Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi predicted that the Republican Party would face an "implosion" if it handed off its presidential nomination in a contested convention to someone other than front-runner Donald Trump.

"If they reject the public will, they will really hand us a bigger victory than I'm even anticipating now, because that will be an implosion of the Republican Party," Pelosi said at a press briefing, The Hill reports.

Trump is the leading contender, but if no candidate hits the 1,237-delegate threshold, it's possible that the Republican convention could be contested.

If Trump is denied, "I think you'd have riots," he said, according to a CNN report.

Pelosi said no such issues would transpire at the Democratic convention. "The person who wins in the public arena will be our nominee," Pelosi said, The Hill reports.

Pelosi criticized the superdelegate system, and argued that voters in primaries should have the last word.

She described how she believes electing the president should work for voters. "I cast my vote, and I decide who will be president of the United States."

She said the popular vote was not a "recommendation" to Washington lawmakers about who to elect. Instead, it's "the Democratic process."
