Just after the election I too was hopeful.
However I have lost that optimism as a result of seeing that most voters
have become distracted by other, less-important, election issues, such
as voter suppression, "fake news," Russian hacking, gerrymandering,
electoral college votes, cabinet-member choices, etc.
Compared to those issues, banning single-mark ballots would have far
more success. Alas, we have not been able to get that concept across.
I was also optimistic that Canada would follow through on the prime
minister's promise to abandon "first-past-the-post," but that has ended
with no reform because election-method reformers cannot agree on what to
replace FPTP with.
As I said earlier, now my focus is on planning videos that are both more
entertaining and easier to understand compared to the books and articles
