Who, this time, are the two best?
After I posted, I realized I didn’t fully explain what I meant but I didn’t correct that.
I meant that all parties involved would run in a national primary and the two best vote getters would run in November.
Since that system doesn’t exist, your question doesn’t apply. Our individual state primaries are so scattered across time and so different in format and results that they are hard to interpret. One guy runs away with one state and another guy runs away with a different state.
The stupid debate formats are a jumble of liberal moderator gotcha questions combined with unequal treatment of candidates. The winner is based on who has the best one-liners rather than the best ideas. They aren’t even debates.
Having multiple parties makes the problem even more complicated, though.
What I don’t want is a candidate being able to win the presidential election with 40% of the vote. I would like to at least pretend that we can narrow our selection to two candidates.
With people voting not for the best person in their party but rather for the worst person in the other party is another complication.
What’s the best solution? I don’t know.
