Why not IRV (Instant Run-off Vote) with remain, clean brexit, and May's plan. Seems simple enough for a referendum.

Caroline Thompson An Instant Run-off Vote (IRV). Vote for your first, and then second choices. That's it. Simple. My first choice would be remain. My second would be May's plan. Tally all the first choices. Something gets more than 50% that wins; otherwise the choice in last place gets eliminated. The people who picked the choice eliminated get their votes moved to their second choice. Now there's a winner. My guess is that remain and clean brexit would go on to the second round and most of the voters for May's plan would move to remain. The end.

Grant Walmer Three options gets so dicey though. Do you ask it in two questions? Or one with three options? But then how would the vote go? One vote or ranked voting? It's anything but simple

Metoric is a misnomer you should call it ballistic like. Metors fall, rockets follow a ballistic trajectory hence a quick rise...

Wayne Crannell my brother Wayne a good way to remember his name is by going by his race. He is Irish, so a good way to remember is by saying "potato." Yes, "Potato Francis O'Rourke" for President! yeah my father was Irish (Dillon), but he died when I was nine (in 74). However my mother is Mexican, and I lived in Mochis Sinaloa after pops passed. I NEVER ran across a Irish-man named Robert, called "Beto" for short! He's trying to appropriate my mother's culture!

For the love of all that is holy and the sweet little baby Jesus, Nate will you learn to pronounce Beto's name correctly. If you're doing it on purpose, it's neither cute nor some sort of intellectual contrarianism. It's HIS name. He has told us how to pronounce it. Just stop.

This was a clear and fairly deep overview of all the legal issues facing President Trump. It was balanced, and I appreciate that.

Not sure what the Midwest "punches above its weight" electorally means to you, but it sounds condescending. People in the midwest (IA) are as sophisticated in proportions of local population as Americans in any area of the country. People here just aren't as smug. There's no argument against our apportionment of electors any more than that of senators. It's by design. I think the other relevant component that forms perceptions among metro types that people in "flyover country" are cartoony bumpkins is a drastic underestimation of the uneducated, politically ignorant people living around them. You see the same thing between Des Moines and Iowans from more rural parts of the state (my hometown is pop. 26K). It's unfounded. All of that said, I listen to this pod religiously since discovering it, so don't be dicks to the corn people. PS - Green New Deal = another plan without a plan. AOC needs to prove she's more than a social media star, like Prez Peaches.

mike If anybody remembers the meeting with Trump, Schumer and Palocy(sp), it was Schumer's idea to shut down the government and Trump said "Fine! I'll take the responsibility and not blame you if that's what you want..." How is nobody mentioning it and now Schumer comes out the next day to give a speech of how Trump is an ass for shutting down the government like he had nothing to do with it.. What a joke.
