It's true that we we don't discuss most voting systems here--only the ones 
that we really like.

(But we discuss IRV and Borda a little, just because they're fairly 
frequently proposed or mentioned in popular articles).

Nanson meets Condorcet's Criterion, but it fails all the defensive strategy 
criteria, and Monotonicity. I don't know what, if any, criteria Nanson 
meets, other than Condorcet's Criterion. But even if it meets some, it fails 
the ones that I consider important, the ones that relate to getting rid of 
the notorious lesser-of-evils problem.
