I’m over at The Broad Side today talking about the unfairness of the staggered primary system.
The other fact that should be upsetting is the inherent unfairness of the staggered primary system. Not to the candidates. It’s arguable that being able to focus on one state at a time is better for candidates. But the practical result of the staggered primary system is one in which each successive state to vote gets a less robust slate of choices. Iowa and New Hampshire got to choose from the entire field. But even South Carolina, with the third primary of the season, faced a diminished ballot and I don’t doubt that Floridians will have fewer choices yet.
