<br>exist in several forms: margin -RP(m), relative margin -RP(rm)- and
winning votes-RP(wv). RP(m) is the simplest, RP(rm) is the most representatives
for sincere ballots (In My Humble Opinion) and RP(wv) is the most resisitant
to unsincere truncation strategies. So the above comment maybe true only
for RP(m).
<br>Still, I know that RP(wv) garantees to protect a strong Condorcet winner
(with a majority against every other candidate). RP(m) and RP(rm) only
protect a stronger Condorcet winner (with 66% support against every other
candidate). Neither can protect
<br>a weak Condorcet winner.
<p>However, I have designed a RP(winning votes) method on an extended graph
that I think can protect even a weak Condorcet Winner. This method like
any Condorcet Ranking
<br>can be generalized to produce weights as an output so to be used in
a PR multiple-winners method.
<p>I hope it helps,
