Some delegates are hoping to throw out the will of the people and deny Donald Trump the Republican nomination…
According to The Hill:
“At least 30 delegates are mounting a longshot attempt to deny Donald Trump the GOP presidential nomination on the convention floor, The Washington Post reported Friday.
The delegates hope to change party rules next month to take away delegates who are pledged to the presumptive nominee but who may not actually support him.
The attempt comes on the heels of a tough stretch for Trump, who has seen his favorability plummet and any lead over Democrat Hillary Clinton evaporate over his attacks on a Hispanic federal judge, comments this week about banning Muslims and other controversies.
By party rules, Trump has the majority of delegates bound to vote for him on the convention floor, so any successful coup would require freeing those delegates from their commitments in direct violation of party rules currently in effect.”
