    Not necessarily. If the if some minority representation built in that won't be literally true.

    Not the majority who want safe and legal abortion, some reasonable gun control, progressive income taxation, socialized medical insurance of some kind, clean air and water, demilitarized police, regulated banks, and equality of rich and poor under the law.

    For the past forty years a majority of Americans have consistently voted for politicians belonging to the Democratic Party in Federal elections for Congress and the Presidency. Did that majority get the government they wanted?

    No. You made a claim on this forum. Back it up on this forum. You said there was a voting method that is better than first-past-the-post. Demonstrate that that is true.
