This paper identifies necessary and sufficient single-profile conditions for a consistent decision under a supermajority rule. It is demonstrated that a preference profile generates a transitive supermajority rule relation if and only if it is not sufficiently balanced. These conditions link transitivity of a supermajority rule to the cardinal outcomes of plurality and anti-plurality elections.
