There is no point, and sane people would call it TREASON.


If Trump gets the votes but not the nomination, time to get out the pitchforks. People are pissed and that would tip them over the edge.


As for Romney, someone needs to sit his butt down and explain what We, the People means. God, what a traitor that greasy fool turned out to be!

What you don't seem to have grasped is those who argue that are being marginalized more and more every day. Look at Graham.....he says it all the time and what is the reaction? The reaction is "go away Lindsey".

It's an automatic loss if the GOP picks anyone other than Trump. If it's Trump/Sanders, Sanders win.

If it's Trump/Hillary its the one who can get the most independent voters. I say that will be Trump.


I've got to agree with you both.

So you are saying that nobody would voluntarily decide that any of the others is the best candidate? That they have to be forced by the RNC, power and money to vote for someone other than trump?

Over 50% of the republican vote so far has gone for someone other than trump, and it all because of the RNC?

Y'all trump supporters have a really inflated view of your importance. Other voters out number you, and all you can do is say it is a conspiracy, and not admit that your candidate is not the majority's choice.

Gaaah! I do hope that trump takes off as an independent (empty threats or what? either s==t or get of the pot, dude!) and gives the republican party back to those who are actually republicans."

Not sure how to do all the fancy stuff. But I think you misunderstood what I was saying. First off I am not a Trump supporter. I bleed Cruz Blood! And I know what you mean about Trump is not "the peoples choice". If he was then he would have a majority and this convo wouldn't even be happening. What I mean by a forced Brokered Convention that seams to be the RNC's Plan. There is a difference between having weak candidates or so many that are so good that votes are split among them and no one gets a majority. And the RNC performing Robo Calls not in suport of someone but in opposition of someone and also spending power influence and money to keep people in the race to further split the delegates off of Trump. i am not also saying that is in fact what they are doing. Who knows Rubio and Kasic might be staying in for their own reasons. But just cause you can't prove it doesn't mean it isn't happening.

States like Kentucky, West Virginia and a few others are a given. They are icing on the cake for Trump.
The question is whether Trump is gaining support from Democrats who usually support the national ticket, or whether he's getting the support of conservatives who are registered Democrats because traditionally local races are decided in Democratic primaries, but who have been voting Rupublican in Presidential elections for years. If he's drawing support from national Democrats who voted for Kerry and Obama, then that's a big deal; if he's drawing the support of DINOS that never vote D in Presidential elections, then it won't make much of a difference in the general election, although it helps Trumpf in the R primaries.
