Republican hypocrisy just gags me.  When the Democrats called for recounts in Florida (actually, the recount was MANDATED by law), what did the Republicans say?

VOTER FRAUD!!!  The Democrats are trying to STEAL the election!  Corrupt Democrats!!  Senator Nelson is clearly trying to commit fraud to try to win this election! Vote-rigging!!  Rigged!!

Bruce Poliquin: Recount is about fairness, not who wins or loses
 
PORTLAND (AP) — Republican U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin says a recount in his failed re-election bid is necessary to make sure every vote is counted by hand under Maine’s new election system.

He formally requested a recount on Monday.

Poliquin: “this is not about who wins or loses this election"

What is wrong with you Republicans??  Voter fraud! Voter fraud! Voter fraud!  If that doesn't work, just make things up.  Poliquin sure has learned from Trumpery.  You Republicans make me gag.

Bruce Poliquin gets the numbers wrong about blank ballots in 2nd District race

Poliquin: There are thousands and thousands of underballots that have been put aside. That is very, very unusual. In a typical race there might be a few hundred ballots that are left blank.  But here, there’ve been thousands and thousands of underballots. And how do you deal with those? That’s an issue.

Reality



Voters in this election cast more ballots indicating a preference in Poliquin’s race than they did in both 2014 and 2016, the two races Poliquin won.

Rob Richie, president of Fair Vote, a group devoted to overhauling the way American election operate, said numbers distributed by Maine’s Secretary of State’s Office showed there were more than twice as many blank votes in the 2016 congressional contest as there were this year (Poliquin won, so apparently it wasn't an issue for him then. What a surprise!).

Statistics show in 2014, when Poliquin was first elected, 11,532 voters in the district who cast ballots but did not select anyone in the congressional race. Two years ago, there were 12,703 voters who did not make a pick in the congressional race when Poliquin defeated Democrat Emily Cain.

This year, 6,018 ballots were cast by voters who left the congressional race blank on their ballots.

RCV is simple.

If a majority of voters don't vote for you, you don't get elected.

A plurality is not always a majority.

With RCV, who we send to Washington will always have the support of the majority.

Those who are against RCV do not support majority rule.

Simple
