  1. What a joke. The New York primaries are totally meaningless. By the time the NY primaries rolls around, the elections are decided.

It should start right off the bat with California, New York, Florida, Ohio, Texas, the big states with the largest populations. THAT would be a true indicator of which candidates are serious.
