    An alternate voting method would have likely made Tom Emmer the Governor and not Mark Dayton who won by a very small margin if you recall. If ranked choice is anything like instant run-off voting then I’m all in. It keeps third party goof balls from wrecking it just to make a point. Case in point: 2010, Tom Horner (I) peeled away 12% of the vote total, likely to have gone to Emmer, thereby allowing drug induced Dayton, who didn’t receive anywhere near 50% majority, to win the seat and start his journey in destroying the state of Minnesota.
