Are Republican Women in New Jersey "Extremists"?

Alex Hays of the County Council-dominated Pierce County Better Government League has called those who favor the retention of Instant Runoff Voting (IRV) (aka RCV) extremists.

The list of people who favor IRV includes President Barack Obama who introduced legislation in the Illinois State Senate to move to RCV. It also includes George Amick writing on the Republican Women of Mercer County, New Jersey website.

Another example is the Republicans in Utah. I gather they should be considered extremists.

In New York, a Democratic State Senator has introduced a bill to implement IRV. In this article, it points out that in many cases minorities do poorly in Top 2 systems and IRV would be an improvement for them.

Even the Academy Awards will now be determined using IRV.

All of these extremists do not compare to John McCain. Yes, that John McCain.

Judging from the Pierce County Better Government League output, all of these people are likely extremists.
