When it comes to this Republican primary, there's not much attention given to who is voting.  Guess what? Almost nobody is voting.  Which means each and every vote counts. A lot. 

There are approximately 240 million voting-age Americans. So far the primaries have counted votes from just about 3 million people.  In Colorado, where Santorum won, only just over 1% of the population of the state (including kids too young to vote) voted in the Republican primary.  I can't help but wonder whether we would get less-crazy candidates if more people were expected to vote.  

I'd really like to see more attention to this in the news. Why are so many of us letting so few choose who will have a chance at the most powerful position in the land?
