Imagine if the US democratic party primary worked like this -> 3 months of campaigning, then all registered democrats vote on the same day using ranked choice STV.

I think it would have been Warren, and I think she could probably have stood against Trump and won. I know people don't love her like they love Bernie but I can imagine a platform that most people could live with and campaign for coming out of that. The state by state battle royale is nuts in comparison.

@KingMob 3 weeks of campaigning, one week off before and after the primary, another 3 weeks for the actual election campaign, another week off, and then vote.

Less wasted time, and it can't possibly have a negative impact, because to make the current system worse you'd need Nyarlathotep and ketamine.
