peaking early

In a rare and ironic display of bipartisanship, California moved its primary date from June to February 5.

California used to be the kingmaker in a close race, which is the only race that matters. Now it’s just another state on Super Tuesday.

But that’s not the worst aspect of this decison. I’m worried that early primaries will cause low voter turnout in November.

How many months will voters tolerate a massive bombardment of campaign TV commercials before they decide to ignore the election?
