The way it is done now is BS by allowing a handful of states to be the ones who pick our candidate. I say we have a national primary day and let the chips fall where they may.
“I say we have a national primary day and let the chips fall where they may.”
I like that idea! Drop it in the GOP suggestion box—I’m sure they care.
I wouldn't mind it. Put it in May and maybe you could stop the campaign season from starting so early. It's really the only way to give everyone an equal say. I'd try it with an instant-runoff ballot so nobody wins without a majority vote, this would shelve the role of the delegates in picking the nominee. Or you could award delegates proportionality and then let them battle it out at the convention, fun.
People can give you good reasons why it's a bad idea though.
