Why did Hillary Clinton win the Texas Democrat Primary? Because 98,223 (or more) Republicans had to vote for somebody!
By strategically voting Democratic in the Texas primary, I’ve joined the ranks of Texans who are not voting to secure a Republican nominee (since that has pretty much already been decided).
But rather, we have voted with the strategy to cause as much chaos within the Democratic party by intentionally voting for someone we do NOT want to win the presidential election, but who would be the more viable option to run against in the end.
Hat tip to Tim.
Update: Daily Kos presents evidence the Republicans are gaming the Democratic convention.trackback
