More from Paul Lukasiak's groundbreaking work on democracy and the primary process:
Based on exit polls, among the approximately 16.3 million people who identified themselves as Democrats, over 678,000 more voted for Hillary Clinton than Barack Obama. If we’re going to “let the people decide" who the Democratic nominee would be, shouldn’t we be basing that on the will of Democrats themselves?
Of course, since the Republicans have winner-take-all primaries, we would have to vote in huge numbers to influence them. But since we have proportional representation, Republicans don't have to vote in great numbers in our primaries. Just enough to affect the margin.
Any question in your mind that the Obama campaign is quite comfortable riding a wave of very old-style Hillary Hatred? Just win, baby!
