Donald Trump's relentless assault on the rules that govern how Republicans choose their nominee is coming far too late to change what even defenders acknowledge is a complicated selection system.Trump's tirades have aired the backroom tension with the party.Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Preibus took to Trump's favorite medium, Twitter, to make the point that the nomination process has been known to all for more than a year.At the same time, however, party insiders who make the rules appear keenly aware of the emotions that Trump is stirring.Cruz is outmaneuvering Trump in lining up support among the individuals who will attend the Cleveland convention as delegates.If Trump can't clinch by the time the last group of primaries are held on June 7, then those delegates will largely be free after the first ballot at the convention to vote for the candidate of their choice.Henry Barbour, also a rules committee member, put it more simply: Trump's attack on the party and the delegate selection process is bad politics.
