If, in certain elections by IRO (aka MPV, Alternative Vote, Preferential
Voting) 80% of the winners possessed a 1st choice majority, then they'd
have won in a Plurality election, and it hasn't been demonstrated that
MPV has improved on Plurality. This goes along with somethign that
I said earlier, that the conditions that will make MPV ok will also
make Pluralitly ok. We need something that works even when
Plurality doesn't.
