Now, both New Jersey and New York are likely to have winner-take-all primaries on the Republican side, a move tremendously helpful to Rudy Giuliani. In the RCP average, Giuliani is up by almost 28% in New Jersey, and he has shown a commanding lead in New York polls.
One thing I don’t like about winner-take-all primaries is that it moves the primary process closer to the Electoral College. Since the Electoral College system isn’t going to change, the primary process should be preserved with delegates awarded in proportion to candidates’ support.
It remains to be seen if the Democrats do the same thing in the two states, which would boost Hillary Clinton (up by 18% in NJ).
