Updated in a new 9th edition, Politics in America provides straightforward, descriptive coverage of American politics and government. Using the Harold Lasswell definition of politics Tom Dye employs this classic, and still resonant, interpretation as the lens through which he examines the foundations, institutions, behaviors, and policies of the American political system.
— Washington's statewide presidential primary doesn't hold much, if any, intrigue. Donald Trump is the sole candidate standing in the Republican race, and Democrats don't use the results to allocate their delegates to the national convention. Regardless, about 1. 3 million voters have already sent in their ballots for Tuesday's election. "I think there's value in the sense that it's a million-plus people sending the message that they want to participate in this," said Todd Donovan, a political science professor at Western Washington University. Washington has both a presidential primary and a caucus system, but Democrats will ignore the primary results, having chosen to keep using the party caucus system to allocate their delegates. Bernie Sanders handily won the Democratic caucuses in March. Republicans in Washington will allocate all 44 delegates to their national convention based on the primary results. Even though Trump is the only candidate remaining in the GOP contest, John Kasich and Ted Cruz are still on the ballot because they suspended their campaigns after the ballots were printed. The inevitability of the Republican race doesn't sit well with some voters who say they are not ready to support Trump. Daniel Emborg said Tuesday he voted for Cruz. Emborg, who was depositing his ballot at a drop box in Everett, said if Trump is the GOP nominee, he will vote for a third-party candidate. However, Tom Lasswell said he voted for Trump because "you need to instigate change. "I like Ted Cruz, but I believe Donald Trump can pull this together, and I'm willing to give him a chance," he said. The secretary of state's office said 28 percent of voters returned their ballots ahead of Tuesday's deadline. Election officials said that as of Tuesday evening, 31 percent of voters have returned their ballot. There are more than 4 million registered voters in Washington state, who can either vote by mail or by dropping their ballot at an election drop box. The record number of presidential primary ballots counted in Washington was nearly 1. 4 million in 2008, according to the secretary of state's office. Under state law, the presidential primary is held on the fourth Tuesday of May, unless the parties agree to change it, which they did in both of those years. Last year, Republican Secretary of State Kim Wyman pushed to have this year's primary moved to March, but the move, opposed by Democrats, failed to get the two-thirds vote required by the Presidential Primary Date Selection Committee. Sanders overwhelmingly won the district caucuses March 26. Following the congressional district caucuses over the weekend, a spokesman for the state Democratic Party said 74 delegates will go to Sanders and 27 to Clinton. Cornell Clayton, director of the Foley Institute for Public Policy at Washington State University, said even though the Democratic primary is nothing more than a poll, there's still value for the campaign that prevails. State Republicans will send 44 delegates to the July national convention in Cleveland. Thirty will be allocated proportionally based on candidate percentages in the congressional districts — three delegates from each of the 10 districts. Fourteen at-large delegates, which include three Republican National Committee members, will be allocated according to the statewide primary votes. Those delegates are allocated proportionally to candidates with at least 20 percent of the statewide vote. The delegates were chosen over the weekend at the state Republican convention. Of the 41 elected delegates, 40 were Cruz supporters. However, under party rules, each delegate is bound to the primary results for the first round of voting at the national convention.
