Whoa! While I would hate to see Trump in office, this amendment is a huge disservice to everyone.
Why?

So the people who are supposed to carry the votes of their local voters to the election are allowed to change them for religious reason?

Might as well cancel the elections.

I don’t think they would ever stand up as a majority to shout down the extreme right minority within their party.

For example the drug issue, the Dems seem to want to sit on their hands the GOP could make it a big government issue. That would get them both the youth and minority vote.

Might as well just vote for the robot (Clinton). It all goes to show that what the people want and vote for has meant nothing for a very long time.

If this is going to be allowed, I think we will see Cruz get the nomination. Congrats, looks like the liberals here are going to get their wish.

You do realize that Trump did not garner the majority of Republican voters, just primary delegates.

The will of the people was not at all clear.

RE: Worrying About a Trump Victory? Don't.
Trump has funneled over 6 million in campaign funds back into his companies, so all of you out there that support this billionaire, keep giving till it hurts.

"Through the end of May, Trump's campaign had plunged at least $6.2 million back into Trump corporate products and services, a review of Federal Election Commission filings shows. That’s about 10 percent of his total campaign expenditures."

Doesn’t that just piss you off? I bet you thought he was going to take care of the little guy, no one thought he meant his son.

"Even $4.7 million the campaign has spent on hats and T-shirts has a tie to Trump. The provider, Ace Specialties, is owned by a board member of son Eric Trump’s charitable foundation."
