This is What a Contested Convention Would Look Like

We're just six days away from a series of primaries in winner take all states, including Florida and Ohio. Although Trump is currently leading in the delegate count, it's only by a slim margin. One of the GOP candidates must secure 1,237 delegates in order to lock-in the nomination. Based on the number of states left there is potential no one, not even Trump, will reach the proper threshold, sending Republicans to a contested convention in Cleveland.
