Can Delegates Abstain from voting at the National Convention even if they are bound to a certain candidate?Submitted by PA Paul Pal on Sun, 04/22/2012 - 21:34
It seems that Teddy Roosevelt ordered his delegates to abstain from voting for Taft in 1912:
"He (Roosevelt) ordered his delegates to abstain from voting in rebuke of Taft's "steamroller tactics".
Maybe delegates who support Ron Paul in states where they are bound in early rounds of voting should consider this strategy to keep Romney from reaching 1144.
They could then vote for Ron Paul in later Rounds.
