    If the "winner" of a three way (or more) race fails to get a majority of
people's votes, yet gets a plurality and is declared the 'winner', is he
legitmately the people's representative?  What if his other two opponents are
more similarly inclinded and together represent the majority of voters?

    Is this minority candidate truly the people's voice?
