    100% wrong. Closed primaries ensure that no cross-partisan meddling occurs. This is not the same thing as the general where we should vote according to issues and not party. Primaries are an internal decision making process. Do you think Coca Cola should get to decide what Pepsi Co does? What do you think would be Coke’s motivations if they could? I bet they wouldn’t have Pepsi Co’s best interests in mind, would they? Exactly. Can you imagine what Trump republicans would do to a democratic ballot? Or what Metoo/BLM voters would do to a republican ballot? Unacceptable.
