Hillary’s theory about Tulsi being groomed as a third-party candidate and a potential spoiler in the presidential race, is gaining traction again. However, I think that, instead of engaging in endless and fruitless discussions about who is a spoiler and who is not…we should just introduce ranked choice voting all across the country. For those who do not know much about it, ranked choice voting means that people can vote for multiple candidates, in order of preference (1st choice, 2nd, 3rd…etc). The one who wins more than 50% of first choices wins. If there is no such a candidate, the one who won the least number of votes is eliminated and his ballots redistributed to his voters’ 2nd choice candidates.
I believe this system could save us from all these senseless quarrels.
