# Sum of Defeats

The **Sum of Defeats** voting method is a single-winner ranked election method where a candidate X's score is the sum of the strength of all of X's pairwise victories. The candidate with the highest score wins.

If the pairwise matrix is wv, then the method passes Condorcet. It does not necessarily pass Condorcet for pairwise opposition.

It passes the majority criterion but fails mutual majority and clone independence.
