Majority of Americans Would Prefer a Five-Week Presidential Campaign
A Gallup poll out this week found that most Americans think the presidential campaign season is too long. It officially gets started a year before election day, although coverage and speculation starts way before that.
The survey found that 61% of adults would support a law that would shorten the campaign to just five weeks before the election, in September and October. Only 33% were opposed.
The poll also found that 58% of Americans would favor holding all presidential primaries across the country on a single day, with 33% against the idea.
