Let say the electorate consists of three segments of voters: 1, 2, and 3 with corresponding weak preference relations defined over the candidates. Let the preferences be given by --
Segment 1: Biden > Warren > Sanders; Biden > Sanders.
Segment 2: Warren > Sanders > Biden; Warren > Biden.
Segment 3: Sanders > Biden > Waren; Sanders > Warren.
Question: Derive the preference relation of the electorate, decided by majority rule. As a preferences of the electorate as a whole rational? Why or why not.
For this question, I feel like it would not be possible to derive a preference relation of the entire electorate because it seems that no one candidate is strongly/weakly preferred. Therefore, it would seem that the preferences of the entire electorate would not be rational because it does not satisfy the transitive and completeness principles. Would I be correct in thinking this way and that a net preferece relation may not be derived? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
