RNC member predicts: Trump can win with 1,100 delegates

by PETE KASPEROWICZ  |  published on April 13, 2016

Republican National Committee member Randy Evans predicted Wednesday that Donald Trump would likely be able to secure the Republican nomination if he captures anything more than 1,100 delegates, short of the 1,237 delegates needed for a simple majority.

“If Donald Trump exceeds 1,100 votes, he will become the nominee even though he may not have 1,237,” Evans said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

The RNC stressed Wednesday morning that under the rules, 1,237 delegates are still needed to officially clinch the nomination, and said Evans’ comments are more of a comment on what might happen in the hypothetical situation in which Trump falls just short.

Evans’ comment could be good news for Trump if it’s a sentiment shared by other RNC members, since Trump is at risk of falling short of a majority of delegates by the time of the convention in July. But Evans also warned that if Trump slips much more, the nomination would likely fall to someone else.


    I will write Trump on my ballot if I have to.

    Well WE all have seen this MOVIE since 2008…..ONLY this tome It will be that T-RUMP WHINES himself into a nomination and LOSES the General Election….same old same old ….WHAT IN H-LL is wrong with these IDIOTS???

  • ADRoberts

    They are the party of CAVE. Now they are planning to cave to a fake conservative who is still a flaming liberal.

  • Myrtle Linder

    I, too, think we have enough fools to elect him!!

    • Barry Dietsche

      Myrtle, he the one man who knows enough about big money to turn this country around and get on strong financial footing again IF it’s not already too late. AND He loves his country, more than himself. I think history will show that. He is very loyal to his friends and his country.
      The one biggest threat we have is the bubble the stock market has created. Of course, Muslims and illegals are another And this frickin corrupt political system, which he will shatter, if we stand behind him.

        Well said Barry–he alone has the skills and resolve to do the right thing for the CITIZENS of OUR COUNTRY. He is exactly who we need at this time and compared to the other contenders–there is no comparison…..period.

        • Myrtle Linder

          Really and truly? He is not GOD, he is only a man and you do not know the intelligence of all people because you are not GOD, either

          • CHELONIA GREEN

            Take your own advice you are not God either yet you think people who vote for Trump are fools. Why because we have different views on what the country needs?

          • Myrtle Linder

            No, I am not GOD, I am a sinner who loves GOD but do not always make the right decisions, because I am a weak sinner and as such do make mistakes..

            You are right Obama is a Muslim dictator and has done all in his power to ruin the USA because he hates the Christians here. As a Christian, and have all faith in GOD and HIS SON, I do think Christians are the only ones who can get our country straightened out. I will always vote for a Christian if there is one available, to vote for. That is not always the case, so then I vote for whoever I think will do the best job, never because he is a friend or because I know them, personally.

            You get upset at me calling someone a fool, but not personally, then I think of how many voted to put the anti-CHRIS,T Obama, into office in a previously Christian Country, so we do have a lot of them.

          • CHELONIA GREEN

            Thank you for being honest and I agree there were and still are fools that put Odumbo in the WH because he is Black and will hope to put Killary in there because she is a women. I think you probably are for Cruz and so was I until he stated in a interview he would close the border but give a path to citizenship. I don’t think law breakers should be given a reward and I think the $343 billion/yr we spend on them can be better spent on America and it’s people first. After he made that comment and then recently to say that Trump supporters are low info voters that was it. I’m very well educated and informed on what’s going on and for him to say that why should I vote for him with that attitude? Take care.

          • Myrtle Linder

            I think that is It seem enough to tell us what they can and will don and forget their hatred for each other. a mistake for the candidates to put each other down like they do, it just goes against them. Thank for your answer, take care and Good Night!!!

      • Myrtle Linder

        Did you day “the one man”? Is he the only one? If he is, he is what we need for r the president of the USA,BUT I don’t think he is the only one with this intelligence, even though he is very intelligent, and yes, wealthy, maybe even a little greedy!!! He want the whole deal, he doesn’t get my vote.

        We need to understand whose good he is looking for, mainly the good for Trump or the good for the USA and the people, he is only one of the people. What is good for him, may possibly, not be good for the rest of us,and he knows what is good for him. So many of our people practically worship these who are rich.I am not rich, but I do not go hungry and do not think any more of the super rich than I do the poor,because, even I am as poor as the church mice.


          Why are you poor? Is it because the US has been under a Muslim dictator who hates the people and this country? Cruz, Sanders and Hillary are all part of the establishment so maybe you are for one of the established. More than enough idiots voted for a man because he was Black so why not give a wealthy non politician a chance? We have nothing more to lose at this point.

  • gf

    This is an election, like we have not seen since Ronald Reagan. The future, of the USA, and GOP, is at stake. If Donald J. Trump, is not the nominee. The nation, and GOP are screwed.

    • Lawrence Curran

      Would you have Hillary , Jackass.

      • Myrtle Linder

        Donald J Trump has a lot of people snowed, even though teh democrats are worse!!

  • egalicki

    The republican establishment is determined to commit suicide and projectile vomit hellory into the white house because of their determination to retain their power, privileges, and perks.

    • mike

      And may they all burn in hell for it

      • Myrtle Linder

        I certainly hope not, I have children, grandchildren and great grandchildren who I hope are in heaven with me and their grandad!!

        • mike

          We are talking about the repubs in congress.Are you one of them.If not this wasn’t directed at you

  • Roy

    If the RNC had resisted Obummer as much as they are resisting Trump we would not be in the situation we are. I hope the elitist frogs will give up their attempt to disenfranchise millions of voters for the singular purpose of extending their own illegal control. If they don’t I fear that millions of Patriots will bring their guns to town.

    • Bonnie Schulte

      Roy, I believe you are right.

    • The Atheist Libertarian

      Count on it. We’re done with the establishment…. forever.

      • The Redhawk

        OH and HILLARY is NOT establishment?? Ready to Kiss her ringed A-s????

        • The Atheist Libertarian

          Phukkkk Hillary. Straight to Hellllll. and Phukkkk YOU. ( ° ͜ʖ͡°)╭∩╮


          • The Redhawk

    • used_to_be_a_liberal

      I understand the sentiment, however, the day that happens, will be the start of the worst carnage that this country has ever seen, it will make the civil war look like a Sunday Picnic.

    • The Redhawk
