Republicans Not Happy

Note to the State Republican Party Leadership: a number of your rank and file believes you are not very bright. You have pulled the Colorado Republican Party out of Super Tuesday and made picking convention delegates in one of the most interesting nomination battles in modern history a matter for party insiders. Also, you did this in the year Republicans are breaking turnout records and attracting new members. A Douglas County Republican states her dismay very well:
“I am a Douglas County Republican and recently found out that Republican voters will NOT be allowed to take a straw poll at our caucus for presidential candidates. I don't know if it's the same for the Democrats. According to a Denver Post article, the State GOP voted last year to eliminate straw polls due to some stupid rules with the National GOP. Would you consider doing a story on KUSA about this? I find it appalling that Colorado is the only state that doesn't let its voters have a voice in selecting a presidential candidate.
