Sooo... Why are we allowing votes to be tampered with by delegates? That sounds like a good source of corruption.

Why the hell are there delegates? Doesn't seem very democratic to me.

All delegates should be required to vote as the citizens request. The fact that they can do as they like is complete crap and should be illegal.

So, let me get this straight: My people and I can vote all we want for "Joe", but at the end the Delegate and Super Delegate can do whatever they want!

That is the most deceived system in the world.

So what's the point in voting if the delegates get to choose who they want to elect?

Being non-US, this help me understand what is going on in the latest season of House of Cards.

I can see the hate for superdelegates, and can understand why they aren't good for a true democracy, but I see it as a way for people who are in the system (and therefore, know a lot more than the average person about what is needed in a candidate at any given time) to get a voice in who they think is the best. I'm not sure if it's entirely wrong or used for that purpose of "we know better, so our choices should matter more", but I can see the utility in their existence in a primary.

It really should be a direct election. Back in the day they had delegates because you couldn't really know too much about the candidates and people would just vote for the person from their state, but now that's not a problem.

Man... Is it just  me or the US has a very complicated electoral system?

In Australia we have a federal election every 3 or so years in which you can choose which party you want to vote for. The party with the most seats wins. That's it. Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much easier.
