Quoting Kevin Venzke, who quoted Benham:

26 A>B
25 B>A
49 C

Mutual Majority elects {A,B}

Now add 5 A bullet votes:

26 A>B
25 B>A
49 C
5 A

Now Mutual Majority elects {A,B,C}.

I guess I don't understand "mutual majority", then, because after adding 5
votes it takes 53 votes to have a majority, and only A has a majority. B is
51/105 and C is 45/105.

Five bullet-votes for A appear to change (A,B) to (A).
