Lindsey Graham: Donald Trump Could Spell End of GOP

Sen. Lindsey Graham is warning that Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump could destroy the GOP.

In a radio interview with John Catsimatidis on Sunday, the South Carolina Republican offered why he is supporting Sen. Ted Cruz.

“I’m supporting Cruz because I think he is a reliable conservative; I think the election will be much more competitive with Ted Cruz,” he said. “The people of New York voted overwhelmingly for Donald Trump in the Republican primary — I respect that.

“I have never been more worried about the Republican Party breaking apart than I am today.”

But Graham did concede that the excitement over Trump shows people are tired of “big-government liberalism.”

“What we have to do as Republicans is offer an alternative that’s common sense, that people can understand, that’s hopeful and optimistic, not hateful,” he said. “I pray the Republican Party can nominate somebody that can beat Hillary Clinton.

This is an issue that folks like Senator Graham are dead wrong on. There are reason that the Republican Party has less than half of Americas registered voters not counting 50% of the eligible voters that don’t bother to even register because neither of the two party’s represent them. There are reasons that the only way the Republicans can win an election is if there is a very low voter turnout. Folks like Senator Graham as well as the Tea Party folks are the tail that has been waging the dog for way to long. I am a registered Independent who usually vote for a Republican because of the even lower quality of the Democrats candidates, not because of the quality of your candidates. About half of the people who do go vote are voting against the other candidate, not because they really like the one they did vote for, it is called voting for the least of the two evils. I am a very conservative southern white Christian male whom is supposed to be the kind of person that is the base of your party but you do not represent anything except your own wallets, not the wallets of the American workers. This is why someone like Mr. Trump whom is an ego maniac is the only Republican that can beat Ms. Hillary (whom I can’t stand) this November. Mr. Graham, Mr. Trump represents far more Republicans and us Independents than a lying hypocrite and fraud like Mr. Cruz. Put it this way, I as a conservative Christian person would never ever vote for Ms. Hillary, unless Mr. Cruz is the Republican on the November ballot. Hopefully Mr. Trump is in deed the person that “ends” the so-called Republican establishment because you do not represent but about 10% of all the American people. I do not agree with several things that Mr. Trump speaks about wanting to do but I know that the Constitution will limit some of his ideas yet he has got to be better than anything the candidates the Republican establishment as been putting forward.

Trump’s Rants Anger Delegates: ‘No Way He Wins Unless He Gets 1,237’

Donald Trump’s relentless assault on the rules that govern how Republicans choose their nominee is coming far too late to change what even what defenders acknowledge is a complicated selection system.

He seems to know it, too.

Instead, his railing against a “rigged” process appears aimed at amplifying his central message to an angry electorate: America is a mess, and only Trump can clean it up.

“Politicians furiously defended the system,” Trump wrote Friday in The Wall Street Journal. He equated the party’s nomination procedures with the “unfair trade, immigration and economic policies that have also been rigged against Americans.” He added, “Let me ask America a question: How has the ‘system’ been working out for you and your family?”

Underlying the constant criticism, Trump’s goal is to rally supporters and pile up primary season victories that would bring him the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination outright before the summer convention. But it’s a tactic that Republicans say carries real risks for the billionaire businessman.

Should Trump fall short of that clinching number going into the Cleveland convention in July, they said, his rantings against the party are likely to annoy the delegates who would then decide the nominee.

“He is trying to pit voters against the very people who make the decision of whether he gets the nomination,” said Matt Borges, chairman of the Republican Party in Ohio. “If he does not arrive in Cleveland with 1,237 pledged delegates, then there is no way he gets the nomination.”

Trump’s tirades have aired the backroom tension with the party. But GOP officials are pushing against the front-runner accusations of unfairness.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus took to Trump’s favorite medium, Twitter, to make the point that the nomination process has been known to all for more than a year.

“It’s the responsibility of the campaigns to understand it,” Priebus wrote. “Complaints now? Give us all a break.”

Priebus told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that he will not allow Trump to bully him, and noted that a majority — not a plurality — rules in most aspects of governance. “The rules are set. … I’m not going to allow anyone to rewrite rules for the party.”

On Friday, the party’s chief strategist, Sean Spicer, laid out the rules for elected delegates in each of the remaining states that will hold primary contests. Spicer noted those rules were shared with all the campaigns last year, adding that “each process is easy to understand for those willing to learn it.”

At the same time, however, party insiders who make the rules appear keenly aware of the emotions that Trump is stirring.

At a rally this past week in New York, Trump said RNC members “should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this crap.”

Several of those involved in the rule-making process told The Associated Press that they believe there’s a consensus inside the party against considering changes before the convention.

“We want to avoid even the appearance that somehow, the RNC is trying to meddle or manipulate the convention process,” said Florida GOP committeeman Peter Feaman.

That isn’t likely to do much to placate Trump. He says the process should favor the candidate who wins the most votes during the primary campaign.

Trump has received about 8.2 million votes to date, about 2 million more than his closest competitor, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. “I think the vote is the thing that you count,” Trump said.

Cruz is outmaneuvering Trump in lining up support among the individuals who will attend the Cleveland convention as delegates. That’s a separate process, in which party activists seek the positions primarily through local, district and state party conventions.

If Trump can’t clinch by the time of the last group of primaries on June 7, then those delegates will largely be free after the first ballot at the convention to vote for the candidate of their choice.

“To be fair, it’s complicated for everyone,” said Ron Kaufman, a longtime member of the RNC’s standing rules committee. “And I understand why someone who’s never done it before, and hasn’t taken time to learn it, gets frustrated.”

But that frustration isn’t winning Trump any friends among the party officials who will have sway at a multi-ballot convention.

Several noted the irony of Trump’s focus on the fairness of the rules. Some states allowed him to win all of their pledged delegates even when he captured less than a majority of the vote.

Morton Blackwell, an RNC rules committee member from Virginia, said Trump is guilty of “selective moral indignation.”

Henry Barbour, another rules committee member, put it more simply: Trump’s attack on the party and the delegate selection process is bad politics. “If you want to ask a girl to the prom, you don’t tell her how ugly she is the week before,” Barbour said.
