Mr Rob,

Supposition about the supporters of the Hare system is not science. I can easily substantiate the independent inventors of proportional representation, Thomas Hare and Carl Andrae. Their method the proportional count of the preference vote is based on the foundation of our civilisation, in the sciences and the arts, namely order and proportion.
To be more specific, it conforms to the work of S. S. Stevens, in Science, in the 1940s, on the scales of measurement, including the ordinal scale and the ratio scale, conspicuous by their absence in so many dud voting methods, not entirely absented from this mailing list.

I'm not sure.  What (in your mind) would be the competing hypothesis?
How would one invalidate the intuitions drawn from a two-dimensional
projection of voter preferences?
