Is it only me or does everyone think the way the current primaries are held are not fair to every voter in the U.S.

The current set up allows a few states to basicly determine who are running for President. I know a few states have tried to change election dates for this year, but that for the most part failed. So now not everyone has a fair chance to decide who they want to vote for.

In my opinion the primaries should all be held at the same time in May that would allow time for everyone's vote to count unlike it does now.

Does anyone else share this view?

If you held it all at once, some Billionares would be running,cause they would have ready money and fast. This way, candidates have to hustle and campaign, and this whole whining about 'unfair' is really becoming annoying, considering many people refuse to vote no matter who is running. In the general election, we have the electoral college, to manage the undue influence of any one political machine pouring money into one region. Also, everyone votes for local representatives for Congress, and the Presidency is the executive, so everyone has a vote. It's fair.
