Single winner study

This is happening tomorrow for those who are not aware

Its a study comparing Plurality, IRV, Approval and Score. Condorset methods are ignored as usual.

That’s too bad. It was nice to see CES including a pairwise comparison table when analyzing the Super Tuesday results. (https://www.electionscience.org/commentary-analysis/super-tuesday-deep-voting-methods-dive/)

Actually, it seems they did discuss pairwise results in the study that the discussion is premised around: (https://halshs.archives-ouvertes.fr/halshs-01972097/document), which they summarized in (https://www.electionscience.org/commentary-analysis/approval-voting-honest-voters-had-a-preference-in-2016/)

As are the rated runoff methods.

It would seem based off the data in the study that either Sanders or Clinton would win in rated runoff methods, since they had the highest ratings in Approval and Score.

I don’t really miss Condorcet methods but I definitely wish they would analyze STAR voting. That method has more traction right now than (non-Approval) plain Score.
