Delegate Votes at the ConventionSubmitted by DuaneK36 on Thu, 05/03/2012 - 15:53
A delegate can vote for whomever they wish to. Delegates are chosen by their peers to represent them. Trust is put in the delegates to make a decision in the best interest of the party and the nation.
Any delegate may change his preference of nominee between time of of State appointment and time of convention. What if a delegate was pledged to one nominee, but found information about corrupt business practices, corrupt associations and contacts.
What if a delegate realizes that corrupt powers have used the media to wrongfully push that nominee on the public through deception? It would be that delegates job to make sure said corrupt nominee is not selected. And the system certainly allows for that.
It is our delegates' jobs to do what is right for the party and the country.
As far as being outnumbered..it is not over yet. Keep spreading the message. Any reasonable individual who is willing to look at information the "news" witholds, will without a doubt not be voting for Romney at the convention, no matter who they were pledged to. Ultimately, a delegate cannot be forced or cohersed to vote a certain way. Sorry, but this is still America.
