Each possible complete ranking of the candidates is given a "distance"
score. For each pair of candidates, find the number of ballots that
the sum across all such pairs. The ranking with the least distance wins.
Kemeny-Young is vulnerable to [[Tactical voting|compromising]], [[Tactical voting|burying]], and [[Strategic nomination|crowding]].
It can be shown that this ranking is the one with the lowest distance score (this is because this is the [[Condorcet ranking]], and therefore switching any pair of candidates would require overturning the majority of voters in that pairing rather than the minority). Therefore, the winning ranking is Nashville>Chattanooga>Knoxville>Memphis, and so the winning candidate is Nashville.
