    So who finds this acceptable?

    The South Carolina Republican Party is considering canceling its primary in 2020, and a few members of the New Hampshire state GOP have been pushing to amend the organization's bylaws to allow the party to endorse the president. This comes amid news this week that the Trump re-election campaign will merge with the Republican National Committee--a move that is designed to streamline resources ahead of a highly competitive re-election fight but also demonstrates Trump's dominance over the party.

    Funny, I thought the GOP was against 'rigging the system' like Hillary supposedly did against Bernie. My my, how the acrid stench of hypocrisy just flows from the GOP.

    MAGA - many are gullible always.

    I can't believe the depths the party is going to in order to protect this ignorant, incompetent bozo. It's mind-boggling, the guy is a total moron.

    Democrats will find this to be more than acceptable.

    And the Reds want to talk about voter fraud and disenchanfrisement by the Blues? Do they not just realize that they essentially removed the people's 15A and 19A rights by doing this?

    Such sheer, unfathomable idiocy.

    Hillary had a challenger, she and the DNC cheated him out of the nomination.

    No she didn’t. Performing slightly better in a primary debate doesn’t move the needle by 10 percentage points.

    To some extent yes. He was probably going to lose anyway, and it is not clear whether Hillary was behind the scenes directing this or whether apparatchiks of the Democratic party doing it assuming they knew best. Had Hillary been smart, though, Bernie would have been her VP choice. FWIW I supported Bernie, but would have taken Hillary any day over Trump.

    A GOP candidate who opposes the Trump republican brand will run as an independent if for nothing else but to sink him and attempt to bring the GOP back from the entire mess that is Trump.

    You don't know yet. And that's the point. There is no constitutional argument or requirement for a political party to must support the incumbent. Case in point: Robert Kennedy ran against Lyndon Johnson in 1968, Reagan ran against Ford in 1976, Ed Kennedy ran against Carter in 1980, and Pat Buchanan ran against Bush in 1988.

    All of these were people in their own respective parties running against the sitting POTUS.

    It was left to the primaries on who would win the nomination outright, not let the states deny the voters of their right to vote. That spits in the face of the 15A, 19A, and 26A. No doubt this could be challenged in court.

    BL.
