    Leicester only scores 20%? Seriously? There were only two options for the EU and for the US president.
    Leicester's achievement is arguably the greatest upset in sporting history but if you're not into football, you won't understand the technicalities and imbalances in modern football and you won't grasp the scale of what they did, hence poll results.

    It's like the Trump vote but several times over.

    LOL at this poll being anything other than 99% voting Leicester

    Leicester 5000/1
    Brexit 4/1
    Trump 4/1
    Exactly! People are just interpreting as it as "what upset you more".

    But then you gut the question of which is bigger: a larger upset to a few people, or a lesser upset to a lot of people?

    Brexit. America voting for the Donald fits entirely with that which I have experienced in much of small-town rural America. And there's a lot of it.
