Practice Questions PS 391 List the six reasons for modeling and then choose the three of those six that would best  apply to our spatial voting model Explain: why candidates position themselves where they do on a spectrum Inductively explore Humility: shows how little we know about how to determine where to move in order to  beat our opponents. Predict Patterns Predict Points Real Time Decision aids: had to do with spatial voting bc shows why someone votes for  one candidate over another How does the variance in preferences matter for the likelihood of a standing ovation? (30  words)  Variance makes it so that some people are more likely to like the show and stand and the  more people that stand the more others will follow. Especially if the variance is within  one social group who all follow each other.
