Open primary as opposed to closed primary.
In a closed Republican primary, for example, only registered party members can participate in the election.
The dim power brokers have changed election laws in some states to make it easier to change party affiliation right there at the polls during the primary election. This way they can sway the nomination process towards the weakest opposition candidate.
In my opinion, that’s how we got Grandpa McLaime.
