Michigan moves to lose delegates

Today Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm signed into law a bill to reschedule Michigan’s primary from February 5 to January 15.  This will most likely result in them losing their delegates at the Democratic National Convention and half of their delegates at the Republican National Convention.

The move is unfortunate, as it will force Iowa and New Hampshire to move up even earlier to compensate and disenfranchise the voters in Michigan who will know that their votes do not count officially.  The upside to the pledge that all the Democratic candidates made last week is that big advertising will not be what decides the primary result.

However, many voters will remain ignorant of the candidates and go out making uninformed decisions, and typically those uninformed decisions will translate into votes for Hillary Clinton, as she has name recognition on her side.
