You are going to have to walk me though this one. Here's what I see
happening under Manoj's proposal:
with presence for the purposes of meeting quorum.
another example: DPL election, two candidates, R=45
Condorcet: D wins
Proposed: A wins
Amended: D wins
here we have a case where ten times the number of people think that both
candidates are so rotten, they would rather see no one in office. a
minority of a voters would like to see their candidate win. under the
proposed mechanism, the minority of the voters win, because the loud
majority voice was squelched by the per-option implementation of quota.
45 voters prefer A to D, which is equal to R, so A "meets quorum".
No voters prefer B to D, which is less than R, so B does not meet
quorum, and is eliminated.
More voters prefer D over A than A over D, so A is eliminated as not
The only remaining candidate to feed into the SSD procedure is D, so D wins.
How do you get A winning?
