No more caucuses

Also, no more Winner Take All in the primaries. Letís have one person, one vote, and apportion the delegates based on the votes. The concept of winning states instead of votes is diluting the power of the vote in the national elections ... letís not do the same in the primaries

primary today, I would vote for:

1. Texas used to have the Texas two step

 

Texas used to allocate two-thirds of the delegates on the basis of the primary and one-third on a caucus held the night of the primary. It was a mess.
