When the number of candidates decreases the hunters have to vote for someone left in the list and as i said i don't think they will vote for pariston if they didn't already do it in the first round. But because of the 95% voters rule, they have to vote for someone so in the end it comes down to the one hunter besides pariston that will make it to the 1on1 round, whoever that may be.
uve given points why razor is seemingly not that dangerous, but honestly i havent seen anything from hisoka that would suggest hes that big a threat against razor.. no one has seen them both go all out, but so far id say razor showed me more, despite the fact weve knowm hisoka longer. phinx and the ryodans might agree with me on this one, id say. razor in deflecting gons powered up hit showed a lot of skill not just raw power, and raw destructive power rAzor has that too. anyways thats off topic. ans its ur opinion.
i wish it wasnt sais that killua is one of the most gifted in the zoldicks family history, now i find it hard to expect too much from illumi and allucka? so it was quite a surprise reAlly that hisoka ranked him that much. although im sure alluckas gonna be badass. illumi strikes me as someone who values family traditon and methodical so im curiois what allucka did to recieve that judgement. killua had hury family and ran away, and was forgiven so whats worse than that?
It takes a whle in HXH to hit your prime. This isn't like most manga where people are in their prime at 12 years old. Kuroro is in his 20s, and Hisoka looks about the same. Gin is in his 30s, and Razor looks roughly the same range too. It's perfectly fine that Killua is the most talented of his generation but not as strong as someone who has more time to develop, since he's really young at this point.
For Razor versus Hisoka, the dodgeball game is a test of physical strength + Reinforcement. All they're doing is throwing the ball with maximum strength + Reinforcement. Since the two are exactly 1 school away from Reinforcement, there is no inherent advantage to anybody. Biscuit even said it's somewhat disadvantageous for Razor because Gon can take an arbitarily amount of time to charge up given the rules. In a display of pure physical power, Razor clearly overwhelmed all his opponents there. Does that mean there's no way he'll lose? No, but he certainly has an advantage. He's shown to be quite capable of using skilled manuevers. Emission is also inherently the strongest school in the mid range game, and he's shown to be at least as good as anybody at melee range. It doesn't mean he cannot possibly lose but anyone trying to fight him would have a lot to overcome.
Kalluto said he joined the Spiders to 'get my brother back, no matter what it takes'. I got the feeling the danger in Alluka is that he's involved with someone really dangerous, not necessarily just because of his power, which should not be higher than Killua's no matter what given the stated talent levels and age.
If you don't get your choice it's sometimes still better that the worst case does not happen. In this case I think that it will come down to a very small group of candidates. Pariston will obviously be one, Ging might aswell but he might drop, so that the non-Pariston-votes are not further distributed.
Like Hergipotter I think that Paristons number of votes will not change much. And misspelling someones name doesn't count so the 48 people that did not cast a regular vote are force to do it or at least most of them since the 48 persons are missing to complete the 95%. That is if we assume that no one of the absent voters will vote thought some of them will and I guess Gon might have the deciding vote in the end
ps: I counted all the votes and got two times 581 regular votes. Could be a mistake since my eyes are pretty tired but maybe someone did count it too
Unless Gin's goal is to assassinate Pariston, there's not much to be gained by getting his guard down at this point. In fact, Pariston pretty much already stated that he thought the election was over, regardless of whose method was picked. It's really not possible for his guard to be lowered than what it currently is! Pariston commands an overwhelming lead at the moment, so he has no need to even use any dirty tricks. One would imagine his campaign will just be your standard "Vote for me, better benefits for all!" and there would be no particular weakness to doing something as generic as that.
Pariston will be a target later, but right now the only guy who might be hunted are the other candidates against Pariston.

An observation, Netero picked Pariston as one of the Zodiac and that certainly wasn't because Pariston is a crazy admirer of Netero. He got to the position of vice chairman and even though people know he's shady, they can't do anything about it. This implies Pariston is incredibly talented at political things, and is a valuable asset to the association. Looking at the characters that are present so far, he does look like the most capable character to lead the Hunter's Association. Gin said his goal wasn't to change the outcome of the election. I think there's a very good chance that Gin's plan is to force Pariston to make some concessions and stop his shady tactics. I see no indication why anyone else would lead better than Pariston out of all the candidates so far. If Pariston can be convinced/persuaded to just take a more administrative role as the chairman, that seems like a good enough victory for Gin.

Maybe there wasn't an opportunity yet. But not necessarily assassinate, or make him lose the election by overwhelming his popularity. Pariston could be expelled from Hunter association if his crimes are ever uncovered. And one doesn't need to search outside for evidence in order to do that, Pariston himself knows what he did, and will try to keep doing it. It's all a game about making him commit a huge mistake, one that he can't cover-up.
A guy that walks a dangerous path like him has already commited several ones, otherwise Ox would never have guessed he had something to do with the disappearings. All that's left is someone to take those opportunities and use them efficiently against Pariston. Hard? Yes. But not impossible ("Rank 'D' I suppose..."). And I bet Gin is after that.
There's no reason for Pariston to try anything risky at this point of the election given his numerical advantage. Obviously someone's got to make a move to put some pressure on him, but I'm thinking whoever's making the move is part of the hunted, because you'd have to do something pretty shady to even have a shot at overcoming Pariston's advantage. I'm assuming you're not going to see someone rally a ton of support behind 'Will of Netero' or 'World Peace' or anything along these lines.
You have to consider they are several elections away from defeating pariston though. There are going to be more votes available soon enough and there is time for a mistake to be made on pariston's part and even expose his doings. Of course, it would not be easy but the possibilities are there. I would think the people who did not vote for pariston probably won't go for him next round, after all they are probably not temps.
Wow, because of Hisoka's statements, people are estimating tiers as if we've seen any of the Zodiac fight. Everybody eats up whatever this character thinks about and says.
But yeah I kinda get why Hisoka thinks that way, I mean, I really can't take some of these Zodiac seriously mainly because of how they look. It's like they took one look at a random One Piece manga page and BAM! Costumes.
Illumi's statements are also weird. Gon and Killua would die? What the hell did they do? Probably because of Killua's growing closeness to Gon and his drifting away from the family business?
And what's up with the 5th Zoldick son?
And I'm sure Zoldycks are not the only ones killing people as a family tradition :P
Revealing, exposing, sharing, changing, making someone as him fell into a bigger trap...Hunt is a word that can mean many things and more if it comes from Ging.
