PA Could Make Trump the GOP Nominee (VIDEO)

Pennsylvania could make the difference between Donald Trump winning or losing the Republican presidential nomination.

How so? Those soon-to-be infamous 54 unbound delegates.

As MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki explained first in the Tweet below and then in the video above, if PA’s unbound delegates turn to Trump en masse, it may get him to the 1,237 threshold before the RNC Convention in Cleveland.

“If [Trump] got 120 out of California, a rough estimate, 12 out of New Mexico and 51 out of New Jersey, he’d be sitting at 1199, you say he’s short. We have the open convention. Here’s the thing,” Kornacki states.

“17 [pledged delegates] in Pennsylvania, that real number is 71,” he continues. “There are 54 unbound delegates in Pennsylvania. Right now, the majority of candidates running to be unbound delegates in Pennsylvania are saying publicly on the record they will go with whatever candidate wins their state. Donald Trump is leading Pennsylvania by more than 20 points right now. He could easily get the lion’s share of those and that could put him over 1,237, a win in Indiana could put him over 1,237. A better showing in the northeast could get him closer, there are many pathways.”

It is worth pointing out that while many delegates are pledging support for a specific candidate or the one that wins their district, it is in their interest to hold out their support if Trump does not reach 1,237 by June 7th.

The next few weeks (or even months) could prove not only highly intriguing but potentially historic for the Keystone State.

  1. Why does the Commonwealth allow Donald Trump to use the Farm Show for his rally on Thursday? I’m sure he will pay, but that offends me, Donald Trump offends me. How will the workers feel seeing a bigoted millionaire that could give two cents for what they think. Did the Honorable Secretary of Agriculture allow this – or did the Executive Director of the Farm Show allow this? In any case, it sucks! I would love to know how the Sec and the ED are registered.

  2. I am a strong supporter of Dr. Ben Carson, and literally cried when he got off the campaign trail. I had been talking down Donald Trump and posted hundreds of negative comments about him, so when Dr. Ben endorsed him one could have knocked me over with a feather, but, because of my deep trust and confidence in Dr. Ben, I started to very carefully listen to Dr. Ben’s reasoning and to Donald Trump himself instead of to the media, the “never Trump” people, and other candidates. Like Dr. Carson said in his endorsement speech, I also was surprised to see how much Donald Trump, Dr. Carson and I share philosophically and spiritually. I am proud to be on the Trump Train now.
