A Note on the Probability of Having a Strong Condorcet Winner

A Note on the Probability of Having a Strong Condorcet Winner In an election, a strong Condorcet winner is a candidate who is top-ranked by more than 50% of the voters.

Abstract

In an election, a strong Condorcet winner is a candidate who is top-ranked by more than 50% of the voters. The purpose of this note is to provide some algebraic representations for the probability of having a strong Condorcet winner in three-candidate elections. Three alternative procedures for generating voting situations are considered: the Impartial Culture condition, the Impartial Anonymous Culture condition and the Maximal Culture condition. It turns out that the conclusions we obtain strongly depend on the way for generating voting situations.
