Another Primary Idea

Published on February 28, 2008 by

One of the things that annoyed me about the Republican primary this year was that McCain racked up a lot of delegates in winner-takes-all states that will not be voting Republican in the general election (New York and New Jersey, for example).  Why should states that will not contribute to a general election victory be allowed to exercise such a large influence on the selection of the nominee?

Therefore, here’s my proposal: only states that went for the party’s nominee in the previous general election should be allowed to use a winner-takes-all method of assigning delegates.
