### HideShow timer Statistics

Shortly before the elections in City C, many eligible voters polled stated they objected to the mayor's plans for the police force. Yet the mayor was elected by a 60% majority. So, at least 60 percent of the voters supported the mayor's plans for the police force.

The conclusion of the argument above depends on which of the following assumptions?

a) People who object to a politician's position will not vote for the politician.
b) Some of the people in the poll have some involvement with the police force.
c) Everyone who voted for the mayor did so primarily because they didn't agree with his plans for the police force.
d) Sixty percent of the voters elected the mayor because of his plans for the health care system.
e) Most of the people polled did not vote in the election

A it is....

a little twisted question this one...

Argument says “atleast 60% supported the mayor decisions because 60% voted”

A is the logical premise for the outcome
