How primaries, caucuses, super delegates and more work in United States primary elections

(CBS) - It's primary season and politics are definitely hot news right now. If you're looking to understand what's happening specifically in the midst of the GOP primaries, definitely check out our sister site Political Hotsheet. But if you want to understand just what exactly is a primary, then look no further than the video above.

The informative and clever video was brought to you (once again) by one our favorites here at The Feed, C.G.P. Grey. He most recently graced our pages with a fun video on 2012 and the Mayan Calendar (spoiler: it's probably not the end of the world), but has covered such subjects as Santa, continents, pennies, daylight savings time and more. If you'd like to check out more of his education-made-fun style, you can go to his YouTube page by clicking here.
