George Crandall (Readers' Forum, March 21) claims the Democratic Party's process of nominating a president is "undemocratic." To support his claim, he maintains regular voters do not choose the superdelegates. The majority of the superdelegates are elected officials such as governors and congressmen. Who does Mr. Crandall supposes elects these officials if not regular voters? These superdelegates bring an additional perspec-
tive to the nominating process. They take into consideration factors relevant to the best interest of the party.The Republican Party, in the majority of states, has a winner-take-all process in which the winner of the primary election is awarded all the delegates. This fact contributed to the rather rapid demise of Mitt Romney as a viable candidate, which I am sure did not please the majority of Utah Republicans. All things considered, I believe most people (outside of Utah) would agree that the Democrats are more "democratic."
