Chattanooga and Knoxville both get under half a point per voter, and are eliminated. Memphis is explicitly rejected by a majority, and is eliminated. Nashville remains and wins.
 
If Memphis voters tried to strategize by rejecting Nashville at 0 in the above scenario, it would have no effect.
If Memphis voters tried to strategize by rejecting Nashville at 0 in the above scenario, it would have no effect. If Chattanooga and Knoxville tried to strategize by supporting each other, this has a chance of working, but Memphis could safely defend Nashville by accepting it. Since Memphis is almost guaranteed to be solidly rejected, this defensive strategy of accepting Nashville is probably a good idea. A mere 13% of "accept" from Memphis's 42% — that is, under a quarter of the Memphis population — would be sufficient to safely defend Nashville. That's because it would get 65 points, more than double the combined size of Chattanooga and Knoxville.
