You Want Republicans to Put Country Before Party…But Will You?
Jennifer Hoelzer

One idea I’ve wanted to push for some time is to get rid of plurality voting and replace it with a system in which all voters rate all candidates on the ballot. Doing so would make it easier for voters to do what you ask. Let’s say that you’re a hard-core Democrat and that there is no way that you are going to give your favorite Democrat a rating that is less than any Republican, even for a Trump-crossing Republican. That’s fine, even if you were to do so, you would still be able to give a rating to the Trump-crossing Republican and to the horde of Trump-backing Republicans and thus show that you prefer the Trump-crosser over the Trump-supporters. That will not happen as long as plurality voting is in place.
