The people who vote in primaries here are traditionally the 'politically active'. In recent years, this has morphed into the 'politically extreme', and the earlier the primary the more extreme the participants. Regrettably, the overall result is that the center, where most people really are, is often not particularly represented by the candidate of either party.
