Merge with Kemeny-Young Maximum Likelihood Method

Is this the same method as Kemeny-Young Maximum Likelihood Method. -- RobLa (talk) 08:14, 16 August 2020 (UTC)

No! They are NOT the same.
What IS needed is to edit the page Kemeny-Young Maximum Likelihood Method to point out that it has two other names, namely Condorcet-Kemeny and VoteFair popularity ranking.
In other words, the word "popularity" is a very important qualifier. It distinguishes between VoteFair ranking and VoteFair popularity ranking.
For reference, the Wikipedia page named Kemeny-Young method has the correct info. However that title was chosen by Markus Shulze who dislikes the Kemeny method because it so closely competes with "his" method, so he made a point not to include the word Condorcet, and instead included the less-important name "Young".
