Stopping Trump at convention looks like a long shot
Some conservatives still plotting to stop Trump at GOP conventionWhat is more likely is that supporters of Ted Cruz may be able to get conservative positions into the GOP platform. Those positions may be different from what Trump is espousing at any given moment. The Cruz supporters who are pledged to vote for Trump on the first ballot are not pledged to support his policy positions in fights over the platform.
Angered by the presumptive nominee's shifting views and how little he discusses social issues, conservatives across the country are studying the party rule book for last-ditch moves they could make when the convention begins in Cleveland.
