In a reply to a post, I explained the potential game-changing (game as in game theory) influence of ranked-choice (RC) polling (as opposed to standard polling) to establish stable voting blocks by democratic means. To be clear, I am not a game theorist, but I am a computational theorist, and the principles of game theory concepts are within my wheelhouse.
Discoordination of people and a mainstream narrative that decides how|what information is distributed forces people to select a (democratically) sub-optimal option to avoid spoiling. Polling is often constructed with the condition “if the election was held today, […]”. It is a seemingly reasonable and inert condition, but it can have a strong influence on results.
The website is a trusted and scalable RC polling platform and could provide a means of coordinating voting efforts. I have purchased a subscription to see what it has to offer, and it is incredible. I will post an example RC poll for the Democratic Primary in the Discord server.
I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts and discuss these ideas.
