7:44 am
congressional, executive branch and state legislative branching. we have no executive branch elections this year -- >> but june. at all this year. so what happens here is the top two candidates, just like it says, get the most votes in june s. will run off againstr against each other in november. or two republicans for that matter. it also mines that if one gets let's say 90% of the vote and the next is 5%, 6%, 10%, those two will mace off again, even though the first one won more than the majority in june. it's crazy that way, not what people expected. >> that's what i thought. i mean, we're seeing how it works. let's talk about why we switched this system. you can see why there would be pros and cons.
7:45 am
>> people try to make things better. if prouponents wanted to re -- and nominating influences. one democrat, one republican, that kind of thing. instead they wanted to make sure the best two candidates should be running off against each other in the fall. look. that's one idea. they also thought the system might provide more moderate candidates, because california has a tendency that's the way we think a lot of times. this is the first time we're see it statewide. >> you try to make changes, and sometimes the change you think you're going to make tirn out to be different. we haven't done it yet, but it's clear here that it would make it
7:46 am
much more costly, why? okay. fine, they will face off against each other in june. who are wins, will face off again each other in november. so they have to fund raise twice. but we're also saling a weakening of minor parties, why? because none is likely to be the top candidate of the two. so -- allowing them to vote, they're going to pretty much be gone. so as producing, let's say a bunch of more moderate candidates, which is what a lot of people hoped, so far we haven't seen signs of that. if it does, it will be down a ways down the road. you gave the example. can that person get that 5%
7:47 am
concede and then avoid that costly second runoff election? or is there a mechanism? >> the chances are is if you manage to get into the top two, you'll say, what do i have to lose? there's my name. i'm automatically there. the more interesting thing is when you have candidates who have spent a lot of money in a tight race, one wins, and they still have to go again and fund raise even more. in an era where people are bemoaning the costs of campaigns, yet found another way to increase the costs again, which will make campaign consultants very happy. >> somebody should be happy. thank you, larry. if up more insight, look for prop 0, that's his blog. a major shake-up could be on the way in greece. angry voters are ready to punish both of the country's major
