New Poll: What's the best way to select our nominees?

SmartBrief on Business & Politics | Feb 01, 2016

Tonight's Iowa caucuses are the first step in selecting the delegates who will nominate the major parties' candidates for president. Next week, the New Hampshire primary will follow suit. Critics, however, contend that starting with two small, unrepresentative states distorts the selection process. Supporters counter that Iowa and New Hampshire provide candidates with an opportunity to meet the voters in person, something impractical in larger states such as Florida or Texas. What do you think? This week's question: What would you recommend as an alternative to our current system of caucuses and primaries to determine the party nominees? Cast your vote below. You can also send us your thoughts, comments and suggestions at politics@smartbrief.com. We will post the results on Friday.
