 How accurate is rough consensus in percentage? As to the percentage of consensus, is that important? You will always have some hold outs. I would think a more important concern is the minority. If they are "persuaded" to accept a proposal, gaining their consensus, are they really satisfied or do they feel pressured? Are the minorities able to address issues important to them or are they always out consensus-ed? Do the "majority" cut health and education funding to minority neighborhoods? I believe a 50% + 1 consensus is enough to implement a proposal. It could always be revoked by the same method. To requite or expect 75% - 100 % would likely cause bargaining of votes, I vote for yours you vote for mine and develop lobbyists to gain and "negotiate votes. Back to "party's" Uff Da.
