Both major parties have complex mechanisms for choosing presidential nominees, with each state holding caucuses or primaries under different rules. Candidates earn delegates to back them at the summer nominating conventions, with a certain number required to clinch the nomination.
But the 2015-16 presidential nominating process turned off a great many voters. According to an Associated Press poll, 38 percent of Americans said they had hardly any confidence that the Democratic Party’s process for selecting a presidential nominee is fair; 44 percent said the same of the Republican Party’s process. In addition, about 4 in 10 said they have only some confidence in each party’s nomination process.
Do you agree that the process is seriously flawed? Why, or why not? If so, what kinds of changes would you like to see?
