It's it's this next segment fascinating the race for the GOP nomination neck and neck there's no clear front runner and some say if it stays this way there may be a brokered convention or an open convention in August but not Karl Rove he said this last week.
Or you now suggesting are you now willing to say this is a possible I don't know I think it is a big it is about as remote as life on Pluto.
-- -- column about it on rove dot com pretty good and well our next guest says rove is wrong joining me now political strategist Roger Stone you disagree with.
Mister -- yeah won't be the first time Karl's been wrong.
I Rhode -- -- Huffington Post this week that I thought it was very possible not likely -- very possible.
To have either a brokered convention meaning a convention in which.
No one has enough votes on the first ballot and therefore some combination of these candidates form a ticket to to produce a nominee.
Or an open convention which a candidate.
Emerges in late primaries big late primaries California and New Jersey New York and goes to convention in the dark horse I think both of them are.
And are medically possible so -- those says the math doesn't add up you disagree with that.
Guy is such a disagreement wells threshold issue for -- I think you have proportional more proportional primaries this time than we had four years ago so.
For example in Georgia even if Newt Gingrich were to win Georgia or Rick Santorum they won't sweep all the delegates they'll be.
Proportional delegates for Romney and the other candidate county by county -- -- congressional district by congressional dispute and it exactly as are some of these folks like Ron Paul can get a number of these delegates without actually winning those states right so continuing to split the field to be from the beginning Mitt Romney heads had had an enormous advantage of split opposition.
The fact that conservatives have been I don't know able to coalesce around any one candidate has allowed him to win a plurality but Mitt -- he's never gotten 50%.
In any primary.
Why are we talking about this is it because there is according to some of his dissatisfaction.
With the Republican race the Republican field right now and therefore.
There's a sort of romanticism to -- idea that suddenly at the last minute Governor Christie could throw his hat in the ring or.
Governor Jeb Bush could throw his hat in the -- Sarah Palin her hat into the ring Donald Trump I mean -- seems to me that that there's great dissatisfaction with these candidates.
One poll showed that 63% of Republicans wish.
There was another candidate.
And -- electability question the inevitability.
And the electability of Mitt Romney project please come into question now -- unfavorable ratings.
-- -- his favorable so I think the party's not in love with any these candidates.
And they are in love with the idea of beating Barack Obama so -- -- candidate like a Chris Christie.
Or Mitch Daniels or -- Donald Trump emerge -- You could have a lot of excitement so bottom line you disagree with -- it's a possibility of brokered or open can do it I would have to -- -- that it is unlikely but if you sit down with the calendar and a calculator and the numbers would big states like New York in New Jersey.
Being winner take call and Texas where -- in -- still leads.
It's entirely possible fascinating Roger Stone great to see this morning we appreciate -- repeatedly coming.
