Condorcet vs. 5

Fri Nov 8 20:22:47 PST 1996

The six more common methods rate as follows, in my opinion, in their relative
ability to get a single winner favored by a majority. 
rankings= candidates are ranked 1, 2, 3, etc.

1. Plurality (no rankings)
2. Top 2 go to runoff (no rankings)
3. Instant run off (rankings)
4. Condorcet (rankings)
5. Limited approval voting (rankings)
6. Plain Approval voting (no rankings- all candidates are in effect ranked 1)

Other methods may be added. Is there a 7th method which puts Condorcet in the
middle ???
