Aaron Hamlin of the Center for Election Science tweeted yesterday that polls conducted using approval voting indicated much wider support for Warren than did our first past the post system. This would have been a good year to experiment with approval voting, especially with candidates who are a little further out on the policy spectrum than we normally see. A candidate "winning" a state with 34% of the vote doesn't really tell us much. The only thing we learn is that two thirds of the voters had that candidate somewhere between second and last on their list.
