With these reforms, the GOP could quietly influence the primary process. Whereas a brokered convention would have dramatic consequences, superdelegates would cause less outcry. The Democrats already use this system, so there is precedent for the GOP to follow.
Delegate reform is an interesting option to prevent future instability. Winning the White House is the GOP’s ultimate goal, and they need a credible candidate to do so. This election cycle has proven the current system’s susceptibility to outsiders; preemptive action would serve the GOP well for 2020 and beyond.
