UPDATE! RNC Rules Rumor in Tampa: Attempt Fails to Change Nominations Rule From 5 State Plurality to 10 States

UPDATE 2! As noted by DP's tsai3904 and We the People below in the comments, here's Politico's report on this.

UPDATE 1! Just got the following message!

"Proposal to change plurality requirement from 5 to 10 failed!"


From my friend in Tampa:

"Rumor is RNC plans to make the nomination rule for this convention be plurality from 15 states instead of 5."

so that means Romney isn't going to win?

Whether or not you think the media has been fair, Romney won the primaries and that phase is over. He will be the nominee.

He's the presumptous nominee

Because the media has been promoting him as such for months, even though the vote hasn't even happened yet. You don't know he will win because we haven't voted, so you're presumptuous too.

The good news is the media is losing their grip, and so are you.

People are waking up to the fraud perpetrated by the media.

oh please

The media has been promoting him as the winner because he won. The official vote on Monday is only a formality because he collected massive numbers of delegates by winning so many states. Romney won the primaries and got the vast majority of the delegates. They are going to vote for him on Monday. There will be no surprise winner.

You can't win until the votes are counted.

That's a fact.

President Warren Harding began the RNC with only 65 delegates supporting him, and ended up winning.

Another fact.

So take your assumptions and shove them.

well good luck with that

Warren Harding had a chance because there were 10 other people all splitting the vote. If Herman Cain, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, and Mitt Romney were all splitting the non-Paul delegate slots, then someone with Ron Paul's delegate numbers could have a chance in a brokered convention. But that's not what's going on here. I'm making an assumption that a football team winning by 48 with 30 seconds left will win the game. I am comfortable going Sharpie on this one.

The American people have no other choice than Ron Paul

Obama and Romney are essentially the same. So, we will do whatever it takes against all odds.

...and we're dumping the deceptive media along the way, which has been manipulating elections for decades with their assumptions rather than reporting facts.

It's the duty of the press to inform the people

And right from the beginning, the very first straw poll in Iowa, the media told the people Ron Paul could not win, and ignored him even though he practically tied for first.

And that was only the beginning, the media propaganda got much worse...

People only vote for someone they believe is running, and they can only do that if they are informed. The media did everything to dis-inform the people about Ron Paul, while propping up all the other candidates, except Gary Johnson.

Would you expect anything less from

these corrupt, cheating, criminals?

Whatever evil these wicked do......

it will backfire on them!
We are going to win this!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

My suspicion is that...

My suspicion is that this is why some contested Paul delegates will be seated.
