  •  well it has resulted in Dems getting locked out (0+ / 0-)

    of CA-31 in 2012, which is a Dem-leaning district, and CA-25 this year, which is Republican-leaning but should be competitive since its open. Republicans haven't gotten locked out of any general elections in competitive districts. It nearly happened in CA-31 this year, too, but one of our candidates scraped by with a margin of something like 200 votes. Democrats are fundamentally disadvantaged because our voters are less likely to turn out in primaries, so we're much more likely to get locked out by the primary, but it could happen to them, too. There should not be a scenario where Obama wins a district but 2 Republicans were in the general election, or Romney won it but 2 Democrats make it to the general.
