According to a new survey of Delegates pledged to support Donald Trump, the anti-Trump movement does not have the support to deny Trump the nomination.
Politico reported: POLITICO reached out to all 112 members of the committee that will write the rules of the national GOP convention. This is the panel that anti-Trump activists hope to jam a proposal through to free convention delegates to spurn Trump and select another candidate instead.
“I support DJT 100%,” said Alabama rules committee member Laura Payne in an email. “I ran to support … Trump & to represent the voters of Alabama. It may or may not be an attempt, but the voters will prevail.”
“Trying to change the rules in mid-game because you don’t like the outcome is tantamount to saying you are going to take your ball and go home because you are losing,” said Christine Serrano-Glassner, a Rules Committee delegate from New Jersey. “I will be supporting our Nominee, Donald J. Trump.”
It was a common sentiment. Among the 32 committee members who responded, 25 said they would fight efforts to stop Trump’s nomination. . Another 33 members of the panel have been previously on record as endorsing Trump or rejecting efforts to rip the nomination away from him at the convention.
