GOP Proves They Are On the Other Side: Doubles Down Commitment to Being the Controlled Opposition with Ranked Choice Voting

The Gateway Pundit previously reported on the GOP’s commitment to being the controlled opposition. In 2020, Alaska enacted troubling new election rules including Rank Choice Voting (RCV), a scheme to manipulate our elections and is a threat to our free and fair elections.

A RCV is an electoral system in which voters rank candidates by preference on their ballots. If a candidate wins a majority of first-preference votes, he or she is declared the winner. If no candidate wins a majority of first-preference votes, the candidate with the fewest first-preference votes is eliminated. First-preference votes cast for the failed candidate are eliminated, lifting the second-preference choices indicated on those ballots. A new tally is conducted to determine whether any candidate has won a majority of the adjusted votes. The process is repeated until a candidate wins an outright majority.

In August, Project Veritas released a devastating undercover video of Senator Lisa Murkowski campaign staffers claiming the Alaska RINO secretly supported RCV in her state to ensure election victory.

On Wedensday, two weeks after the election, Democrat Mary Peltola defeated Sarah Palin in the Alaska Special election to replace Rep. Don Young in Congress. Pelota is the FIRST DEMOCRAT to win the House seat in solid red Alaska in 50 Years.

In Missouri, dark money was behind efforts to enact RCV in the state which, thankfully, failed in August.

This is how RINOs and Democrats will steal elections in Red states.

The Heritage Foundation provides a trouble report regarding the impact of Ranked Choice.

Here is how it works. In 2008, instead of choosing to cast your ballot for John McCain, Barack Obama, Ralph Nader, Bob Barr, or Cynthia McKinney, all of whom were running for president, you would vote for all of them and rank your choice. In other words, you would list all five candidates on your ballot from one to five, with one being your first choice for president and five being your last choice.

If none of the candidates were chosen as the number one pick by a majority of voters in Round One, then the presidential candidate with the lowest number of votes would be eliminated from the ballot. People who selected that candidate as their top pick—let us say it was McKinney—would automatically have their votes changed to their second choice. Then the scores would be recalculated, over and over again, until one of the candidates finally won a majority as the second, third, or even fourth choice of voters.

In the end, a voter’s ballot might wind up being cast for the candidate he ranked far below his first choice—a candidate to whom he may have strong political objections and for whom he would not vote in a traditional voting system.

Key Takeaways

Ranked choice voting is a scheme to disconnect elections from issues and allow candidates with marginal support from voters to win.

It obscures true debates and issue-driven dialogs among candidates and eliminates genuine binary choices between two top-tier candidates.

It also disenfranchises voters, because ballots that do not include the two ultimate finalists are cast aside to manufacture a faux majority for the winner.

Conservative voters need to wake up. The Republican Party has failed to represent conservative and populist voters.

The Republican Party has failed.
