even if you use the Hare Quota, STV violates
house-monotonicity.
Example:
28 voters vote A > C > B > D.
40 voters vote B > A > C > D.
32 voters vote C > A > B > D.
80 voters vote D > A > C > B.
[180]

D- Elect 2
Hare quota = 180/2 = 90
I note that D is in last place by 100 voters so D cannot get a quota (90)
before A, B or C does. That is, D is a Condorcet loser with N = 2.
That is, there should be a check for Condorcet losers, especially if N is
small or if there is a large number of candidates/N ratio.
A gets 28 + 80 = 108 -90 = 18 more for C
50 C vs. 40 B. C wins
Final A 90, C 90.
Also, whenever any candidate gets a quota, then there should be a check for
more Condorcet losers and clones among the remaining candidates.
For N = 3, D is still a Condorcet loser. A,B and C would be elected.
