…to Donald Trump, no less
Donald Trump is a national and international embarrassment. But Americans should be even more embarrassed by the circumstances that led to Trump’s victory — in particular, Hillary’s nomination. This post delineates the 12-step process that made it so.
This short article by Martin Dyckman argues persuasively that Instant Runoff Voting produces cleaner campaigns and more moderate candidates who reflect the party’s mainstream, rather than it’s extremists. And it guarantees the person who is eventually elected is the one that a majority of voters prefer, instead of Naderizing the vote. (Naderizing: siphoning off enough so many votes from a similar candidate that a dissimilar, and less popular, candidate wins — as Ralph Nader did to Al Gore in 2000. Remember you heard that term here first!)
