Of course the GOP elites fear a Ted Cruz and Donald Trump presidency.
So naturally, they want to strip the voters of their rights to pick a candidate and put up someone instead that the GOP elites prefer.
One thing that unites many supporters of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz is the suspicion that party elders might try to hand the Republican presidential nomination to another candidate if neither Trump nor Cruz arrives in Cleveland with the 1,237 delegates required to win.
Important voices in the conservative world have voiced such concerns.Rush Limbaugh, for one, has speculated that the Republican establishment will try to “install whoever they want” at a contested convention. (Limbaugh guessed such a final choice might be Jeb Bush or Paul Ryan.)
Now Karl Rove, a man many view as the physical embodiment of the establishment, has poured gallons of fuel on the Republican fire. Appearing on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show Thursday evening, Rove said a “fresh face” chosen at the convention might turn the GOP’s fortunes around and win in November.
This is so absurd. The elites can’t just pick someone that they want and ignore the will of the voters. It’s insane that they’re even talking about this!
What do you think? Should the GOP elites be picking the Republican candidate for the voters?
