Schwarzenegger was Condorcet winner; VPR and Candidate
Withdrawal to simplify voter strategy (was Re: Arrow's theorem
and cardinal voting systems) (Steve Eppley)
VPR has been mentioned from time to time in the context of what Warren Smith has dubbed "asset voting," and I used to call "candidate proxy." It turns out that Charles Dodgson was way ahead of us on this.
Some version of VPR is what we need for these huge elections. I think the recall election in California that elected Schwarznegger has to be the world record holder for the most number of candidates in a gubernatorial race (I wasn't trying to imply anything about the election results with the word "propelled.")
