    as that month giving someone who may have come in better than expected in an early primary, but not necessarily as a clear "front runner," to capitalize that and build a case for themselves. Now, as many have said above, there is a clear advantage for the recognized "front runner" (ie whomever the media wants to declare as such) going in, which is exacerbated by the fact that the primaries are now all squished together. It's not the fact that they're chronologically early that worries me; it's the fact that the period of voting is a month shorter.

      could mean the opposite happens also from what you are saying. Read this post of mine above yours.

      As of now no one really knows how it will impact the primaries. This is all new and like anything new it must run it's course to see the actual results of how it affects the nomination process.
