The first two things, without which nothing else can work, are:

1) Only registered Republicans, who voted in the last two elections AS registered Republicans, can vote.

2) No more “winners” by plurality. “Winner” in the primary context means 50% +1, or more. In the event that every candidate is below 50%, NO delegate bonuses, NO rewards for “winning”. I would also set a threshold of 20%, below which no delegates are awarded.

Yep, that’s what needs to be done, especially #2.
The GOPe stacks the deck by putting “their” candidate up against 3 better conservative candidates who split the vote.

There are some states that do not have party registration, such as the Commonwealth of VA.

That’s stupid; it punishes those who could not bring themselves to vote for a socialist (Romney), either by staying home or by voting 3rd party.

>2) No more “winners” by plurality. “Winner” in the primary context means 50% +1, or more. In the event that every candidate is below 50%, NO delegate bonuses, NO rewards for “winning”. I would also set a threshold of 20%, below which no delegates are awarded.

No winner-take-all — That is a much better idea.
