Update 2: Dump Trump Polling begins of Romney v Clinton [View all]

Last edited Mon Jul 11, 2016, 04:52 PM - Edit history (1)

Preibus named a Romney gal, Enid Mickelsen, from Utah, as RNC Rules Committee Chair; and she instantly named another Mitt pal, from Massachusetts as her co-Chair.

New word is, come the RNC Rules Committee meeting, in Colorado, thus coming week…that there already are enough Committee member votes (28) to unbind delegates, for the Dump Trump movement to change the process and free up the state delegates to vote their conscience

So that Mitt Romney may be "drafted" to run.

Pollings begin
Hillary v Romney

According to a news source DU claims is not credible ( though Bill Singletary has been 'Spot On' about Mitt Romney issues)....the following is transpiring

".... the payoff comes next week in Cleveland when Romney walks away with the nomination.”

Source close to the situation say

Pollsters are already hard at work conducting polling that pits Mitt Romney against Democratic presumptive nominee, Hillary Clinton, in anticipation of a Romney-Clinton general election contest, according to one source close to the situation. The polling was spurred, say sources, by credible reports that the GOP Rules Committee has changed the nominating rules to open the door for Mitt Romney to challenge GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump at next week’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Its a done deal..Trump gets to bow out and cry foul laserhaas Jul 2016 #14
Not gonna happen. Would be MAJOR civil war in the party. RBInMaine Jul 2016 #20
Trump won't care. He'll blame the party Establishment... Orsino Jul 2016 #44
He's getting thousands at his rallies. His base is still there. Unfortunately. BlueNoMatterWho Jul 2016 #16
So he is still drawing thousands. I haven't seen anything for a few weeks NWCorona Jul 2016 #23
No, I believe you are correct. My guess is he's planning out the convention details. BlueNoMatterWho Jul 2016 #25
That amount was the headline PJMcK Jul 2016 #27
Yes. I think $51,000,000 was the headline. $26 mil for his campaign, $25 for GOP. BlueNoMatterWho Jul 2016 #32
Thanks for the distinction PJMcK Jul 2016 #34
Agreed! We will know on Friday I believe. BlueNoMatterWho Jul 2016 #37
The use of the word "delgates" instead of "members of the rules committee" BlueNoMatterWho Jul 2016 #2
The article is confusing..having "delegate" in the titke laserhaas Jul 2016 #4
Unbinding the delegates alone is nowhere near enough. MohRokTah Jul 2016 #5
Word is...the rules change is already done laserhaas Jul 2016 #6
Our differences aside. Have you seen or better yet heard Trump? NWCorona Jul 2016 #12
Did you notice he met with Preibus n Cruz laserhaas Jul 2016 #15
Just that Trump invited Cruz to speak at the convention and that Cruz accepted. BlueNoMatterWho Jul 2016 #18
No I didn't. When did that happen? NWCorona Jul 2016 #19
A few days ago. BlueNoMatterWho Jul 2016 #22
That cut off at just the right time for dramatic effect lol! NWCorona Jul 2016 #24
Ain't that the truth! You're welcome. BlueNoMatterWho Jul 2016 #26
The Republican Convention will be a show for the ages PJMcK Jul 2016 #29
Maybe that's how they will get Trump to win? Txbluedog Jul 2016 #36
Great theory! PJMcK Jul 2016 #38
This is closer to the truth than the article in the OP, IMO. BlueNoMatterWho Jul 2016 #21
This would be good for us. BlueNoMatterWho Jul 2016 #7
I really hope they succeed. The split in that party will be epic MyNameGoesHere Jul 2016 #8

I don't think it's coincidence as much as wishful thinking. Exilednight Jul 2016 #45
Its not wishful thinking..Im only reporting facts laserhaas Jul 2016 #46
He will never get the delegates for the GOP nomination. Exilednight Jul 2016 #47
