    There won't be any of this "spoiler" or "vote splitting" bullshit.

    I suggest range voting.  Or approval voting.

    Read pp. 1-7 of Krugman's _The Great Unraveling_ (available from Google Books). NOW.

        IRV, range voting, etc., despite how fighting such usually works against their own candidates. GOP in 2006 nominated worst of three candidates for governor, who lost. Tom Allen badly hurt his reputation trying to keep Hoffman, a candidate that was to the left of him off the ballot, while with IRV Hoffman supporters would surely have put Allen as 2nd choice.
