sociology perspective

Every four years in the United States there is a presidential election, and after the election, nearly half the population readily accepts the leadership of the person for whom they did not vote. This is an example of:

egalitarian authority

charismatic authority

traditional authority

legal-rational authority

this is traditional right?
