RNC spring meeting results in zero changes to convention rules

The Republican National Committee met Thursday in Florida to discuss possible changes to the GOP convention rules. 

The Republican establishment has been trying to block frontrunner Donald Trump from securing the 1,237 delegates  he needs for the nomination,  so the grassroots were wary of any rule changes that could open the door to other establishment-approved candidates. But all motions to change the rules failed:  committee members said they felt like they were under heavy scrutiny. 

Is the GOP trying to be fair and transparent? Or are they just afraid of Trump and his threat of riots?
