the voice of the voters

Priebus: the delegates choose the
nominee but they are chosen by the people
Todd: are there any rules at all?
Priebus: I have no idea
Todd: are you really head of the RNC?
Priebus: the old rules were written
by Romney and he's an idiot
Todd: I see
Priebus: the new rules will be
written by smart people like Donald
Trump and Ted and Cruz

delegate process – is that fair that
some Trump delegates hate him?

gamed the system

late win from Udall

Benson: conservative talk radio
has been hammering Trump for weeks!

can't stop Trump
Brooks: the only way he can be
stopped is if kills a guy on live tv
Todd: they're trying to game
the system to stop him
Walter: they either wreck the party
with Trump or without him
Walter: of course they can stop him –
but it will look unfair and he will
take his followers with him
Todd: what do folks at the
Pentagon think of all this?
Cooper: they're appalled
Cooper: I was on a battleship
and they're shocked
Todd: that makes sense
Cooper: contrast Trump with the
mature statesman Barack Obama
Cooper: he's scaring the Beltway
with nuke talk
Todd: do people like Cruz?
Benson: no the just they hate Trump
Trump: so why not support Jon Kasich?
Benson: because they're desperate to stop Donald Trump
Trump: so who will be the nominee?
Brooks: it will be Trump and it will
be a disaster may he rot in hell
Todd: omg will Trump destroy
the Republican party?
[ break ]
Todd: welcome Senator Johnson
Johnson: nice to be here Ted
Todd: who are you voting for?
Johsnon: hell if I know

outsider like the Donald

Johnson yes I am
Johnson: Mitt Romney told me
he would be a one-term president
Johnson: I've decided not to vote for Clinton
Todd: what advice would you
give Trump to win?
Johnson: show the voters your
vision of how to defeat Clinton
because it won't be easy
Todd: true enough
Todd: if Garland were replacing a
liberal would you have a vote?
Johnson: no it's a firm principle
Todd: so no votes on a nominee
ever in 8th year of a Presidency
Johnson: no he just doesn't
love guns enough
Todd: thanks for coming
Johnson: you too
[ break ]
Sanders: we've won 6 out of 7 caucuses
so super delegates should vote for us
Todd: if superdelegates did what Sanders
wants she would increase her lead lol
Walter: he's very impressive
but Sanders can't win – it's math
Todd: Todd: he's toast isn't he
Walter: democrats are having a
skirmish but the GOP is having nuclear war
Benson: in 1910 Milwaukee
elected a socialist mayor
Brooks: Sanders voted in the election
Brooks: Clinton is also unpopular
Cooper: you asked Clinton about abortion
and she gave a thorough informed answer
and Trump is asked the same and sounds
like a crazy person
Cooper: Trump is nuts which benefits Hillary
Todd: GOP delegates may see
this and reject Trump
Walter: Republicans don't want to
win in 2016 – they want guys who share
their wacko values like Trump
Cooper: well then they will lose again
Todd: and that's another
episode of Meet The Press
