You cannot
derive, from a Condorcet ballot collection, how much percentage support
each candidate got.  You can't give each candidate a share of 100% in a
way that all candidates would agree on.  If you can, I'd love to know

I reply:

For that purpose, report on the percentages of 1st choice support. The 
difference between that and the Plurality results percentages is that the 
Condorcet 1st choice votes are going to be a lot more sincere and meaningful 
than those of Plurality.
