1. An election that takes place in each major party that allows members of the Democrats and Republicans to narrow down their ultimate choice for their respective presidential nominees;
2. A process that was completely dominated by Donald Trump in 2016 and 2020, where he edged out of absolutely humiliated more established Republican candidates and in the process changed the face and tenor of the Republican party;
Not to be confused with a “primate election,” which is where a bunch of conservative baboons elect the ape who has the smallest hands.
