West Michigan Professor Discusses What A Contested Convention Really Is
Lately, GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump hasn't been giving a thumbs up to the party over the primary and delegate process. Western Michigan University political science professor Peter Wielhouwer discussed with WBCK what a contested GOP convention might look like and how it would be handled.
If anything, we learn that some of the rules for such a situation aren't completely spelled out.
This week, Trump even made public remarks comparing his situation - a front-runner who still may not have enough delegates to win the nomination outright - to that of Bernie Sanders.
"Why doesn't he have a chance? Because the system is corrupt. And it's worse on the Republican side, because I'm up millions of votes on Cruz," Trump was quoted by the website Bustle, among others.
