Dont you think all this reporting of the eastern states is going to sway the rest of the states? IE Cali? I think they should be able to do what they want. Just want to hear thoughts.

Well, the state departments put out the data. Blame them.

Absolutely it should be illegal. Especially in cases where there are more than 2 candidates.

It should be illegal for people who are so stupid that they will "only vote for the candidate that can win" to vote. Then it wouldn't matter what any polls say.

no. that's exactly the same as Iowas reporting before NH reporting before...

It shouldn't have anything to do with law--the parties are private clubs, formed by free association. They should have nothing to do with gov't. It should be like church and state: parties and state, unions and state, corporations and state, media and state, healthcare and state. People always try to fix the problems caused by intervention with different or more intervention.
