Why Stopping Trump at the Convention Won’t Be Easy


General note:  In both parties, both the primaries and the conventions are governed by a patchwork of rules that are constantly changing and that are the product of this or that power group wanting to make this or that outcome more likely in some past scenario.  The Republican Party’s Rule 40, a temporary rule written in 2012 for Romney’s convenience (perfect example of that above-mentioned phenomenon), which would limit the contest to Trump and maybe Cruz, can be changed at the outset of the Convention by the Rules Committee, but changing it without sparking a big revolt would be easier said than done.
