“Unbreaking America: Solving the Corruption Crisis”
Does the will of we, the people, influence the bills that Congress passes? A study that took data from nearly 2,000 public-opinion surveys and compared what the people wanted to what the government actually did found that: “The preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy."

"The Benefits of Ranked Choice Voting"
This video includes a brief overview of ranked choice voting and the benefits of RCV.
From Government by the People.
Most videos related to ranked choice voting (including those linked here) explain the system in terms of electing a candidate to a single office (governor, lieutenant governor, etc.). We are in the process of producing a video that will explain how ranked choice voting can be used in electing members of a legislature. That video will be posted here as soon as it is finished.
