The GOP still has many tricks up its sleeves that it could use to keep the nomination out of Trump’s hands. For now, the details are mostly arbitrary and theoretical.
But it remains to be seen how far they will actually go in using their leverage to alter the results of this race, even as a coordinated effort is underway. Suffice to say, the political system is quite gamed, and tilted heavily towards a house win – the House that GOP built.
Regardless, things have gotten rather ridiculous and hypocritical.
