Republican Count for Test Poll

We have a couple new entrants to the Republican race. Also, having too many people on the ballot makes people annoyed. So I am about to redo the database, adding the new entrants and eliminating many of the candidates from 2016. (I’ll keep some of the leading candidates form 2016 to give the Never Trumpers options.)

Anyway, here are the results from before my intended database purge:

Range with Runoff Count

First Round:

For the first round, we count just as in Range Voting, but we are interested in the top two candidates. If there is a tie for second place in this round, then we take the top candidate and all second place candidates to the second round.

CandidateNumber of Stars
Donald Trump259
Bill Weld118
John Kasich139
Ted Cruz216
Marco Rubio146
Ben Carson191
Jeb Bush146
Jim Gilmore99
Carly Fiorina94

Rand Paul184
Rick Santorum108
Mike Huckabee138
George Pataki96
Lindsey Graham102
Bobby Jindal132
Scott Walker139
Rick Perry186

The following candidates make it to Round 2:

  • Donald Trump
  • Ted Cruz

Second Round:

Here are the vote counts for the second round. A candidate gets a vote if he/she has the highest number of stars in the truncated ballot. If multiple candidates get the same, highest, star count, then multiple candidates get a vote. In this sense, the second round is somewhere between Plurality and Approval.
