With the chances of a contested convention becoming a real possibility when the GOP meets in July, and reports that the Republican establishment is banking on a second or more round of balloting in Cleveland, some Republican voters are already starting to voice their frustration with the process already unfolding.
Larry Wayne Linsey, who said in a video he’s “been a Republican” all his life, voiced his opposition to the behind closed doors dealings of the Republican Party over the weekend. The Coloradan videotaped himself burning his Republican Party voter registration. “Republican Party take note,” the man said adding, “I think you’re going to see a whole lot more of these…I’m voting for Trump. The hell with the Republican Party.”

Linsey was admittedly upset with the Colorado Republican Party. In August of 2015, CO Republican Party leaders cancelled the planned CO caucus for 2016. As a result of the cancellation, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz was able to politic directly with CO delegates. The Texas senator did just that and was awarded all 34 of CO’s delegates on Saturday. The Denver Post called it, “a stunning rebuke of Republican front-runner Donald Trump.”
Trump voiced his displeasure with the CO Republican Party on Twitter by tweeting;
The people of Colorado had their vote taken away from them by the phony politicians. Biggest story in politics. This will not be allowed!

The tweet and anger resonated with Linsey, whose video was recently shared online by Ann Coulter of Fox News, also a loyal Trump supporter. As a result of the CO Republican Party’s decision to award Cruz all of its convention delegates, the possibility of a contested GOP convention in July is looking more like a probability.
