I too find ranking easier than rating.

This seems to be a pattern.  Those of us who prefer ranking tend to 
prefer Condorcet methods, and those who prefer rating tend to prefer 
Range or Majority Judgement.

I will add that in a survey I prefer rating because I want to convey 
relative preferences that cross between the different questions.  But in 
elections, I do not care about expressing preferences across the 
different contests.
