    In Rubio's farewell speech, he said something to he effect that Trump was destroying the conservative movement in this country.

    That's where one of the big problem lies. Politicians serving conservatism instead of the people.

    There's a HUGE crowd of voters saying, "We know a winner when we see one!" and the R party doesn't understand it.

    Trump's current vote count of 40% of less than 1/2 the electorate doesn't exactly qualify as a "HUGE" electoral mandate to me. He has less popular support than any leading R candidate since the establishment of the modern republican primary system. As much as his supporters want to claim otherwise, he simply has not demonstrated that he is "the people's choice."

    If Trump enters the convention with less than a majority of the vote in the primaries and less than a majority of the delegates does that mean that his supporters should be allowed to shout down the rest of the party? Should the prospect of riots by a MINORITY change what the rest of the party does? If he doesn't accomplish what the 160 year old rules stipulate, should the rules simply change so he wins? What is the difference between this and the simpletons who advocate for a popular vote general election?

    This after the Elites have spent how many millions backing other candidates? :scratch Just wondering, how much support do the other candidates have after they have received these millions? How many favors do they owe for these millions? How much will these favors cost the taxpayers?

    No, those that don't like Trump just refuse to admit he's winning. They see that he's just messing up the election by getting most of the votes and delegates.

    Trump has received nearly 7.6 million votes. Romney only got slightly over 10 million during his entire primary. These a-hole politicians continuously cry about how many are voting against Trump, while completely ignoring the fact that an even larger number are voting against them.

    Field, donating things like that in to the discussion. It makes it hard for a few and I worry about their heads exploding.

    The demonstrations and behavior are going to push Trump up even further have a feeling. Lots of people are not going to put up with the tactics.

    Yes I do. I liked Marco - right behind Cruz. But Marco has been politician non grata here in the State of Florida since 2013. The gang of 8 was his albatros

    The State of Florida has moved on - we have Carlso Lopez-Cantera ready to take Marco's US Senate seat and Adam Putnam is ready to be the next Governor.
