Re: April 2019 Presidential Preference Poll

Not if you made them cumulative. Both the cases you cited dealt with districts of unequal population. Example - Arizona has 9 seats. In cumulative voting a voter would get 9 votes. They could cast for 9 different candidates, or 3 each to 3, etc. A third party could run one candidate, have it's memb...

Re: April 2019 Presidential Preference Poll

Are you talking about states with only one representative? No. Every one of the 435 Congressional districts is single-member. Not if you made them cumulative.

Re: April 2019 Presidential Preference Poll

There is the Amendment process. And cite where you think it is unconstitutional It doesn’t work at the federal level with single-member districts, which we have had by statute in federal elections since the mid-60s. Trying to implement cumulative voting in single-member districts, even if mathemati...

Re: April 2019 Presidential Preference Poll

Cumulative voting would actually give a third or fourth party a better shot at winning seats in the House. Sure, but in some cases it would be someone's second or third choice, which doesn't really mean they'd want those candidates either. I've seen Parliamentary governments, I really wouldn't want...

Re: April 2019 Presidential Preference Poll

Then support ranked choice or cumulative voting I'd be fine with ranked choice in primaries, but I don't think it would make any difference in the actual Presidential election. Besides, it ends up giving the eventual winner even more of a mandate (the "see, I had more than 50% of the vote, peo...

Re: April 2019 Presidential Preference Poll

It's not like it's close guys. It's been 26 years since Ross Perot got almost 19% of the vote. Nothing has been close since. Last year all the third party together didn't crack 6%. Now, IF a Republican runs as an independent this year, I would expect a better than average year, but don't look for a...

Re: April 2019 Presidential Preference Poll

You're joking, right? Voting for either party is throwing away your vote, even though one of them will win? Whereas voting third party is not a waste, even though your vote will be going to somebody who will get maybe 5% of the vote in a good year? And voting your conscience is only if they vote ho...

So who do you think is a good option? If you could convince 5 people to throw their names in the Dem Primary (because Trump has the GOP nomination locked down), who would you convince? Tulsi Gabbard, the young female Bernie Sanders. http://d2ioe7v385j9xr.cloudfront.net/608_1b3e2628-2b7d-4de0-a42e-d...
