Does anyone know why the Democrats stripped Michigan and Florida of their delegates for scheduling an early primary, but no penalty to Iowa or New Hampshire? Why no penalty for the other 2? That doesn't seem fair to the voters in Michigan and Florida. I think some voters are being disenfranchised. LOL.

New Hampshire lost half of its delegates but not all because they are always first. Iowa didn't lose any of there delegates because they are a caucus state, smae reason Nevada won't lose any of theres. Party rules ay there can be no primary before feb. 5th. This rule does not apply to caucuses. I think stripping a state of of delegates is a huge mistake by the party. On both sides people are sick of the establishment, this is another way for the old power to hold on a little longer.
