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."
