TRUMP LAST MAN STANDING STILL NEEDS TO REACH 1237 DELEGATES

States that still need to hold elections NE, WV, OR, WA, CA, MT, NJ, NM, SD voters still need to vote in these states.

Trump now has 1053 delegates and it’s inconceivable that from the remaining 571 he won’t get the 184 delegates he’s required to reach 1237.
If you think presumptive nominee means Trump has it in the bag WRONG the delegates from the remaining states that need to have their elections could be up for grabs to highest bidder. Also candidates that have dropped out names may still be on ballots.
Another Trump Nominee Problem:
The nominee's choice for a running mate is still technically decided by an independent delegate vote. Delegates have no obligation to support the nominee's choice.
Trump’s choice for VP matters because he will have less delegate support
based on the fact that the crowded field split up the delegate vote and because many Republicans attending as bound "Trump delegates" still prefer other candidates.
If Trump simply picks an "acceptable" running mate acceptable to the base, delegates would likely defer to the choice, as they have for past nominees.
