    Some other preferential voting systems have a great deal of momentum and advocacy. And we already know, by assumption, how to decide between two candidates. In exploring the benefits of affect on voting, researchers have argued that affective states such as anxiety and enthusiasm encourage the evaluation of new political information and thus benefit political behavior by leading to more considered choices. We see that she has broad support — she is the first or second choice of every voter. But we would like to have some sort of understanding of how likely those situations are.

    One of the most powerful reactions is fear. This means, among other things, that the winner must beat every other individual candidate if they were the only two candidates in the race. The Borda count was the only other system that happened to get the right answer in this case, but it won't in general. As the international community increasingly tries to remake political systems from Albania to Zimbabwe, this study will be an important touchstone for policy-makers and analysts alike.

    Researchers have shown that one such variable may be political sophistication, with higher sophistication voters more likely to experience emotions in response to political stimuli and thus more prone to emotional biases in voting choice. A famous foundational result in voting theory is Arrow's Impossibility Theorem. If enough support Carl then he will win. In our survey data, we find situations where there exists a Condorcet winner but range voting selects someone else.

Usually they won't all have the same second choice, but in this example they do, and they all vote for Carl in the second round. Affect here refers to the experience of emotion or feeling, which is often described in contrast to cognition.

Different Condorcet methods differ in how they break ties cycles. The significant contribution of Arrow's analysis is the observation and proof that no voting system can be robust in all circumstances.
