Note that our voting method is clone-proof, so one proposal cannot steal
votes from one another. That's one of the great things about Condorcet:
you can have similar proposals on the same ballot without causing the
votes to be split. Also numbers like "25%" don't really make sense with
Condorcet, unless you limit the calculation to two proposals.
