Description
A distinction in reasons and motives for choosing a particular political leader establishes the key difference between older and young democracy. The former is based on electoral history, while the latter is based on feelings and personal attitude. Besides, a comparatively abundant number of political figures (persons or parties and associations) is specific for young democracies. The problem of a reference votes' distribution is analyzed. Lefevbre's theory of a reflexive control is supposed to make the basis for indifferent choice of political figures. This theory yields a golden section split of votes (or the series of Fibonacci numbers, for the case of multiple choice). A typology of political campaigns based on this theory is proposed. A proximity of ratings of competing persons means the highest electoral tension, a leadership of a person means a high level of mobilization; a neutral situation corresponds to Fibonacci numbers distribution of votes.
