Abstract: We investigate a model for opinion dynamics, in which individuals are modeled by vertices of a graph. As time progresses, neighboring individuals interact, which results in a realignment of their opinions closer towards each other and as a result triggers formation of a consensus. Our main focus is on strong consensus (i.e. global agreement of all individuals) versus weak consensus (i.e.
