Primary foolishness

What a waste of time and energy this would be:

A new statewide poll released today found strong support for moving Indiana's May primary election to January or February.

Some 61 percent of those surveyed in a WISH (Channel 8) poll said the primary should be held earlier in the year to give Hoosiers more of a voice in presidential politics.

Some 61 percent of those surveyed are delusional. And so are all those who got their primaries moved up in all those other states. The pdrimaries are all bunched together so close that the candidates can't possibly spend much time in any of the states. The net result will be that Iowa and New Hampshire will have even more importance.
