I've been asked to do a thread on game theory and ranked choice voting.

In most races, whomever gets the most votes wins...but this leaves you with a person <1/2 of voters like - Maine knows this situation well.

Voters get pitted against each other yelling "spoiler!!!!"
Enter ranked choice voting.

RCV eliminates vote splits, and instead of yelling at people to GET OUT of the race, you get to weight all of the folks in the race - voting for the candidate(s) you really want to win first.
We have RCV for primaries and general for federal races.

If there is an incumbent that several groups would prefer not in office, it's beneficial to have 2 strong candidates challenging the incumbent instead of 1.

What? Won't that limit resources? That's not the problem.

Setting aside the SUBSTANTIAL ethical concerns around the man himself, I find Trump's policies to be a combination of foolish and actively malicious, on such a scale that I could not fit the problems in a dozen tweets. So I'll pick one - it is an overt pay to play administration
That is to say, numerous positions of authority have been given to people who have given a lot of money and who stand to make even more money from those positions, with no consideration of expertise or past experience.
This does not seem a particularly debatable point, though I'm sure there are some who would. That's fine, because they kind of illustrate a point - while this behavior is terrible, and I will ABSOLUTELY vote to end it, it was by no means *surprising*.
