So if your election looks like this:
Green Party: 3%
Socialist Workers Party: 1%
In todays paradigm the Republican would win.
In ranked choice the Green Party and SWP voters would have selected the Democrats as their second choice. Hence all of those votes would swing to the Dem, giving him the win.
Green Party: 8%
Socialist Workers Party: 6%
That was the only time in my life Ive voted for a democrat because I thought Harris was too big a threat.
One man, many votes.
Yay!!! One man two votes. Eff that damn Constitution!!
That sounds ripe for fraud.
It will just mean that, when people vote they will always rank the closest competitor to their favorite at the bottom of the list. Great policy.
I wonder, what am would be the second place vote of most libertarians?
Anywho, the dems no longer waste their time trying to convince you to vote for their policies. Now they spend all their time and energy on how to make it impossible for you to vote against it.
**** Yep, the first and only time I ever Voted for a Democrat, choosing the Dumb one over the Evil one. ***
I had to leave and come back...my head was starting to explode...I still haven’t figured out how you were able to tell witch from witch
The Jungle Primary
Here's How It Works
But there’s almost NO Rs in NYC as it is.
I don’t see who it helps here.
I personally think if one candidate doesn’t get 50.1%, there should be a runoff between the top two. That would squelch the 3rd party spoilers.
well, there are people that don't actually think about these things...they jump emotionally into voting for Perot,voting our Mia Love, voting for libtard candidates,etc......now we get these voting changes and it will essentially eliminate our votes for good....
I can tell you from experience that if you really want candidate A out of A,B,C,D and E and you have up to three votes, then vote for A, only and throw away your other two votes
Otherwise A will never be elected because the socialist snake in the grass C will have made sure his backers no only to vote for C and no one else.
Well as a sort of liberatarian myself, that is a guarnteed to get a RINO or else a socialist. I will only use one vote and vote for the most likely candidate to win who most closely reflects my views (which is why I never vote libertarian unless the choices is a corrupt RINO and a socialist).
Soros’ money has been successfully spent for the final destruction of the few remaining tidbits of the former Constitutional Republic...
is the voter required to rank all choices?
Great explanation of why this is a bad idea.
