    Wish I know more about this, but as no one else has replied.

    Not an expert, but from my little understanding.

    Yes, 0 would be the nash equilibrium for 2 candidates. Each would get 1/2 of the votes, and any deviation from 0 would result in a loss of votes.

    For three candidates, suppose two of then go for zero, then the third candidate can get almost half the votes by being slightly off zero, whilst the first two get a quarter each.
