Yep, Voting Systems also wins Cloneproof SSD and Ranked Pairs.  In fact, Voting
Systems wins every pairwise comparison except that it ties with Multiwinner
systems, which loses to Movies.  When Voting Systems is removed from the
election, Presidential Candidates of 2000 becomes the winner using Cloneproof
SSD and Ranked Pairs, so it could be considered the second-placer.  Months and
Nonpresidential Nicknames lose every pairwise comparison except that they tie
each other.

The votes that I fed into my little program were:

1:E>C>H>B>J>G=K>A=F=I=L>D=M   (<--- my vote, obtained from CR input)

where A through M are the choices in order.  Let me know if you find an error
in my analysis.
