There are tens of millions of voters in states that will not get to vote for the candidate of their choice because early primary states chased their candidate out of the race.
The argument for the Presidential primary system is that we need to level the playing field for candidates with less money and power. That may have been a valid argument prior to the advent of social media and the internet. Today it is no longer a valid argument. Jeb Bush and his PACs have spent over $100,000,000+ on television and have not broken double digits in national polls. Jeb may be a poor candidate, but a strong arguement can be made that expensive television airtime has lost much of its impact.
How can we continue to justify disenfranchising tens of millions of primary voters by giving the decision for the most powerful job in the world to Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina when the internet levels the playing field?
