A further 5 percent of voters said they would back third-party candidates Lisa Savage and Max Linn.


People who vote for turd-party candidates in a close race are pieces of sh*t.

Maine specifically adopted ranked-choice after the LePage fiasco.

Don't get in the way of his rage. He just needs pre-made up excuses when his party's bad candidates lose. Can't blame the candidate, it's gotta  be the voters' fault


Well, if your state doesn't have RCV and someone votes for a party that can't get it's shiat together and only runs a vanity candidate for President every four years?  Then yes, that's the voter's fault.

theteacher: Don't they have ranked choice voting? Lisa Savage's votes will go to Gideon.


RTFA, it covers this.  Gideon's lead goes from 1 point to 2.  This race is close.  I hate to be negative but combined with Dems not getting their asses to the polls in Florida, well, be prepared for disappointment.

We have ranked choice voting in Maine, so you are welcome to vote third and fourth party to your content. So long as you rank Gideon above Collins, Gideon will get your vote when it actually counts.

More states should look into other voting options both to give other candidates exposure and to eliminate the tyranny of the minority most places have today.


It isn't ranked voting for all elections though? Aren't some still winner takes all. Is this one of those
