This lecture is part of a course from The Great Courses called Mind-Bending Math: Riddles and Paradoxes taught by Professor David Kung, Ph.D.. This course and over 300 other courses can be accessed with a subscription to The Great Courses Plus.

Learn about the complex mathematical scenarios behind many of the most popular voting methods in the United States and around the World. Professor David Kung, Ph.D. lays out how different voting methods lead to different results especially when three or more candidates are introduced. He examines the plurality systems and the popular vote, the Electoral College, runoff voting, majoritarian voting, and other systems. Look at examples of candidates winning such as Jesse Ventura’s historic gubernatorial victory in Minnesota where he only would’ve likely won with a popular voting system (and he did). The lecture will surely get you thinking about what voting system is best.
