Perhaps it is time; we in the UK did away with the "first past the post" election system and instead adopted first, second, and the third choice, just as the good people of Alaska did. This way, the unwanted could be defeated regardless of which party.
Leadership and Values are all important, and if we could only get away from voting for a party (particularly when they have been hi-jacked by a despotic thug) and instead vote for the person - democracy would, I believe, be better served.
This system has undoubtedly just positively served the Alaskans and the USA. It has done the whole population a great favour; they do not have to contend with a trump-fawning Sarah Palin.
