The tighter you grasp, the more voters who will slip through your fingers.
The powers that be in the Republican Party completely misread their own party and all of a sudden its Donald Trump's fault. They're getting what they deserve.
The Republicans were given a mandate to stop Obungo in 2014. They ignored it. So sad, too bad.
The Republican Party selects their candidate based on who the people vote for.
The Democrat party ought to give that a try.
They might select the candidate that way but they might not.
Campaigns secretly prep for brokered GOP convention
Candidates, outside groups and party officials are quietly maneuvering for a nomination fight that goes all the way to the bitter end.

Republican voters are susceptible to fear and hate. Trump is good at playing into fear.
All the shit that goes on behind closed doors.
great article..good read..
the rats are squirming as they should.
super delegates and caucus' need to be gotten rid of
The Republican party has become hypocritical and stupid. Reagan must be rolling in his grave right about now. They wish to stop Trump's brand of divisive politics. However, they vowed to make Obama a one-term president, lied to the people in the 2014 elections, refused to work with Obama, and Trump is the divisive one?
and democrats never use fear.
The Democratic Party did have that system until 1972 when the hippies overtook the party and nominated George McGovern, who proceeded to get waxed 49 states to 1 + DC.
I don't particularly enjoy the idea of Super Delegates, but they were created to keep a McGovern-type of candidate from ever happening again.
I have to wonder whether the anti-Trump Right is engineered in order to make him seem like an anti-establishment outsider.
I say this because other than his Moslem/Mexican rhetoric, he's status-quo.
Historically, he likes government run healthcare, he's a fan of debt (ie the banks), likes big government, hes pro-choice, anti-gun.
But he now says he's changed and has adopted the GOP platform.
Even though he criticized Iraq, he's not opposed to our foreign empire ie the Military Industrial Complex.
So what exactly is such a "threat" when he endorses the establishment agendas on both sides of the aisle?
The fix is in for Hillary, no doubt.
But Bernie isnt the anti-establishment hero that his fan boys have made him out to be.
He says he wants to cut military spending to fund his "free" college tuition program yet he is an advocate of the most expensive and bloated military project in our nation's history despite calling it "incredibly wasteful".
And when "anti-banker" Sanders actually had a chance to stick it to Wall St. what does he do? He sides with the banksters...
Everybody interested throws their hat in the ring by Halloween.
First debate on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, limited to the top ten in the polls.
Second debate the Tuesday before Chrsitmas.
A national primary the first Tuesday in January, no early voting, straw polls, cockeye or etc.
More debates follow through the spring.
A second national primary the Tuesday after April 15. Again, no nonsense, go to the polls, that day and vote, that's it.
First place = Party's presidential nominee, second place = party's VP choice.
Both parties must participate, incumbency is irellevant.
The neocons and big oil want Rubio who will be another George W. Bush.
Neocons and Big Oil want a puppet in the White House like they had with Dubya for 8 years.
Trump is too wild for them. There's a chance he may not agree to something or just embarrass them.
