The item you're replying to is this:
- Joachim Breitner
- Not close to winning...
- I’m not sure if you can really say that you have not been “close to winning“. Thanks to Condorcet voting, we can see that, if Zack had not been running (a realistic prognosis for next year), you had been the clear winner of the vote.
Also, I would not look so much as the votes comparing you with zack; even if a majority of people would think „I believe Wouter would be almost as good a DPL as zack“, the result can look as if he trashed you. More important are the votes comparing you with NOTA, and while Zack gets indeed very good results there, yours are not much worse than, say, the result that got Steve into office in 2008.
