11. Here's a scenario:

 

Let's imagine that the Republicans have already settled on one person, and their nomination is a foregone conclusion. If the remaining states had open primaries, what would be stopping Republicans from flooding into the Democratic primaries and working to ensure that the candidate they would rather run against gets nominated? That seems to me to be the very opposite of reflecting the will of the people, and it's the kind of dirty politics that can't happen in a closed primary (not without massive amounts of forethought in a state with an early deadline like NY).
