There does not seem to be any statistical Q&A so I assume all the statisticians are on this site.
This question is very theoretical and is based on analysing voting systems. I have a very simple example here that does not include millions of people across various demographics.
I have outlined 2 red lines that try to determine a voting trend.
- Top 2 candidates did very well with a mean vote of 40 between them
- Bottom 3 candidates have far less votes but seem to create their own trend.
The cyan lines are a visual attempt to establish trends and display established trends for these 2 groups. A total vote mean is identified in green and does not intersect with any trend.
The values of the elections are:
- Voters that participated 96
- Votes cast 96/288 (Each voter could vote for up to 3 candidates)
My main question is how do I calculate the probability of voters that cast 1 vote, 2 votes and 3 votes in a cumulative result.
