Gallup asked voters last month about their opinions on the front-loaded primary season which is likely to produce the winners on both sides by early February. The survey found that, at worst, most Americans are neutral about the front-loaded nature of the 2008 primaries. About half (49 percent) say that having the caucuses and primaries begin in January is a good thing and another 27 percentsay it is neither good nor bad, leaving less than one-quarter calling it bad.
