Utah Republican Primaries

Ignoring, for a moment, the larger political implications of stalwart Republican Senator Robert Bennett failing to get on the Republican primary ballot for his re-election, I find it very interesting that Utah's Republicans have taken the idea of a primary to the next logical level, by having a pre-primary decision that makes the actual primary a top-two runoff; which then, of course, feeds straight into the two-party-dominated general election. It's the only rational response when you assume single-winner plurality elections.

Someone should tell them about approval voting.
