As presidential candidates crisscross the United States, they have to learn how to win in open primaries, closed primaries, and caucuses. If they want their party's nomination, they need support from average voters and the more high-profile superdelegates. Candidates also must navigate the unique and varying rules of each state's contest. We haven't even gotten to the general election and the electoral college rules!
There has to be a better system, right? This hour, we ponder what that better system might look like. Maybe a nationwide standard for federal primaries? Maybe Iowa and New Hampshire shouldn't always be the first states to vote in the nation?
