Curious to know how the card-carrying Republicans feel about this.

At any rate, there might be a shortage of popcorn in the near-future.

Still trying to wrap my head around the whole contested convention thing so correct me if I'm wrong here.

If Trump does not have the required amount of 1237 delegates before the July convention, a certain percentage of delegates becomes free to pledge to whoever they want, which could sway support away from Trump and possibly elect another candidate as the nominee.

If one candidate does not have the majority of delegates in the first voting round, more delegates become unbound and vote again. The process continues until one candidate has the majority of delegates and that person will be the republican nominee.

 

So in a short summary, is this how the whole contested convention thing works?

post #12546 of 23704
After a 1st ballot vote in a potential contested which are bound to da primary results, after da 2nd & 3rd round da delegates are free to re-vote for whoever they want, including people who either have long since been eliminated or a consensus pic from da GOP establishment.

This is where da GOP can swindle Trump outta a nomination

After the way Paul Ryan became speaker of the house I knew he was lying about saying he'd support the nominee and wasn't focused on the presidency and the overall talk about he wouldn't want to be the presidential nominee in that way.

He would be a game changer laugh.gif

The New York Daily News has exposed Bernard for the fraud he is.

Daily News: I know you've got to go in a second. When was the last time you rode the subway? Are you gonna a campaign in the subway?

 

Sanders: Actually we rode the subway, Mike, when we were here? About a year ago? But I know how to ride the subways. I’ve been on them once or twice.

 

Daily News: Do you really? Do you really? How do you ride the subway today? Sanders: What do you mean, "How do you ride the subway?"

 

Daily News: How do you get on the subway today?

 

Sanders: You get a token and you get in.

 

Daily News: Wrong.

Bernie's never been known for his eloquence and once again as usual there's a lot of naive or wishful thinking he's relying on while being light on details but that's just how he is.

This is where da GOP can swindle Trump outta a nomination

As much as I dislike Trump as a presidential candidate, I take issue with this.

The South Park dudes are big Ron Paul supporters, I hardly ever agree with their election stuff.

Kerry was clearly a better choice than Bush, Clinton is a better choice than Trump

Would've much rather had Kerry instead of Bush. I think he's fine in his current position though, hope he stays secretary of state.

He's been doing great work overseas, very well liked here.

I know a lot of people that have turned on dude. laugh.gif

Like my cousin put it, "Bern got a lil **** boy in him"

For example:
Quote:

Daily News: Senator, I wanted to ask you. Because you've got this enormous support from young people, as President Obama did in 2008 and 2012. And you're promising a political revolution. But, if nothing changes in the Senate and in the House of Representatives, how are you going to be able to get anything done? I mean the real issue to me seems to be, what happens in the Senate? And what happens in the House of Representatives?

Sanders: Two things. We are talking about a political revolution and we are already delivering on a political revolution well before Election Day. What do I mean by that? What I mean is this country, and what I say in every speech that I give, no President, not me or anybody else, can do it alone. We need to revitalize American democracy, get people engaged in the political process, in a way that we have not seen for a very, very, very long time.

And the reason I say that, getting back to the questions right here, is, in my view, the powers that be in this country — Wall Street, large campaign contributors, corporate America — are so powerful, no President alone could do it.

So what we are seeing already, in this campaign, is, we have received over six million individual campaign contributions. That's a political revolution, you know that? That's unprecedented, I believe, at this point in the campaign, in history. We are seeing...and when you talk about young people, please do not think that these are 23-year-olds or younger. In virtually every primary and caucus process, we have won the votes of people 45 years of age or younger. They're not just kids. And we're seeing, I think, a revitalization of American democracy.

I never believed that we could have voter turnouts higher than Obama did in 2008. Because I thought his 2008 campaign was one of the great campaigns in American history. And, yet, in at least five states, the voter turnout in this campaign so far has been higher. So we are striking a nerve. People want to get involved in the political process and I’m very proud of that.

Now, to answer your question. You can't look at politics as a zero-sum game, and say, "Okay..." First of all, if I win, it will almost by definition mean that there will be a very large voter turnout. That's what I believe. If there is a very large voter turnout, I think the odds are pretty strong Democrats will regain control of the Senate, do better in the House. Can they win the House? I don't know. But they will do better.

But more importantly, if I win, it will mean that millions of people now want to be involved in the political process in a way that has not previously existed. Every item that I am talking about on my agenda is, I believe, supported by the majority of the people in this country. My major job is to mobilize the American people to demand that Congress listen to them and their needs rather than just the big money interests. That's how you make change take place. For example, as you know, I've talked about the need to make public colleges and universities tuition-free. Do I believe we can deliver on that? Absolutely, because I believe that millions of young people and their parents understand that that's what we should be doing right now. And I think if Republicans or some Democrats want to vote against it, they will pay a very heavy political price.
