The constitution says only a natural born citizen can become president, there will be a supreme court fight on what the framers meant by "natural born" and I'm thinking Trump's lawyers will have a strong argument that being born in Canada doesn't exactly fit the bill
That Trump card is full of caca. We already heard that before.

Yes, I'm supporting the front runner and leader Donald J. Trump. Good luck to you and your candidate. Yeah I knew you weren't really Ted. I heard he was in a meeting with his donors and supporters like the one below.

There are likely to be 3 people in the race in about 48 hours. And Kasich has not been a factor except in New Hampshire and now Ohio. It is just a matter of time before he drops out, too.

As far as Cruz giving his delegates to Trump, all I have to say to that is:

Bwaahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Trump is likely going to have a very good week this week, and then after that, it is going to be a long, slow grind that ultimately results in a rude awakening for you folks.

By the way, if Trump gets screwed in brokered convention, he would win as an independent. Sanders supporters will come to The Donald.

If it keeps them from overspending, yes.

I asked how Americans managed to buy a record number of vehicles if times were really so bad?
I answered that. Auto manufacturing plants moved to Mexico where labor costs are cheaper, there is no import tariff (NAFTA), and so vehicles are affordable for more people. I even posted a link.

Default If a convention fight happens who do you see coming out on top?

Honestly, I think they will reach outside of the current field and pick someone else. I can't envision them going with Kasich or Rubio considering how poorly they did. I also don't foresee them choosing Cruz given how unlikable he is. I also don't think he will end up with more than 600-700 delegates even if Trump does not get the majority. Outside of Texas he hasn't done well in higher population states either. Which makes it less likely he would compete that well in the general election.

I think they will go outside of the election for the nominee most likely. Cruz is not only unlikable, but unelectable as well. Contrary to all the people who think polls 9 months out show just how well he would wallop Hilary. His performance in that kinds of states that matter show how limited his appeal would really be. I think at this point the GOP is resigning themselves to possibly losing and just trying to limit the amount of downticket damage that might occur.

They have to go with Trump or Cruz. 70 percent have voted for them.

Romney. Right now the GOP is playing the candidates against one another with the promise that it gives them a chance to snag the nomination if it goes to a brokered one. Sadly, the candidates, with the exception of Trump, are so stupid that they are buying into this and since you fix "stupid", it is better they go home empty handed. GOP is going to try to hand Hillary the POTUS since it all one party behind the scenes, the "dynasty" party.

They are assured that Romney is a loser.
