FairVote Wonks Out on Primary Politics
With the first contests of the 2008 presidential primary less than a month away, FairVote has launched two of its famous Innovative Analysis reports on both the Democratic and Republican candidates.
We run the numbers on "Caucus Math," studying the peculiar effects and complex strategies that flow from the Democratic method of picking delegates in Iowa. We also examine the differences in the Republican primaries, with winner-take-all delegate selection, and the unusual tactics of 2008 spawned by a frontloaded primary calendar.
