The non-truncated method is the only method fully consistent with the
assumptions that (1) the CW should be the winner if there is one, (2)  if
there is no CW, then the candidate C1 with greatest first place support
should be one of the finalists in a runoff, and (3) the voters that do not
support the first finalist C1 have the right to determine who the other
finalist is. 
D- C1 in (2) above may have a small percentage of the first place votes if 
there are a *large* number of candidates.

Example 10 candidates--

100/10 = 10 percent average

C1 may have 15 percent of the first place votes.

Can C1 get a YES majority among ALL of the voters ???
