6. Not many. From what I can find 32 states allow voters to register by party. Plus, I don't think...

...that all of the remaining 18 states "prohibit" party registration, they just allow registrants to not choose a party (not sure how many though)

Open primaries allow for manipulation of primaries by getting out the opposing party voters to vote in the other primary.

I remember when I was very young my father told me that he changes party before the deadline so he could vote for the person that would be weakest in the other party so his candidate would have an easier time in the general election.

Do you really want a member of the republican party to be involved in choosing the Democratic candidate? What is the logic behind that?
