Well, let's see:
-Well built/reminds them of adult
-mild manner, rational
-blows conch/reminds kids of a megaphone
-listens to opinions
-ugly and not in a funny way
-skinny bony pointy finger
-erratic, irrational, immature, crazy dictator complex
-doesn't blow conch until ch. 10 or something
-hates listening to opinions other than his own
-likes stabbing his knife into trees and crying when nobody is looking.
Ralph does win the initial election. Initially the boys are drawn to Ralph, "he had a mildness about him that proclaimed no devil". The choir vote for Jack; this is out of both fear and habit. As most of the boys turn into violent little sociopaths, Jack starts to look better.
