Ranked Choice Voting a Trojan Horse for Electing Losers
Of course, their email asked for donations to help them implement a “more equitable voting system.” If they really want equitable, then they should be supporting term limits.
Why won’t they just go away?
Ranked Choice Voting is still within our midst in Massachusetts. Despite losing in 2020, 45 to 55 percent, they are still pushing their crazy voting system. Their latest email claims that 67 percent of Massachusetts voters support them. Really?
UMass Amherst/WCVB conducted the poll of 700 residents. The data showed approval of Maura Healey, Elizabeth Warren, and the legislature in the mid 50s. Biden even got 49 percent approval rating, so it appears that this poll is slanted to the left. Have you talked to anyone recently who likes Biden or isn’t mad at Healey over the illegal aliens?
The question on ranked-choice voting reads as follows: “allowing voters the option to rank candidates in order of preference.” Of course, people are going to respond favorably to ranking candidates. If the question read that the candidate who gets the most votes might not win, the poll might have had different results.
According to the Ranked Choice Voting group, the results of this poll are due to their efforts to raise the “profile” of their mission. Nope! It is called skewing the results with poorly worded questions.
Of course, their email asked for donations to help them implement a “more equitable voting system.” Equitable? How about electing the person who gets the most votes?
Their website says, “every vote counts.” Counts? Under their system, counting makes no sense when the candidate with the most votes doesn’t win!
If they really want equitable, then they should be supporting term limits. Ninety percent of special interest and lobbyist money goes to incumbents. By implementing term limits, we would more likely elect candidates on merits not special interest money.
Don’t be fooled by Ranked Choice Voting advocates or this left-leaning poll. No one is now wanting this crazy system.
