It comes as no surprise that Trump has rubbed many people the wrong way. He has made a slew of offensive comments during his campaign that have been targeted at race, women, ethnicity, religion - the list goes on and on.
He has been lauded by supporters for speaking his mind, but for a presidential candidate that may not be the wisest choice, especially if he plans to govern a diverse nation of over 324 million people.
Although he is currently the only Republican left in the running, many GOP delegates are incredibly unhappy with being represented by the former Apprentice celebrity. Many believed his campaign would collapse on its own, but with less than a month left until the Republican National Convention, Trump shows no signs of stopping.
The solution for this unhappy faction of the Republican party? Form an all-out delegate revolt at the RNC in Cleveland.
Confused? You're not alone.
The delegate revolt, or "Convention of Conscious" as coined by members of the Republican party such as Bill Kristol, is an idea being heavily considered, yet debated due to the lack of experience with an event or "emergency" like this in the past. Most likely, the revolt will consist of delegates casting their vote to back a candidate that already has dropped out of the race, who they feel would better represent the ideals of the party.
This is where it get's more confusing, even for the Republican delegates themselves. There is wide debate as to whether a delegate is legally bound to vote for a candidate at the convention. Voting laws vary from state-to-state, which also adds to the confusion.
Kendal Unruh, a Colorado delegate who was bound to Ted Cruz, told ABC News that she plans to introduce a clause to the rest of the GOP Rules Committee that would permit delegates bound to "vote their conscience" rather than their bound candidate, who for many is Trump.
In response to her seemingly radical proposition, Unruh said "All I'm doing is adapting to the circumstances. I certainly believe Trump's demagogic racist comments are hurting him."
The current rules require that the convention secretary record only bound votes, even if a delegate casts a ballot for a different candidate. To have Unruh's clause passed, 112 delegates from the Rules Committee would have to approve it to bring it to the floor, followed by a majority vote. In sum, it is a whole lot of work.
Even RNC Rules expert Jim Bopp stated "I would put money on no rules changes that would affect the outcome of the nominating process."
Whether the #delegaterevolt is effective, or even a wise move is largely attributed to the timing. Pivotal members of the Democratic Party, including President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Elizabeth Warren all have publicly supported Hillary Clinton and criticized Donald Trump. A more unified Democratic Party poses a serious threat to the increasingly divided GOP, with Republicans conflicted in endorsing Trump partly because they disapprove of his unfiltered comments.
This 2016 election has already been filled with it's own share of surprises, and this #delegaterevolt stands to create a serious plot twist to all the hype and drama. I think the ultimate takeaway from all of this is, expect the unexpected.
