This idea just popped into my head, which means I haven't thought about it
in much detail. I'm pretty sure someone has already come up with this.
Anyway, voters have three different ways they can vote for candidates -
dissaprove, approve and strongly approve. Then, conduct a pairwise count,
where for a pairwise comparison on each ballot;
If both A and B are strongly approved, they each get 1 point
If A is ranked over B, A gets 1 point and B gets 0 points
If both A and B are approved, they each get 1/2 point
If both A and B are dissaproved, they get 0 points

D- As usual I note that *absolute* ratings go from plus 100 percent to minus
100 percent.
An extreme example-
Absolute ratings
V = Voters
V A B
51 +1 -100
49 -100 +100
100
Is A elected (despite any *low* utility) ???
Add a third choice with various voter ratings of
C > A > B
A > C > B
A > B > C
and the reverse
B > A > C
B > C > A
C > B > A
Throw in some equal ratings-
A=B=C
A=B
B=C
C=A
