The window to stop Donald Trump from taking the Republican nomination via elections has closed, say a group of activists, strategists and operatives. There is simply no way for another candidate to take the win away from Trump.

Not everyone agrees, however, if Trump will be able to clinch the nomination before July’s convention. Some say that a varied group of candidates will prevent Trump from getting the number of delegates he needs for a win. The rest believe he will gain the majority of delegates via the primary process.

Trump has not gotten over 50 percent of current delegate allocation,” said a Florida Republican anonymously. “The establishment will try and keep him from getting there to push for a brokered convention. It’s the only way to stop him.”

“Republicans need to figure out a way and rationale to fully support Trump assuming he does as well in upcoming contests as he did on Super Tuesday,” argued a North Carolina Republican. “The door is swinging shut on the others and will slam shut if he wins on March 15. I’m not a Trump supporter; however, he is winning fair and square. If Republican Party tries to support some disingenuous alternative, that will have the same effect as throwing a case of hand grenades in our own tent.”
