34 ABC
33 BCA
32 CAB

66 A B 33  margin 33
67 B C 32  margin 35
65 C A 34  margin 31

I note again that simple rankings do NOT show *absolute* support (on a 100 to 
-100 percent scale) but ONLY *relative support.

Which, if any, of the choices can get a YES majority ???

How much did Condorcet discuss *absolute* support (versus *relative* support)
