Donald Trump Says Regarding Contested Convention: ‘I Hope It Doesn’t Involve Violence’

WOW DONALD, THAT IS MIGHTY BIG OF YOU …

Donald Trump said Sunday in Staten Island, NY. “I hope it doesn’t involve violence, and I don’t think it will. But I will say this, it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system. It’s 100 percent corrupt.” Really Donald, you are still whining about this near one week later?  With regards to Trumps comments that he hopes there is not violent, I would say, you are hardly doing anything to prevent it as you get people to a fever pitch with your rhetoric. There are plenty of things in politics that are rigged and corrupt, however, this is not one of them. I wonder is this is how he acts in his own business when he has to follow the rules that are set up to bid a contract? It is disconcerting that Trump does not seem to grasp the delegate process that has been around forever. If he cannot understand and navigate his way thru this process, what is he going to do when it comes to the electoral college and the job of president of the United States?

Folks, you don’t get to be a king when you are president. Note to Republicans, isn’t that one of your main gripes about Barack Obama?

Donald Trump thumbs up

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sunday that he hopes a contested Republican convention in July “doesn’t involve violence” if he is denied the nomination during second-ballot voting.

“I hope it doesn’t involve violence. I hope it doesn’t. I’m not suggesting that,” Trump told reporters on Sunday here in Staten Island. “I hope it doesn’t involve violence, and I don’t think it will. But I will say this, it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system. It’s 100 percent corrupt.”

Trump said Saturday that the Republican National Committee is in for a “rough July” if he does not receive the nomination despite his overwhelming delegate lead. If the billionaire fails to cross the 1,237-delegate threshold necessary to clinch the nomination outright, anti-Trump conservatives hope to challenge him at the convention and install an establishment-friendly alternative.

Said Donald Trump today. Does he sound like he’s encouraging violence even when he’s saying he hopes there won’t be violence? If so, it’s because he doesn’t say “I don’t want violence” or “I urge my supporters to refrain from violence.” There’s something oddly passive about “I hope it doesn’t involve violence” — as if he holds no sway with his supporters, as if he’s suggesting it’s up to the other side to resist doing the things that will necessitate violence from my people. So I hear a vague, deniable threat. And this too contains a vague, deniable threat:

Despite Constant Whining from Trump … GOP Delegate System Has Benefitted The Donald (VIDEO)

TALK ABOUT YOUR SORE LOSERS … TRUMP IS BENEFITING FROM THE GOP DELEGATE SYSTEM AND HE IS STILL WHINING

Hey Donald, don’t ask for things they might come true. Hmm, it is a rigged and disgusting system and guess what, its benefiting Donald Trump. I agree with Trump, lets make the delegate system more fair and make it all depended upon the vote of the people. If that is the case, we would be taking delegates away from Donald Trump and giving them  to the other candidates. The GOP delegate process favors the front-runner, it always has. The truth of the matter is that Donald Trump is benefiting from the GOP delegate system. Wake up America and pay attention … Donald Trump is actually benefiting from the delegate rules and has more delegates with the current process than if he applied his own “Trump” rule.

Donald Trump and his mouth pieces just cannot shut up and stop whining about losing Colorado as he got his clock cleaned there. But interesting enough how come Trump is not bitching and moaning about the unfair practices in Florida where he only gained 46% of the vote and all 99 of the delegates? Or in Missouri where he beat Cruz by .2% of the vote and gained 10 more delegates? TRUMP, JUST SHUT UP AND STOP WHINING, ITS GETTING REALLY OLD. YOU SOUND LIKE AL GORE AND THE REST OF THE LIBS!

Donald Trump blasted the GOP’s delegate rules Sunday, saying a “corrupt” system is denying him delegates in states he won. According to a new NBC analysis, however, Trump has benefited far more than Ted Cruz under the party’s arcane rules for allocating delegates.

Trump now leads the Republican field with 756 delegates — or 45 percent of all delegates awarded to date. Yet he has won about 37 percent of all votes in the primaries, according to the NBC analysis, meaning Trump’s delegate support is greater than his actual support from voters.

For each percentage point of total primary votes that Trump has won, he has been awarded 1.22 percent of the total delegates.

In other words, as a matter of Republican Party math, Trump has been awarded a delegate bonus of 22 percent above his raw support from voters.

For each percentage point of total primary votes that Trump has won, he has been awarded 1.22 percent of the total delegates.

In other words, as a matter of Republican Party math, Trump has been awarded a delegate bonus of 22 percent above his raw support from voters.

By contrast, Cruz has been awarded about 1.14 percent of the delegates for each percentage point of votes he has won — a delegate bonus of 14 percent above his raw support.

If you wanted a real rigged system, that would be the Democrat party system where “super delegates,” not the voters are determining the race in favor of Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. That is truly a rigged system where the fix is in for Hillary.

