1* Once they get to their party’s national political convention, should state delegates be required to support the candidate they were elected to support, or should they be free to support whichever candidate they choose?


2* What if a political party convenes its national convention and no presidential candidate has enough delegates to be the nominee? What should the party do—let the candidate with the highest number of delegates be the nominee, let the delegates at the convention choose the nominee by voting for whomever they want, or should party leaders pick the candidate?
