A majority of guys favorite color is blue
Debate Rounds (3)
This can be proven by stats, and I feel that it is just a stereotype.
Merriam-Webster defines it as a number or percentage equaling more than half of a total.
So, majority would have to be over 50%.
So, for a majority of guys favorite color to be blue it would have to be over 50%.
Let's look at the stats.
Here is a graph that shows that blue is not a majority of guys favorite color.
Blue is at 42%. So, this would not be a majority of guys.
Although this is the most favorite color with guys when you add up all the other responses of the other colors you get 58%.
So, I would say that it is kind of mixed with males.
Here is another survey of favorite color for males and females.

What is your favorite color?
I think that you are confused by what majority means.
Because blue is not over 50%.
So, as you can see that stats show that a majority of guys favorite color is not blue.
Although it is the most favorite color with males it is not a majority because it is not over 50%.
You also use no legitimate sources, and everything you say is all opinion.
Whenever you define majority you leave out the second part of the definition. Let's look at a few definitions of the word.
According to dictionary.com it means:
the greater part or number; the number larger than half the total (opposed to minority):
A majority, then, consists of more than one-half of all the votes cast, while a plurality is merely the number of votes one candidate receives in excess of the votes for the candidate with the next largest number.
So, it has to be the number larger than half the total.
However with males blue is not above 50% it is at around 40%.
So, as one can see majority does not just mean the greater part or number it has to be larger than half the total.
This means that a majority of guys favorite color is not correct.
