Over the last few weeks, the TSR community have been letting us know in their thousands each week which political party they were planning on voting for this general election.

We complied the votes from all six polls with the help of our fab data analysts RK and jenhasdreams, and with a bit of design magic from CrazyKittenLady we have the final results!

As you can see, there was a clear steer towards Labour over the 6 weeks of campaigning, which was very similar to the final percentages of votes for political parties based on age (an average of 55% of 18-24 and 25-29's voted Labour compared to 51% of TSR users). The Conservatives vote percentage on TSR was slightly lower than the average 22% of younger people (18-25) who ended up voting for the Conservatives in 2019.

What do you think of the results? Is it what you were expecting compared to the actual results of the election?

Let us know who you actually voted for in the GE!

Not surprising... I don't recall a point in my life at which young people didn't overwhelmingly back left-leaning parties. I think these days it's even more likely, at least in part due to the relentless barrage of propaganda (most of which is misleading, usually deliberately so) that floods social media. Labour do social media better, and their supporters share a lot more in a far more emotional manner, and I would expect younger people are more exposed to that than older people... and when it's their friends spreading it, it's probably easier to believe.

But I imagine there'll have been plenty of younger folk who said they were voting Labour to their friends, then voted Conservative in the booth when they were safe from abuse/being ostracised.

Overall result surprised me a bit, expected a smaller majority or hung parliament.

I'm ultimately a statistics man at heart so given the numberous records Corbyn would have to break (he does not for example even have more councillors than the Tories) i was always confident of a Tory victory in terms of seats and votes but knew that 1950, 1974 and 2017 were indicators that elections close after the last could see a swing against the prior largest party so was wary of a minority. In the end though after adjusting my method of polling analysis (failed horribly in 2017) the Tories always maintained a hefty lead this time and as such i was generally confident of a modest majority although i did think there would be an element of votes piling up in existing seats which restrained my prediction. On election day i was going for 45-36-13 and in reality we got 44-33-12 so i was pretty pleased.

In short, only the margin was a pleasant surprise.

I voted Tories, glad they won it. Really didn't like Corbyn, sorry was not voting Labor at all.

at least now we don't have to have a coalition with the DUP.

I'm young and would have voted Tory, and am not a socialist or liberal (in the sense of the word you mean). My grandad also voted Tory and isn't a xenophobe or racist.

There are obviously going to be some young racist xenophobes, and some old liberal socialists. The world is not an either/or place.
Just because someone doesn't tell you they are a racist or xenophobe, doesn't mean they aren't one.

Yes... but they're easily recognised. They sit in bars with tattoos and their hair on upside down!

Mate, I'm a libertarian. I support people of *all races* having freedom - whether that's businessmen's freedom to work without red tape, women's freedom to get a job or people's freedom to smoke pot.

Libertarianism is the least racist ideology there is.
