Currently 20 states have open presidential primaries with varying levels of openness. Some states allow you to vote for either the Democrat or Republican candidate regardless of party affiliation; others only allow the unaffiliated/un-enrolled or Independents to vote in a primary for other party races. What is your opinion on this, and do you think this opens up issues where a party purposely help choose a poor candidate for their opposing party in order to better win the general election? There is no evidence this has occurred, but do you fear this in the future.

Your party is giving the election to Hillary.
Paul Ryan, Ted Cruz, Mark Rubio. What a pathetic group of republicans. All three are losers. What have they done for the good of the party or the people? Nothing.
Brad, if you can't win, you can't change things. And Trump is looking at an historic defeat. At this rate, Hillary might make it to 350 electoral votes. Don't blame my party. Blame the candidate. I knew you guys would claim "enemy within."
Loyal party voters are dumb, and they let a dumb party make their decisions for them. It is We the People, NOT We the Party. This applies to both parties.
Neither party has the solutions, and they both cause the problems.
It is the party, not Trump.
You bring up a good point that I might make a separate discussion question. Democrats use Super Delegates in their selection process, who are not selected via votes. What is your feeling on Super Delegates and should we revamp this, and how?
Brad, I take offense to that. I'm an intelligent who knows the issues inside and out.; more than the average voter. I vote GOP because I agree with them on the issues.
There are differences, most notably the Supreme Court.
It isn't real smart to limit your choices for who get elected. The results of voting for the party are verifiable. The parties are the problem, and the loyal party voters are enablers. Gridlock is the result of two parties that have opposite goals
