My Solution For the Primaries

Hopefully, whoever wins the DNC Chair, the first change will occur with the monopoly that Iowa and New Hampshire have on our primary process.
I'm not sure if they're taking suggestions, but I have a solution for the best way to do it...
The DNC felt that they should line up the Primaries, so that they could get a clear winner as early as they could. But the system is flawed.... and like I said, pretty bogus.
I propose this....
Instead of having just one Super Tuesday, break the entire Primary system into Super Tuesdays. Then, spread them out into one per month, which would allow the candidates more time to campaign in the upcoming states.
For instance, the voting schedule would look like this...
-District of Columbia
This would be beneficial because:
- One or two states wouldn't decide the entire race.
- No one region would decide the race. Each Super Tuesday would be a mix of different regions of the country.
- Each voting block would have a mix of states with large population, medium population, and smaller population.
- The votes wouldn't be right on top of eachother like 2004. So a candidate would have a month to campaign in the next block of states.
- The better the competition, the more improved the winner is going into the general election.
