4. The GOP should be discussed in regular 'General Discussion'

(Here's a comment from Skinner in ATA to that effect: http://www.democraticunderground.com/12598164 )

Since the transition of 'Politics 2015' into 'GD: Primaries', the Host interpretation has been:

1) 'GD: Primaries' is for Dem primaries and nothing else (based on the SoP of GDP and the stop-screen),
2) Rep primaries are thus excluded from GDP and belong in 'General Discussion,' and
3) Dem primaries are excluded from GD and must be in GDP (based on the SoP of GD and the stickied info thread in GD).

(Edit to add a second ATA comment regarding renaming GD: Primaries, and/or including Republican primaries in GDP: http://www.democraticunderground.com/12598175 )
