Hypothetically, lets assume that this election plays out in two ways:
- Trump gets nominated, loses the election, and kills the downticket candidates
- Someone else wins in a brokered convention, the people are upset that the RNC went against their will, nominee loses, kills the downticket candidates.
Either way, it’s bad for the Republicans.
So, what will the GOP do to avoid this situation again? How can they ensure that “their” candidate gets chosen, while not looking like they’re going against the public. Create their own super-delegates? Re-do the primaries so they’re not a giant mess of proportional and winner take all?
