Semi-random parting thought

With as much as the Republican primaries have been discussed as chaos, with front-runners bubbling up and flaming out right away to be overtaken by someone else who does the same thing, I have a modest proposal for whenever any party primary in the future looks like this:

Take a survey of a representative sample of likely primary voters, except instead of asking about particular candidates, ask nothing but questions about particular policy stands they would support or oppose. From the results, describe comprehensively what their ideal candidate would look like from a purely political standpoint.  Anyone paying attention after that point would have an idea of what was being sought out.

If this is already being done, then no one is paying attention to it.  If it isn’t, I doubt it will be done ever, as it makes too much sense. Either way, I’m just sick of hearing about it.

See you next year.

    What a sensible idea! Such a practice may even enlighten the process, where one may actually vote for a choice closets to their stands than which model the media parades out in a given week. Best Wishes for a Happy New Year!
