Cumulative support across rankings is a way to measure how quickly a candidate consolidates support.
For example, only 28% of voters ranked Bernie Sanders as their first choice, but 49% ranked him in their top two, and 62% ranked him in their top three. Only Sanders and Biden were ranked in the top three rankings by a majority of voters.
