There is a problem with the first of the two evaluation methods I
described, in that it doesn't work when you have two or more overlapping
sets of equally ranked votes. Two weak candidates could defeat each
If you convert (A=B) to (B>A), and (B=C) to (C>B), before dropping
anyone, you get:
24C > 23B > 12A; C wins.
Under the (correct) second method, you drop A first. You now have:
Drop C; B wins.
