That's a good idea, we can do that kind of analysis too.

However, I was thinking of doing the SD2 poll separately from the Condorcet
vote, and the names people enumerate on the SD2 question can be those of any
member of Mensa, not just the candidates. So that we get a real graph of all
of the voters and the relations between that, and get the highest-ranking
from that.

It would be interesting to see how many of the resulting highest-ranking are
actually candidates.
