Two further comments.

Although Thornbird did not have a high percentage of the total vote, it
did win by a large margin.

And another reason the winning percentages can be expected to be low is
that there are more TB's eligible than there used to be. This is by
design, trying to split the TB vote, so than some worthy candidate in
another class will have a chance. While I still have problems with the
concept of awarding 3 Wister Medals, the goal is a very good one, and I
can't think a better way of achieving it
