Republican Party Pushes Pledge Because They Know They Are Unpopular

The pledge that the RNC is pushing is certainly first and foremost aimed at Donald Trump. The RNC understands why Donald Trump is winning in the polls but rather then fix their "unpopularity" problem, they would rather get candidates to sign the pledge to support their unpopularity.

  • Responding to growing pressure from party donors and officials to dissuade Donald Trump from mounting an independent campaign for president, the Republican National Committee on Wednesday asked each of the party’s presidential candidates to sign a statement vowing not to run as a third-party candidate.
  • With little warning, committee officials called and emailed campaign representatives requesting that they put in writing what every candidate, except for Trump, has already pledged to do.
  • “I –––––– affirm that if I do not win the 2016 Republican nomination for president of the United States I will endorse the 2016 Republican presidential nominee regardless of who it is,” the document, on RNC letterhead, states. “I further pledge that I will not seek to run as an independent or write-in candidate nor will I seek or accept the nomination for president of any other party.”
