Presidential endorsement paradox

Cornelius for CUSU President

At hustings, Varsity political reporter Louis Ashworth asked the wonderful question: “Who of the other presidential candidates would you most and least likely vote for?”. The results bothered me, because they clearly showed that endorsements are everything but transitive (transitivity means that if A implies B, and B implies C, then A implies C). Have a look at the figure to see what I mean.

Unfortunately, due to CUSU’s awkward election rules,  I’m not allowed to mention who candidates A and B are. The Tab, Varsity or TCS will be able to fill you in on that if they pick up on it.
