Donald Trump has taken a particularly hard beating from the mainstream press this week. After a much-maligned response to the Orlando terrorist attack, establishment Republicans are attempting to cash in on the negative press in order to grow support for their own anti-Trump agenda at the Republican convention.
Given the strife, a growing group of anti-Trump delegates is convinced that enough like-minded Republicans will band together in the next month to change party rules and allow delegates to vote for whomever they want at the convention, regardless of who won state caucuses or primaries.
The new push is being run by people who can actually make changes to party rules, rather than by pundits and media figures who have been pining for a Trump alternative. Many of the delegates involved supported Sen. Ted Cruz (Tex.) in the primary race but say they are not taking cues from any of Trump’s vanquished opponents.
“This literally is an ‘Anybody but Trump’ movement,” said Kendal Unruh, a Republican delegate from Colorado who is leading the campaign. “Nobody has any idea who is going to step in and be the nominee, but we’re not worried about that. We’re just doing that job to make sure that he’s not the face of our party.”
It's fitting that the so-called conservative Republicans in charge of the party are taking cues from the liberal media in order to dump Trump. They care more about remaining the kingmakers of their own party than they do with conservative values — not to mention democracy.

Then the GOP will have a WAR on their hands.
Well here is the reality, for some reason Kendal thinks 13% is the majority of the party, some where down the line her and the other Cruzers have convinced themselves that they are the majority(not even close) of Republicans. What I find funny is not only will Ted Cruz lose, he will suffer a more humiliating defeat then he did before. Ted is a snake, the whole time he has been putting these terds up to it while he is quit and now trying to put a big show on in Congress to try and muster your support after he breaks it off in your ass. Trump Supporters Kendal is abusing her power and should be removed as well as the others who have tried to arrogantly choose who they think is right for you. All Trump supporters are organizing, we will write Trump’s name in and vote the hacks out in each state, then leave the party. What good is a party if they cheat you worse than the democrats cheat everybody. This is the ways of socialism and I will not have no part nor any of the thousands of people who are taking this route.
The ruling group are so used to it all being under their control and the people just being angry and silent to them. Trump is the best choice for just that reason. NO MORE STATUS QUO!
These are precisely the people the VOTERS are REJECTING. They are tired of the ELITE lying to them and betraying them for decades. They would rather have Hillary win than work with Trump. They are no better than Hillary. Rubio in paritulcuar is humoerous. There is NO WAY he can strip Hillary of seurity and inteliegnece information. It is useless handwaving totry and get back into the good grace of the state of Florida voters HE BETRAYED. Flying around on Air Force One with Obama during the Orlando shooting and hanging out with Biden was just a plotting meeting. Little Marco doesn’t fool anyone. HE wants to squeeze the voters to choose between him and a Democrat. Floridians VOTE FOR THE DEMOCRAT! NO one else wants Little Marco so he figures what do I have to lose? I’m trashed anyway! I miss my GOP credit card and the woman won’t want me because I’m no longer a Senator and can’t afford to shack up with them on my dime! Just sickening.
If the GOP ELITE try to take TRUMP out, that is the END of the GOP. They will be no better than Director Comey and Hilary with her email server problems or Obama for that matter issuing another unConstitutional edict. There is hardly ANY difference between the GOP ELITE and the Democrats and WHY they are being REJECTED by the VOTERS!
This is why we have to defeat the Republicans before we can defeat the Democrats.
Just so that you don’t get accused of being “f**e news,” the popular vote was won 48.2% to 46.1% by Clinton (2.86 million votes). This figure probably wasn’t available at the time of the above article.
