ROUGH CUT - NATURAL (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential hopeful Gov. John Kasich told supporters in New York that he is "not applying for sainthood," but when a supporter shouted that he wanted a hug, Kasich said, "we are all really hungry to feel as though somebody else cares about us." "I am not applying for sainthood or anything else," he told supporters in Upstate New York. "I am just going to do the best job I can to restore integrity," he said. Kasich has said his path to victory in the Republican race is to rely on winning at least enough votes to block an outright win for Donald Trump and force a decision at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Trump has topped the national polls throughout most of the race for the Republican nomination and has won more delegates than any other Republican so far. A Reuters/Ipsos online poll from April 4-8 showed that 42 percent of Republicans support Trump, compared with 32 percent for U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and 20 percent for Kasich.
