Does it matter?
If John Kasich stays in and Ted Cruz gets a few more win and a strong seconds as the GOP race plays out?
Donald Trump probabaly will not get to the winning number of 1,237 Republican delegates ……
What does this mean will happen?
The Grand Old party will then go into a Convention in Cleveland in July with a dilemma …..
Do they stick to the rules and have convention votes to pick the winner, knowing that first vote will bring Trump in short…And the second ballot vote free’s delegates to pick who THEY want and Trump is out with dlelegates going for Cruz or Kasich OR anyone else from Mitt Romney to Paul Ryan?
Gonna be a LOT of maneuvering on this as Trump KNOWS the party COULD ace him out….
Trump and the Media would surely cry it’s unfair for them to actually follow THEIR OWN RULES……
What would a damaged party do?
They’re polling behind Hillary Clinton actually anyways now….
And the party is coming a part also….
Trump did pass a key threshold on Tuesday by winning a majority of delegates in his eighth GOP contest. Convention rules currently stipulate that only candidates who pass that threshold are eligible for the nomination.
Trump is the only candidate to reach the marker, but the threshold can be easily changed by convention delegates before the convention begins.
Rubio’s decision to drop out of the race could help Trump pick up his delegate pace, as he has one less candidate to split delegates awarded proportionately by states.
While Arizona, Deleware, Nebraska, Montana and New Jersey still have winner-take-all contests, most of the remaining states do not.
Cruz’s hope is that supporters of Rubio will move to his campaign.
Avik Roy, a former Rubio health care adviser, immediately called for “Rubio supporters—and all conservatives—to united around [Ted Cruz]” in a post on Twitter.
His surrogates are also calling for Kasich to drop out of the race.
“If John Kasich stays in the race, he may as well contribute all the money he spends in-kind to Donald Trump because he will make it so that Cruz cannot compete with him in the winner-take-all states,” former Cruz aide Rick Tyler said Tuesday night on MSNBC.
If Trump doesn’t get to 1,237, delegates at the convention will cast ballots…..
