Yep. And If you know Peter then you know he does not indulge in
nonsensical problems.

Allow me to make a modest proposal (apology to J. Swift)

Rather than vote for the candidate you like the MOST, let's change it
so everyone votes for the candidate they like the LEAST. Then, the
candidate with the FEWEST votes gets elected! Absurd? Think about it!
