Unfortunately, some party faithful view it is as a liberal ploy instead of a way to restore its competitiveness
It stands to reason that Donald Trump may not have won the GOP nomination in 2016 if they had RCV back then, too. I’m sure the kooky fringe right candidates who won under the traditional system realize they could likely lose with RCV and thus break out the “RCV was invented by George Soros and his Jewish Space Laser Army” rebuttals.
Yes I agree with this. Republicans would have much more credibility with voter integrity if they also championed things like automatic voter registration, independent redistributing, and ranked choice voting.
You can’t win the culture war just through tricks alone, you have to genuinely win hearts and minds, and if so, conservatives should have nothing to fear from being champions of reforms enhancing democracy.
I don't really *want* the GOP to have more palatable candidates, unless they are sumptuous, which is not likely to be the case.
Let that party sup from its own unelectable stew.
