Plot the decision boundaries of a VotingClassifier

Plot the decision boundaries of a VotingClassifier for two features of the Iris dataset.

Plot the class probabilities of the first sample in a toy dataset predicted by three different classifiers and averaged by the VotingClassifier.

First, three exemplary classifiers are initialized (DecisionTreeClassifier, KNeighborsClassifier, and SVC) and used to initialize a soft-voting VotingClassifier with weights [2, 1, 2], which means that the predicted probabilities of the DecisionTreeClassifier and SVC each count 2 times as much as the weights of the KNeighborsClassifier classifier when the averaged probability is calculated.
