Actually, the 35 votes matter a great deal in an RP election -
assuming you are referring to '35 B>C>A'
These 35 votes are a part of the pairwise defeat of B>C being the
strongest (has a strength of 75), which in turn eventually causes the
pairwise defeat of C>A (with a strength of 60) to be rejected because
of the potential creation of a cycle (i.e. ambiguous result).
