    The SCOTUS is more of a political body than it once was. When it comes to political law, they’re totally political. Harder to tell though when the issue is establishment v notions of justice as opposed to regular partisanship.

    My guess they will ignore pleas for justice to minor parties altogether but will have a lopsided vote to basically tell Washington to stop refering parties in the preference space allotted but find everything else the state is doing as benign, lifting a lot of burden from them in the legal sense.

    This nations political establishment has/will have only a slightly complicated relationship with the top-two system in that bemusement will be projected but they/it love it, it simply offers more predictability, careerists embrace it too.

    Top 2 — one more WRONG MORON FIX — for the divided majority math problem with 2 or more candidates.


    P.R. and nonpartisan App.V — pending advanced Condorcet head to head math (from the 1780s – repeat 1780s)

    — regardless of ALL of the STONE AGE gerrymander robot party hacks in ALL elections since 4 July 1776.
