Romney: Three-Man Race Guarantees Trump the GOP Nomination

Mitt Romney is warning his fellow Republicans that Donald Trump is certain to win the party’s presidential nomination if neither Ted Cruz nor John Kasich drops out of the race.

Newsmax reported that the former Massachusetts governor, who lost to President Obama in the 2012 general election, believes Trump has no chance of defeating likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. “If (Kasich and Cruz) are both going at it aggressively until the very end, then I think Trump gets it on the first ballot,” Romney said on “The David Gregory Show,” according to CNN.

Trump has led the GOP contest since last summer. Even before Tuesday’s New York primary, he held a large lead in national-convention delegates over his two rivals. Cruz is the only other candidate who could earn enough delegates to challenge the billionaire real-estate developer on the first ballot at the national convention in July.

Kasich recently explained in a CBS News interview that he could capture the nomination on the second or subsequent ballots, if Trump does not amass the 1,237 delegates necessary to secure a victory in the first round of voting. Polls indicate the Ohio governor would do better than Trump or Cruz in a general-election contest against Clinton.
