If RNC repudiates Trump, he is still on the ballot so what does it mean?

People get to vote for him, right?


The big donors are asking the party to drop him . . .

2. Means they are already fleeing whatever fallout will come from his bombastic rhetoric.

 

This is called CYA.

3. Each state has its own ballot rules.

 

Since many states have started early voting and all have sent out absentee ballots, there is no way to change the ballot now. They made the guy and now they are stuck with him.

4. They can't repudiate him

because they know if they do all of Trump's supporters will either vote for their Democrat opponents or just stay home. This would totally kill their already slim chances of retaining control of Congress.
They're screwed either way.

5. the NRC embraced trump and they are STILL embracing trump

the morning after the 2nd disastrous debate:

Reince Priebus on Trump: 'We have a great relationship'

Washington (CNN)Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus reiterated his support Monday for embattled Republican nominee Donald Trump -- telling members of the RNC that the operation stands fully behind his campaign.

"Nothing has changed in regard with our relationship," Priebus said in a call with RNC committee members, according to sources on the call. "We are in full coordination with the Trump campaign. We have a great relationship with them. And we are going to continue to work together to make sure he wins in November."

The move to present a united front with the Trump campaign comes after earlier Monday, Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan told Republican members of the House he would no longer defend Trump, but did not formally rescind his endorsement.

Priebus convened the call with members on short notice over the weekend, and did not take any questions. His remarks lasted less than 14 minutes.
