Ranked Choice Voting for President


(Image by Laurel L. Russwurm)
  Details   DMCA

This poll will be a bit different from others you may have seen. It is intended to present the Presidential election as if there was a system of Ranked Choice Voting (RCV).
In a recent article in the Portland Press Herald, where a proposal for RCV is discussed, RCV is described thusly:

Under ranked-choice voting, voters rank candidates in order of preference. If no candidate gets more than 50 percent of the votes cast after the first tally, the candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated. Voters who chose the eliminated candidate have their ballots added to the totals of their second-ranked candidate and the ballots are retabulated. This process continues until one candidate has a majority of votes and is declared the winner.

In the choices presented below, you will be presented with three options for President (listed alphabetically here): Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump. Each choice represents your first, second and third choice for president. Please select the one that matches your preference in the order of first, second and third choice.

1. Donald Trump; 2. Bernie Sanders; Hillary Clinton
1. Donald Trump; 2. Hillary Clinton; 3. Bernie Sanders
1. Bernie Sanders; 2. Hillary Clinton; 3. Donald Trump
1. Bernie Sanders; 2. Donald Trump; Hillary Clinton
1. Hillary Clinton; 2. Donald Trump; 3. Bernie Sanders
1. Hillary Clinton; 2. Bernie Sanders; 3. Donald Trump
