This new form of democracy, where voters aren't bothered to vote, is catching on. First in Colorado, and now in Wyoming.
As a 'low information voter,' I'd be upset about these faux primaries. But my candidate continues to poll at 50% in the national polls while this sophisticated candidate uses the fine print to either win delegates without a vote, or redistribute delegates who were already awarded to someone else.
Even the deeply respected Glenn Beck supports this new form of democracy!
It may all be legal. And everybody knew the rules going into the primaries.
But you'll never convince low-information voters of this. Those stupid 50% are going to think they've been cheaTed.
And that is why I'm enjoying this primary season. We get to see the candidates without the marketing. We get to see the real candidates, their true character, and their values.
In the case of Ted Cruz, we get to see him as Heidi sees him.
