Letter: Democrats rig primary voting to back the elite
Placeholder Image

Regardless of which political party or ideology you adhere to, one must admire the Democratic Party leaders. They obviously know their constituency.

Party leaders acknowledged in 1984 that their rank and file didn’t have the intellect to properly vote for the “correct” candidate so they implemented the super delegate, a way to go around the vote of their minions.

If the candidate chosen by the party’s elite did not win in the primary by votes cast by their constituents, then the party leaders, governors, elected officials and other hand-picked individuals would right this wrong by overruling the public vote and cast their super delegate votes for the “proper” candidate, thereby negating the popular vote.

So you see, it’s not just Republicans who think Democratic voters are wrong. So do their own party leaders.
