B has 32+28+24+6+2=92 Borda points C has 24+14+12+10+1=61 Borda points. D has 16+35+30+4+3=88 Borda points. E has 8+7+18+2+5=40 Borda points. B is the Borda winner with 92 points. b. There are 8+7+6+2+1=24 voters. A majority candidate needs 13 or more votes. Candidate D has 7+6=13 votes. Candidate D is the “should be” winner according to the majority criterion. Candidate B is the actual winner using the Borda count method. Because the actual winner is not candidate D, there is a violation of the majority criterion.
