Sanders Wins in Wyoming--a caucus state

Sanders seems to do best in caucus states. I can see why. I think that the caucus process is a bit lame. Sure, it's a place where people can come to directly to vote for their choice. But, it take time and tends to favor people who can afford the time to go to the location and spend a couple of hours on the process. This means that the most dedicated folks, or the folks who don't happen to work on the day that the caucus is held participate. This seems to favor Sanders, whose supporters tend to be more dedicated. I really think that all states should provide extended voting hours/days and should drop the caucus idea in favor of voting.
