Scotusblog Lists Washington State "Top-Two Open Primary" On its List of Cert Petitions to Watch

On June 11, Scotusblog listed the Washington state lawsuit over the constitutionality of top-two election systems in its “cert petitions to watch.” See this link. Scroll down to the heading “Petitions of the day.” Thanks to Thomas Jones for this news.

    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.