 

Fox News Poll: Donald Trump widens lead in GOP Race, While Hillay Clinton – Bernie Sanders Race Tightens

IS IT ANY WONDER WHY TRUMP HAS WIDENED LEAD AS LATELY FOX NEWS HAS ACTED LIKE A TRUMP SUPER PAC …

According to a recent FOX News poll, Donald Trump is widening his lead in the Republican primary race over Ted Cruz and John Kasich. On the Democrat side, the race has become much tighter between socialist Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. If the race is this close for the Democrats, it makes won wonder what kind of unreported division there truly is in the Donkey camp and how that will play out at the convention and if Hillary is indicted or not. It is simply amazing that Hillary Clinton cannot shake Sanders. If it were not for the establishment being in the tank for Hillary and the super delegates, the Democrat race would be a virtual tie.

Also, as Hot Air opines, the polls is a little bit puzzling as to why Trump would be surging with gains by Kasich and a decline by Cruz. This is supposed to be a national poll, not a New York one.

Donald Trump jumps to an 18-point lead over Ted Cruz this week with record high support for the Republican nomination.

Trump tops Cruz by 45-27 percent among GOP primary voters in a new Fox News national poll on the 2016 election.  John Kasich comes in third with 25 percent.

Three weeks ago, the mogul was up by three over Cruz:  41-38 percent, with Kasich at 17 percent (March 20-22, 2016).

Forty-five percent is a new high for Trump.  The previous high was last month’s 41 percent.

Trump’s best numbers come from GOP voters without a college degree (54 percent) and those who describe themselves as “very” conservative (50 percent).

In contrast, the Democratic race tightened.  Clinton is ahead by two points, edging Bernie Sanders by 48-46 percent.  Last month, before Sanders won eight of the nine most recent contests, she had a 13-point advantage (55-42 percent).

ABC News/WAPO Poll: Donald Trump More Unpopular Than Anyone but David Duke in Last 30 Years of Presidential Elections

HMM …

According to the most recent ABC News/Washington Post poll, Donald Trump is the most unpopular presidential candidate in the past three decades, other than former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.  Sixty-seven percent stated they held and unfavorable view of Donald Trump while only 31% said they had a favorable one. What is interesting only 2% said they had no opinion which shows just how polarizing The Donald is. Either people love him or hate him. More importantly it further shows the ceiling that Trump has and the questionable chance Trump he of winning over voters for a general election.

Poll can be read HERE.

Donald Trump is the most unpopular top-tier presidential candidate over more than three decades of ABC News/Washington Post polls, except for former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. That’s according to the results of the latest national ratings released Thursday, which did not carry too auspicious results for Trump’s two Republican opponents, either.

Two in three Americans surveyed in the poll — 67 percent — said they held an unfavorable view of Trump, while just 31 percent said they saw him favorably and only 2 percent said they had no opinion of him. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s favorability rating was marginally higher, at 36 percent, while 53 percent said they had an unfavorable view of him and 11 percent said they had no opinion. Ohio Gov. John Kasich made out the best in the poll, with 39 percent each responding that they had a favorable and unfavorable opinion of him, but 22 percent said they had no opinion either way.

Trump’s 67 percent unfavorable rating is nearly as low as the 69 percent of Americans who said they had a negative view of Duke in a February 1992 poll. Unlike Trump, Duke went on to receive fewer than 120,000 votes and zero convention delegates.

Donald Trump Whines Once Again, the Rules are ‘Stacked Against Me’

DONALD TRUMP, THE BOY WHO WHINED WOLF …

There is no doubt that the mood of the country is against establishment government and that is especially the case where Republicans are against the establishment GOP politicians. Thus the rise of outside candidates like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz on the Republican side and Bernie Sanders for the Democrats. However, Trumps latest whine that he was screwed in Colorado and it was unfair is tiresome and old. If Trump wins, everything is golden, if he loses, a travesty has taken place. Now Trump is claiming the process is stacked against him. Really? Truth be known, the GOP set up the primaries and caucuses to benefit the front-runner.

If Trump does not understand the delegate process, who is going to explain the electoral college to him?

Trump Wine

Let’s get a couple things correct, Trump lost in Colorado because he failed miserably on following the rules of how tat state’s delegate process works. Donald, the rules are the rules. But I guess the rules don’t apply to Donald Trump. Wow, just what we need, another president like Obama who thinks the rules don’t apply to them. My personal opinion with Trump is that he has no idea what the delegate process is and has no idea that it is different from state to state. I think Trump actually believed that every state has a vote like a general election. Welcome to the Republic that is the United States from its founding. Trump was supposed to know the rules when he decided to run. No one just changed the rules for these state delegate processes just to screw over The Donald. Really Mr. Trump, get over your self. Trump said during a town hall with CNN“We’re really way up in votes in votes, in terms of the voters. But the Colorado thing was very, very unfair.” And I am sorry to say to all the Trump supporters and mis-guided Conservatives who support Trump, he is beginning to sound like a whining liberal.

