This is a great video put together by Vox that really has me thinking about how primaries are done for both parties, and how fluid and not set in stone the whole process really is. A lot of our current setup is actually very arbitrary. Thought it would make for a good forum discussion here.
Did you know the history of how both parties came to decide on how to do all the primaries? That we didn't even have primary voting in all states until after 1968 because of protests? I think I might have vaguely known that but interesting to see it all laid out in a comprehensive way here.
I agree its time to change the way we do early voting for party candidates. Giving Iowa and 3 other states so much power and influence in the early goings, every single election, doesn't make sense to me. Or at least I think it could be done way better and more fair.
Thoughts on how to improve the primary voting process in the US? Or do you think its pretty good as is?
