20. Don't forget the GOP has at least 2 chances to change the rules...

... Before the convention.

Also don't forget that the chairman of the RNC is Speaker Paul Ryan.

Also don't forget that if the rules are changed and the nomination is stolen from Donald Trump, he's sure to run as a third party candidate.

Also don't forget that if Trump can win a few states as an independent, like say PA, NY, and NJ, it's possible that no candidate will win a majority of electoral votes and the House of Representatives will choose the next President.

Also don't forget that to avoid being voted out for stealing the election, Congress may well choose not to appoint anyone.

In which case Speaker of the House Paul Ryan inherits the job, assuming he is reelected as Speaker in January.

So, what happens to those delegates depends a whole lot on how badly former Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan wants to be President....

Jesus Christ, sometimes my imagination frightens me.
