Re: “Did Ignacio Try to Kill Instant Runoffs for a Price?

What - and the people who are pushing IRV don't think they will be able to game the system for 3rd party candidates? That is one thing that IRV supporters keep parroting - that IRV helps 3rd party candidates. Please show me one 3rd party candidate who won using IRV when they didn't win using traditional runoffs? Can you show me a single election where IRV resulted in a minority candidate being elected that wouldn't have been elected using traditional runoffs?

And there is ample evidence that seniors, non-English speakers, and folks with literacy challenges tend to have less foreknowledge that they will have to rank their choices than other groups - thus disenfranchising those voters?

And IRV is more expensive than traditional general elections and runoffs, or primaries and elections, when you factor in ALL the costs of extra voter education, increased training and processing costs, etc.
