Abstract

Cet article se place dans le cadre d'un modèle de pure politique redistributive entre trois groupes d'électeurs. Il compare deux variantes de la compétition électorale entre deux partis, l'objectif d'un parti étant soit la probabilité de victoire ("jeu du tournoi majoritaire"), soit le nombre de voix obtenues ("jeu de la pluralité"). On exhibe des équilibres en stratégies mixtes pour ces deux variantes. En moyenne tous les individus sont traités de la même manière dans le jeu de la pluralité, alors que le jeu du tournoi majoritaire favorise les individus appartenant aux petits groupes.
