what is a plurality model

IT means the winner does not have to get the majority vote, but has to get the most votes. For instance three folks run, one gets 45 votes, one gets 35 votes, and one gets 20. The winner is the 45, even though she did not get a majority. She had the plurality of 45 over 35.
