Smerconish Presses RNC Spox on Trump’s Complaints: Without His Constituency ‘You Lose’
On CNN this morning, Michael Smerconish confronted RNC chief strategist and communications director Sean Spicer about the validity of Donald Trump‘s complaints about a “rigged” delegate system.
Spicer insisted that the system is a “completely fair” one that has so far benefitted Trump and noted how candidates tend not to complain about states “until they lose them.”
Smerconish suggested Trump has a point about states overturning the will of the voters and pressed Spicer to say that the GOP nominee should be the person with the most delegates.
Spicer made it clear again that a majority of delegates clinches who the nominee is, not a plurality, likening it to giving someone a Powerball win if they get 5 out of 6 numbers right.
Smerconish offered him this advice/possible warning about the dangers of delegates denying Trump: “If you come out of Cleveland and you don’t have this guy’s constituency, you will lose in the fall.”
