How does ranked choice voting solve these problems?

Ranked choice voting allows parties to produce nominees with strong and widespread support, even in a crowded field of candidates. Voters feel free to choose the candidates they like best, without worrying that their vote will somehow help the candidate they like least. And letting them rank all their choices enshrines the sanctity of their right to vote rather than restricting it. Meanwhile, candidates of similar ideologies or backgrounds don’t have to worry about splitting support, and can even band together to form a coalition. The system incentivizes candidates to work together rather than attack one another in the hopes of earning backup choices, and to campaign to a broad swath of voters rather than just their own ‘base.’
