The article discusses varying attitudes of the voters regarding the U.S. presidential elections. The selection of the delegates representing the states, is done by professional political leaders in most states, thus causing frustration among the people. People living in only 12 states have the right to register their presidential preference, and four other primaries do not permit the voters to indicate their personal preference. It highlights on some amendments that grant the people more extension towards selection practices.
