Let Jf(X)(¢) be the realization of the heart once the electorate has responded to ¢, and let it denote all lotteries over Jf. Then our formal model assumes that the political outcome, g(X)(¢), belongs to it(X)(¢). As ¢ varies, then g is a continuous selection from it. If we impute preferences to political agents then, knowing g, we may solve the implicit game, g, to deduce Nash equilibria, ¢*, to this game. This is a model of high generality, but of little applicability if we cannot model party preferences or the electoral response, X, appropriately.

The further we move down in one column towards the main diagonal, the less negative or the more positive the percentage differences have to become. Take, for example, the FOP column for West Germany. When contrasted with the PDS, a majority of voters decide in favor of the Free Democrats, making the percentage difference negative.
