Tideman's method fails to meet Fishburn's "No-Show Criterion".
***
Example 1:

37 voters vote C > A > B > D.
20 voters vote B > D > A > C.
18 voters vote A > D > C > B.
15 voters vote B > D > C > A.
07 voters vote D > A > C > B.
03 voters vote C > B > A > D.
***
Thus: Candidate C wins the election.

Example 2:

Suppose, that additional 6 voters vote
B > D > C > A. Then, we have:

37 voters vote C > A > B > D.
20 voters vote B > D > A > C.
18 voters vote A > D > C > B.
21 voters vote B > D > C > A.
07 voters vote D > A > C > B.
03 voters vote C > B > A > D.
***
Thus: Candidate A wins the election.

D- I note the first and second choices and the totals ---

(100 voters- 51 majority)

A  18  44   62  Should A win ?
B  35  03   38
C  40  00   40
D  07  53   60

(106 voters- 54 majority)

A  18  44    62
B  41  03    44
C  40  00    40
D  07  59    66  Should D win ?
