Caucus Makes no Sense - Could this be the reason why people loose interest politics

For the life of me I can't wrap my head around this "caucus" thing.

caucus is a meeting of supporters or members of a specific political party or movement. The Iowa Caucus[1] is an electoral event in which residents of the U.S. state of Iowa meet in precinct caucuses in all of Iowa's 1,681 precincts and elect delegates to the corresponding county conventions. There are 99 counties in Iowa, and thus there are 99 conventions. These county conventions then select delegates for both Iowa's Congressional District Convention and the State Convention, which eventually choose the delegates for the presidential nominating conventions. About 1% of the nation's delegates are chosen by the Iowa State Convention.

This makes no sense to me at all. When you are voting for the president of the United States, the speaker of the people, one would think he/she would be elected by the people. ALL the people.  I've looked and looked and nothing you can show me out there makes any sense in this modern world.

Why do we not just vote for the president the good old fashion way. Those registered to vote, get out there and vote for the person you think will get the job done. Count the votes and the winner is the one who gets the most votes. NOT! Could this be the reason why people loose interest politics. It is what it is...

When the country knows more about Kardashian's then they who the vice president is. Dont believe? Tune into Jimmy Kimmel one night when he's asking people off the street made up questions and doing interviews of made up stuff on the streets.
