I know that i am just stuck in Condorcet land and I haven't completely groked MJ (because i don't like the ballot), but can you guys help me understand how **any** candidate beats the Condorcet Winner in a runoff?
If you have an election method and subject that winner of that
method to the CW (whom must have been chosen from ranked-ballot results) in a runoff, does not always the CW win?  If so, then why not just elect the CW?
