''Plurality with run-off and triangulars''
( 2011, Vol. 31 No.1 )
In this paper we explore some aspects of the plurality rule with run-off, with respect to triangulars. Over the universal domain and under the impartial anonymous culture (IAC), we provide frequencies that (i) a triangular occurs, and (ii) a Condorcet winner - or a Condorcet loser - wins the election after a triangular. We also evaluate the likelihood of a triangular over the restricted domain of single-peaked preferences.
Keywords: Plurality with run-off, Triangulars, Impartial anonymous culture, Condorcet winner, Condorcet loser, Single-peakedness
