They have a limited choice anyway. If Kasich doesn't win 7 more states, and no other candidate enters and wins 8 states, then they have the choice between Trump and Cruz.

This is assuming they don't just change the rules.

Can they even do that in the middle of primaries?

yea i believe they can change the rules.

I know they can add rules before this nomination process ends

“Political parties operate like private clubs. This stuff isn’t law, it is a matter of state party and national rules and regulations,” Gregory Magarian, a elections law professor at Washington University at St. Louis told LawNewz.com. Simply put, the state rules/laws are not enforceable."


and

here is the smoking gun


"On Friday, Haugland issued a new memo, insisting that he and all fellow RNC delegates can’t be bound under current rules. “That’s right. Every delegate to the 2016 Republican National Convention is a completely free agent, free to vote for the candidate of their choice on every ballot at the convention in Cleveland in July,” he wrote. “Every delegate is a Superdelegate!”

even had a rule in case ron paul got the nomination


“It’s immensely important largely because of the changes that were put in place by Romney’s team in 2012 to sort of block out Ron Paul,” said Michael Steele, a former RNC chairman.
