That's still pretty tough to explain.

I had a friend who worked advocating for simple runoff voting initiatives, but gave up because it was too much work having to explain it to be people.

I dunno - Instant Runoff got a lot of traction, and that one is even harder to explain/count and can come up with crazier results, too. I've always thought Condorcet could get more traction if it were rebranded as "Instant Round Robin" or something. People understand round robin tournaments.

IRV is very simple to explain to people familiar with Majority/Runoff, since its basically a way of automating majority/runoff.
