  •  IRV vs Condorcet (none)
    IRV doesn't solve the sort of problems that I would want solved.

    Approval is superior to IRV and very easy to explain. In a country that actually had reasonable voting conditions, it should be easy to implement.

    For IRV, all it really accomplishes is allowing people like me to vote for Greens without feeling conflicted that I'm throwing my vote away. Once a third party actually becomes potentially competitive, I have to make the very same lesser-evil choices I do in plurality. Worse yet, there are times when I should rank candidates out of order, strategically. This never occurs in Condorcet.
