Ray La Raja & Jonathan Rauch write: "Too Much Democracy Is Bad for Democracy"

Ray La Raja and Jonathan Rauch write that the American political nominating process has become “bizarre,” ceding too much power to primary voters. They say no other major democracy routinely uses primaries to choose its political candidates and the founders of the United States never intended for primaries to play a role in the country’s electoral system. (The Atlantic, Dec. 2019)
