Well, look at it from the RNC's point of view. At this point in time they can legitimately be, well, concerned. We are months away from the election,
but Trump's campaign appears to be in a spot of bother (there's British understatement for you) at the moment, with the polls heading downwards and
with Trump speaking before thinking half the time. Oh and apparently he's not even calling GOP fundraisers enough.
The RNC currently has three options. One: hope that Trump get's his sh*t together, fundraises properly, tones down the 'Obama has a sooper seekrit
mus'lim agenda!' crap and employs a decent speechwriter instead of his stream of consciousness rubbish. Now, this is risky because it depends on Trump
behaving like the politicians he says he despises and places him in a fascinating logical conundrum. So there's a risk that Trump fails to pull out of
his tailspin and crashes, so that the GOP loses the Senate, possibly the House, lots of Governorships and lots more state senators. This is risky.
Option two: The RNC decides that Trump is overwrought and that a steadier person is needed as a candidate. So they change the rules, unbind the
delegates and 'allow' another candidate to emerge. Now this is the nuclear option as it has huge, huge, risks. Firstly a lot of the delegates are
loyal to Trump and there'd be a minor riot at the very least. It would result in the convention being the GOP's version of the DNC at Chicago in 1968,
with massive negative publicity and with Trump exploding like a minor nuke. Plus there's the chance that Ted 'Grandpa Munster' Cruz would try and
resurrect his rotting attempt for the nomination. This is also risky.
Option three: The RNC allows Trump the nomination and then effectively ignores him, pumping everything they can into the Senate and Houses races in a
desperate effort to keep the damage to a minimum. This is also risky.
Let's face it: the RNC is facing unpleasant choices and sleepless nights.
