However, Schofield (1986) shows that such a core is "structurally unstable", since small perturbations in party positions destroy the core property. Nonetheless, it can be inferred that the FDP is pivotal.

The further we move down in one column towards the main diagonal, the less negative or the more positive the percentage differences have to become.
