Stealing Away

If Hillary Clinton wins the nomination, the Republicans plan to say she stole it.

Colorado GOP chairman Dick Wadhams called it “stealing” the nomination, and he’d be happy to tell voters all about the process that put Clinton over the top. “If she wins, it’s because these non-elected delegates are going to be countering what happened in primaries and caucuses around the nation,” he said. “I think that would be very divisive for them.” Other Republicans say polls show independents don’t like the thought of superdelegates picking a nominee who trailed in the elected delegate count. “The party that created the whole open primary system and ended the deals behind closed doors and smoke-filled rooms is the one that’s kind of relying on that after all,” Bolger said.

Besides, everyone knows that the only way to really steal an election is to make sure the fix is in with the Supreme Court.
