Difference with Ranked Pairs[edit source]

Hi User:VoteFair, this is the first time I've read this article, and I've only skimmed it. However, it seems somewhat unlikely that this method differs substantially from Tideman's Ranked Pairs (RP). Could you provide an example where this method chooses a different candidate than RP? -- RobLa (talk) 07:03, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

This is not a Condorcet method because it does not always yield the Condorcet winner. It's basically IRV with the addition of eliminating Condorcet losers when they occur. Currently I'm developing an example that compares it to IRV, which is the bigger competitor in the field of methods actually being considered for adoption. I have mathematically compared it to the Condorcet-Kemeny method and posted those preliminary results on the E-M forum. The similarity to the Arrow-Raynaud method was mentioned to me by Forest S. so that's something I mention here but have not yet explored in depth. (PS, recently I donated to the Miratze(?) site to help support this wiki, so I'll add that I greatly appreciate your work here on this wiki. Thanks RobLa!!)
