Total Score chain climbing

Total Score chain climbing (TSCC) is a Condorcet completion method using an score-component. The motivation is to reduce burial incentive.

It works as follows:

1. Sort the candidates by increasing total score.

2. Starting with an empty "chain of candidates", consider each candidate in the above order and do a pairwise comparison: for each ballot:

- determine the maximum score in the "chain of candidates" for this individual ballot

- if the candidate has a higher score then this maximum score count this as a win,

- if the candidate has the same or a lower score then this maximum score count this as a loss

3. If there are more wins then losses add the candidate to the top of the chain.

4. The last added candidate wins.
