Minnesota is deeply married to the precinct caucus approach, which means the grass roots flourish and frequently overwhelm would-be kingmakers. From today's New York Times.

We love our neighborhood caucus-assembly system for nominating to the primary ballot here in Colorado, too. That's why Amendment 29, which would have killed the system, was defeated 60% to 40%, despite the would-be kingmakers outspending the opponents $1.4 million to $12 thousand.
