As Mr. Ossipoff well knows the simple Condorcet method only indicates
relative support.

He apparently would see no problem if the only candidates were Hitler, Stalin
and Genghis Khan as long as Condorcet produced a winner detested the least.

He continually ignores my comments that any tie breaker is done only after
head to head pairings are done.

My standard remains majority rule. His standard is obviously the lesser of 2
evils (which in many cases would just mean a minority winner with a somewhat
higher percentage approval than the ordinary plurality winner).
