It cuts both ways

This ruling, if it passes on the convention floor, will bind the hands of party insiders to allocate delegates according to the popular vote. This year, it might have been to their advantage, but in other years they have enjoyed the flexibility of allocating their delegates the way they pleased, regardless of the popular vote. As the liberty movement gains momentum, a ruling like this will make it that much more difficult for the establishment to disenfranchise supporters of candidates they do not favor.
