The GOP — ever able to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Apparently, Donald Trump, with his soaring popularity in spite of his many controversial statements, has the GOP establishment running scared.
On Monday, December 6, 2015, the GOP establishment held a meeting to discuss the strategy of a brokered convention to discuss circumventing the will of the people as expressed in the upcoming Republican primaries.
Last week, Donald Trump said that he is preparing for the possibility of a brokered convention. Will he bolt the Party?
Recent political history in the United States tells us the following about brokered conventions and their outcomes:
Adlai Stevenson (of the 1952 Democratic Party) and Thomas E. Dewey (of the 1948 Republican Party) were the most recent "brokered convention" presidential nominees. The last winning U.S. presidential nominee produced by a brokered convention was Franklin D. Roosevelt, in 1932.
