House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told reporters that any successful effort to deprive GOP frontrunner Donald Trump of his party’s nomination could only spell good fortune for Democrats in November.
“If they reject the public will, they will really hand us a bigger victory than I’m even anticipating now, because that will be an implosion of the Republican Party,” Pelosi said.
On the other side, Pelosi predicted an undramatic convention for the Democrats, asserting that “the person who wins in the public arena will be our nominee.”
Trump is poised to go into the July RNC convention with the most delegates, but may fall short of the 1237 needed to clinch the nomination. His ally Roger Stone has warned that a “big steal” is on to deprive Trump of the nomination.
The recent success of Sen. Ted Cruz, Trump’s closest rival, in swiping Colorado’s delegates has cast into focus how important the arcane convention rules are likely to be in determining the Republican nominee.