Donald Trump said Tuesday night that the political system is “stacked against me,” and accused the Republican Party of conspiring to stop him from clinching the party’s nomination.

At a special CNN town hall in New York City ahead of next Tuesday’s crucial New York primary, Trump said: “I know the rules very well, but I know it’s stacked against me by the establishment.”

His comments elicited a tough response from Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, who tweeted: “Nomination process known for a year + beyond. It’s the responsibility of the campaigns to understand it. Complaints now? Give us all a break.”

The feud between Trump and rival Ted Cruz engulfed the RNC Tuesday night, after the GOP presidential front-runner at CNN’s town hall blasted “unfair” results in Colorado. He was swept there in the delegate hunt by Cruz at a party convention this weekend. A similar outcome emerged from Louisiana, where he won the primary but Cruz is seeking to sway delegates.

What I find interesting is Donald Trump, the Art of the Deal, proclaims to be such a shrewd business man and able to close big deals was ill-prepared for Colorado and its delegate process. When he got his hat handed to him by Cruz in a big way, Trump did not take it like a man, he whined, blamed others and called the system unfair. I really have to wonder whether this guy has the make up to be president.

Cooper pointed out that Cruz had invested a lot of time and effort in Colorado “going out, reaching out to people who wanted to be delegates, to run the process.”

“I mean, it was a whole electoral process to get delegates,” Cooper said.

But Trump wouldn’t budge, repeating his argument that the rules were simply stacked against him. He further said he would have won Colorado had the rules not been changed last year to the current system.

“You disagree with the process as it was in Colorado,” Cooper said. “But you had months to prepare.”

The CNN anchor continued:

Your critics say it says something about your leadership ability — for somebody who touts himself as somebody who’s an organizational genius, who’s created this amazing business organization, that you couldn’t create an organization on the ground that could beat Ted Cruz’s organization.

Trump again responded by touting his overall status at the Republican frontrunner.

“Well, if my organization’s not so good, how come I’ve won many more states than him?” he said.

  • One thing for sure is if a news station says something bad about Trump, he lashes back by saying they are a lousy news station. Trump also says he’s bringing their ratings up which is true!

Trump whining About Losing in Colorado … Blames Everyone But Himself … Educate Yourself as to Why Trump Lost

WAKE UP AMERICA … DONALD TRUMP NOW WHINING ABOUT LOSING COLORADO … HE’S STARTING TO SOUND LIKE A LIBERAL DEMOCRAT.

Sorry, but I am getting really tired of Donald Trump’s act. He is beginning to make it almost impossible to like him, even if he wins. Trump is the epitome of a sore loser. When he wins everything is great, the people are great and he loves all the people of the state that some how voted for him and did not see through his act. However, when he loses … the process is unfair, its rigged and he was screwed out of votes. REALLY?

Such was the case in Colorado where Trump lost to Cruz in a major way. Trump lost his mind because he lost and has no one to blame but himself. If you don’t know the rules of a primary, don’t bother to care to know them and don’t even have a presence in a state, what the hell do you expect to happen? With all the whining that Trump has done when he loses about things not being fair, he is beginning to sound like a liberal. Of course Trump had no issue where he gained less than 50% of the vote in South Carolina or Florida and won all the delegates. So when the rules benefit Trump is a happy camper and when they do not, he’s a whiner. Wake up folks.

Take a good listen to an interview with Conservative radio host Mark Levin and US Congressman Ken Buck from Colorado.

Mark Levin radio promo

Listen to the interview HERE via Right Scoop

The Right Scoop:

Buck, who knows the system inside and out, explained to Levin why voters were not disenfranchised as Trump is suggesting and why there is no fury about the process.

Buck explained that the caucus process for Colorado has been for a long time that voters would make a non-binding straw vote. Delegates were not bound by the vote to any candidate.

However four years ago a national rule changed by the RNC that would have bound the delegates to a candidate by the vote. So the central committee in Colorado met last fall and decided to abandon the straw vote because they didn’t want delegates bound at that stage.

Buck said the last time they had a straw poll in Colorado, Rick Santorum won, but by the time they got to the convention he was no longer in the race. So if they had done what the RNC wanted, they were worried the delegates would be bound to a candidate no longer in the race.

One point that Buck made was that 40% of the delegates at the state assembly and at each of the congressional district assemblies were new voters. They had never been through this process before but they figured it out. He said they showed up at their caucus, felt strongly about Ted Cruz, got elected to the county assembly, then the state assembly and then cast their votes for the candidate. Meaning, this is not an exclusive process, but a very inclusive process.

Buck said up until a week before the state assembly, Trump had no presence in the state. And Trump chose not to speak at the convention, even though he was encouraged to do so

Daily Commentary – Tuesday, April 12, 2016 – Looks Like There May be a GOP Brokered Convention in July

  • Cruz is doing his best to make that happen! Trump would like to blame the gestapo tactics of the delegate process when it’s his own big mouth that put him in this position!
