You probably won’t be surprised to hear that a lot of Americans are worried about the state of democracy in the United States.
According to an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll conducted after the midterm elections, more than 8 in 10 Americans feel there is a serious threat to Democracy in the U.S.
Ranked choice voting has become the latest political change touted as a way to strengthen democracy.

NPR’s Miles Parks reports on whether ranked choice will live up to the hype as a cure-all for the country’s deep partisan divides.
