Trump was robbed of delegates in Colorado...best news I have read today...now can the people get him robbed in NYC!
he didn't get robbed....people don't like voting for billionaire a**holes.....it's pretty much that simple, he only has himself to blame
There was no vote.
Back in August, Colorado changed the process by which it assigns its state delegates. It was sort of like a back room caucus of the party. All the
candidates had to send representatives to court the delegates. Cruz has been making a good game of this and wooing delegates left and right for a
potential second ballot vote. Trump's campaign seems largely oblivious.
So when Colorado delegates were apportioned, they all went Cruz because this has been the Cruz ground game. Man is playing chess.
When the convention comes, assigned delegates are bound for one vote. If Trump does not have enough to win outright, then there is hockey for the
second ballot. Cruz's camp has been busy whining and dining the delegates and working the convention delegate apparatus all over to try to make the up
the necessary total for a second ballot win. None of Trump's first ballot delegates are bound after that first vote as are none of Cruz's. Smart
candidates will be working the margins and trying to persuade delegates to jump camp for the second ballot and maybe third.
If no one can win in the second ballot, then they vote again ... this is when the GOPe figures they can screw over both Trump and Cruz with a Ryan or
Word is that the Trump campaing is more or less ignoring the delegates process and poorly organized. If Trump does not win the delegate count
outright, then Trump supporters better be prepared to see him not get the nomination. Trump may be a smart business, but he is either poorly informed
about the convention process or chooses to remain ignorant of it. If the latter, then I have to wonder how serious he actually is about getting
elected. And if he's not serious about getting elected, then he seems to be more of the agent provocateur after all.
