So, would you explain what you consider to be "more than half the
voters". You can start with this example:
18 AB 17 BA 15 CA
18 AC 17 BC 15 CB
------ ------ ------
36 + 34 + 30 = 100
Do any of these candidaates have "more than half the voters"?
I am expecting you to say that the group that voted for candidate A
contains more than half the voters(68).
If so, Then I must point out to you that the groups that voted for
candidate B and C also have "more than half the voters"(67 and 65)
according to your defination.

D- IF (repeat, IF) each vote is an Approval type YES vote, then obviously A, B
and C each have YES majorities. How many executive/judicial candidates will
get YES majorities in real world elections ?
Head to Head--
A 51, B 49
B 52, C 48
C 47, A 53
A beats both B and C head to head and is thus the Condorcet Winner.
