Why not? Think about it. To Caucus you MUST stay and stand for your candidate instead of waltzing in and just pulling a lever or voting a month ahead of time etc. Caucusing is NOT for the lazy,the timid,the mediocre voter. Its for the voter that is SERIOUS that takes this entire issue seriously. I think its a wonderful idea. I am also surprised the democrats haven't whined about caucusing disenfranchising people yet....ya know can't vote early,no absentee ballots etc. All them poor negresses with their 10 kids wouldn't have anyone to watch their brood so they can caucus so it would turn it into a much whiter process so the actual WORKERS are given a bigger voice than the TAKERS are.

Keep the caucus system, but get rid of the electoral college. It was useful in the days of horse and buggy, because travel to voting places was at least a day or two. Now? We've got the Internet as well as many more effective ways of voting that would make EVERY citizen's vote count.

Understandable but I am looking at it from a point of the actual SERIOUS people do having a voice instead of the TAKERS having a larger voice.

I would go caucus no matter the time. That's my point. ONLY the serious people would vote because they care more. Not some idiot who just decided on the fly to vote for the popular person or candidate they heard would offer them some free shit etc. I want REAL SERIOUS FOLKS voting not every tom dick and harry who literally just went in there and pulled a lever because their name sounded cool or some stupid shit.

No--the Caucus disenfranchises so many. Overseas military, the elderly that can't drive at night or can't leave home, parents with young children who cannot get out on a Tuesday night, and those that work at night.

The Caucus in my state represents less than 1% of Republican or Democrat party, and that's why Colorado will not participate this year in selecting who the Republican or Democrat nominee will be. They are unfunded mandates on the party and typically turn out to be a worthless straw poll.

Primary states, where voters have several days to cast a ballot are much better. You get a very clear picture of who the majority wants as their nominee.

Also, the very far left or the angry right show up at these caucus's and they have a very long history of choosing who the LOOSER will be. I imagine that the Presidential primary caucus will be a distant past in the not to far future.
