Voters Abandoning Democratic and Republican Party Primaries, Taxpayers Continue Funding the Charade

From USA Today, via The Whig:
Since 1962, the percentage of eligible voters picking Democratic and Republican nominees for governor and U.S. Senate has been declining to less than 10% per party. The percentages are even lower for U.S. House and state legislature primaries, Gans says.
As noted in an excerpt from the Michigan Messenger yesterday: "we spend millions and millions of taxpayer dollars to have the state run the nomination votes for the two major parties."  And then no one  even votes in them!
