I was wondering is there any way to quantify how much "power" a given selection has on the final outcome of a voting. More specifically, say you have a sample 330,000 people and you need to pick one. However, before you get to make a choice a pre-selection is applied and the sample is narrowed to only 20 people, you then choose one person.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How significant is your choice compared to that of the pre-selection in determining who is finally chosen?
