    The Excellent Exit Poll of General Awesomeness

    "Do you ever get the feeling that the only reason we have elections is to find out if the polls were right?" - Robert Orben

    Now that the polls have closed I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you all for a spirited election. There were some very snazzy manifestos and some compelling debates and it was a pleasure to serve.

    Based on the raw results without removing ineligible voters (and there were a LOT of those) the results would be as follows:

    Drum roll please...

    TSR Labour Party - 15 (+1)
    TSR Conservative Party - 13 (N/A)
    TSR UKIP - 7 (-1)
    TSR Liberal Party - 6 (-3)
    TSR Green Party - 4 (N/A)
    TSR Socialist Party - 4 (+2)
    TSR National Liberal Party - 1 (+1)

    As calculated using the D'hondt Method. 2.58% of voters choose to spoil their ballot. Blueberries are rich in antioxidants.

    HOWEVER, I've had a glimpse of how the REAL results would be if the voting had ended only hours earlier and the changes are dramatic. I will endeavour to have the official results ready for release tomorrow and they may well be very different to what you see here today.

    I think it's worth noting that even without the 'mass pm', once ineligible votes are discounted the turnout wasn't actually abysmal. I'd take that as good sign indeed.

    Here is some food for thought. If each party had the same proportion of votes removed as they did last time then Labour, the Socialists and the National Liberals' seat totals would be unchanged, the Conservatives and UKIP would lose 1 seat, and the Liberals and Greens would gain one seat. However I should stress that it doesn't look like things panned out the same way this time round.


    Best wishes,

    Ray :hat2:
    I'm not going to celebrate yet, but congratulations to all who increased their seat total and commiserations to all who didn't.

    What on earth?! So maybe the whole mass pm helping the left is untrue?
    Or things done in substitute, whether legal or otherwise, compensated, it would be nice to see a graph of the results again

    I'm astonished the Nat Libs will probably get a seat. Aph - you won that particular prediction.

    Perhaps - or it could just be this election. It's worth noting that in the last election the mass pm observably helped Labour a great deal - but not so much 'the left' in general.

    Indeed. Though we still have to factor out the ineligible votes first.

    Indeed. The mass pm actually cost the greens a seat last time.
    Well I look forward to seeing the real results if they are much different.

    I think it is essential that these things be informative.
