Yes. There are probably better systems available to us -- and they're almost all better than first past the post -- but RCV is a good first step.

Approval voting, for example, would be a sensible way for a major political party to apply to its primary systems. Now, there are lots of obstacles to doing that, most notably that states control their own processes, but we'll never do anything smart if we don't start trying to at some point.
