polls, behind longstanding front-runner Donald Trump. Photographer: Andrew Harrer/Bloomberg via Getty Images
