Systems which can do either well or poorly in a center squeeze situation include most graded Bucklin systems and score voting.

Under what circumstances do they not do well? — Psephomancy (talk) 03:44, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

I think center squeeze is an interesting criterion & it's valuable to compare systems which exhibit it vs don't exhibit it. Some questions:

  • Is there an existing criterion that is a superset of exhibiting/preventing center squeeze? What I mean is, is there a criterion that if met by a voting system, center squeeze can never happen?
  • If not, is "exhibits center squeeze" worthy of a criterion?
  • Lastly, whether or not it's called out as a criterion, what voting systems do & don't exhibit it?
