Spread of Democratic Frontrunner Rankings

In addition to seeing who voters may support if their top choice drops out (or is eliminated during an RCV count), a ranked poll provides opportunities to learn more about the breadth of support each candidate has. For instance, the below chart shows how many voters ranked each of the top five candidates first, second, third, fourth and fifth.

We can also see how many voters were willing to express some level of support for each candidate by simply cumulating the rankings. That is, if a candidate is ranked first, second or third by a majority of respondents, that demonstrates that the candidate has high overall approval in the field. The below graph has the cumulative rankings for all 20 candidates across all ten allowed rankings.
