Why Trump Can’t Afford to Miss 1,237

First Read: “As the Republican presidential race turns next to the April 5 primary in Wisconsin, the reality for Donald Trump is that, heading into the Cleveland convention, he can’t afford to miss hitting the magic number of 1,237 — the delegates needed to clinch a majority to win the nomination. Why? Because there’s an active effort to stop him on a second ballot if anyone falls short of the number.”

One unbound delegate from North Dakota told National Review: “Voters in the primaries are not representative of the people who are gonna’ be sittin’ in the chairs in Cleveland,” he said. “The convention delegates from Arizona are going to be very conservative people, I guarantee ya’.”

1. Voters in the primaries are not representative of the people who are gonna’ be sittin’ in the chairs

 

That is sort of the problem right there.

Even more so with Democrats and the whole super delegate phenomenon on our side.

2. Won't he just "promise" $$$ to any undeclared delegates (and presumably)

quite a few "declared" delegates? The man clearly has no scruples--not that his RW cohorts have any more than he...
