How come Russia likes America more than Democrats? Based on this, they seem to like Democrats very much since they've been dancing to Putin's music for the last year Facebook, Twitter: Russian actors sought to undermine Trump after election Top lawyers from Facebook and Twitter said Tuesday that Russian-linked posts and advertisements placed on the social networks after Election Day sought to sow doubt about President Donald Trump's victory. Facebook general counsel Colin Stretch told a Senate Judiciary panel that content generated by a Russian troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency after Nov. 8 centered on “fomenting discord about the validity of [Trump’s] election.”

Will Theresa May do anything to ensure that the horror in Manchester never happens again, or just give boring predictable speeches about it? seems you have your wish and she is now deploying the army. what effect will this have on the general election result ,and it has now become a general election issue with the question she is sending out to people but not actually asking it, who do you trust to keep the UK safe me or corbyn?. she is using the blood of our children to get elected as prime minister and is a vile woman indeed. this scum bag bombing Manchester has most likely given her the general election victory she wants and before this bombing she was on the ropes taking homes off pensioners and her manifesto was in tatters to say Islamic state are our enemy they might have given May her general election victory. is it luck I doubt it?
Which celebrity will win in bennelong tonight? Alexander has retained the seat. The swing against him was only 4.5%, which was not as much as the ALP said it would be. Considering there is always a swing against the sitting member in a by-election, I think it wasn't a bad result for the Libs.
Why was the swing in Scotland to Labour against the Tories? The Tory vote was up by 0.9% and the Labour vote was up up 2.5%. The Lib lost ground by 3.7%. The swing from the SNP to Labour was 0.1%, however the SNP vote was by 2.3%. The Scottish seats haven't changed hands at all, that is fact. But, that of course that being said, the Tory vote in Scotland has gone up, from 15.8% (369,388) in 2005 to 16.7% (412,855) in 2010. Part of the seat count is down to the current voting system of First Past The Post (FPTP) in the UK Election. Looking at the 2007 Scottish Parliament Vote (where the AMS system is used). for instance, the Tory vote was at 16.6% (0.1 % point below that of their 2010 vote) at 334,743 votes, with the List vote at 13.9% (284,005 votes) which gave the Tories 17 seats total out of 129 seats - far more representative of their vote count. Worth also noting that the Tory % of vote in Scotland was only a few % points behind the Lib Dems and SNP, in the 2010 General Election. Doing the maths, if a truly representative voting system was used, the Tories in Scotland should have got around 10 seats of Scotland's 59 - in the 2010 UK General Election. Also worth a look: http://"Why Didn't Scots Vote Tory" on BBC One Scotland yesterday (9th of May).
When is the next election that can & will change the Republican Majority in Congress to a Democratic Majority in Congress? November, 2018. All 435 seats will be up for election, so a swing of about 5% of the total vote will cause a change in majority. More, 33 of the 100 senate seats will also be at stake.....(plus a couple may be up for special election)

One Facebook ‘like’ is all it takes to target adverts, academics find Online ad campaigns based on smallest expressions of preference reveal effect of ‘mass psychological persuasion’ Online ad campaigns created by academics in Britain and the US have targeted millions of people based on psychological traits perceived from a single “like” on Facebook – demonstrating, they say, the effect of “mass psychological persuasion”. More than 3.5 million people, mostly women in the UK aged 18-40, were shown online adverts tailored to their personality type after researchers found that specific Facebook likes r

Russians 'bought Facebook adverts' targeting Black Lives Matter At least one of the targeted Facebook adverts bought by Russians during the 2016 presidential election campaign attacked the Black Lives Matter movement and specifically targeted areas where riots had taken place. Earlier this month Facebook admitted it probably had sold $100,000 (£74,000) worth of adverts to fake accounts operated from Russia. A post written by the social media giant’s chief security officer Alex Stamos said the adverts were mostly focused on promoting disunity rather than attacking or promoting any particular candidates an
General : Set Up RCI On Memali After General Election - Musa Hitam KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 23 (Bernama) -- Former Deputy Prime Minister Tun Musa Hitam said today a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) on the Memali incident should be set up only after the 14th General Election to avoid it being misused for political interests and to fish for votes.
Election Crisis: Mary Lou McDonald will lead Sinn Féin in general election, says Doherty Sinn Féin’s deputy leader Mary Lou McDonald will lead the party into the general election should it happen, her colleague Pearse Doherty has said.

Speaking to the media at Leinster House, Mr Doherty said Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald’s position was now untenable and she “needs to go” if the election is to be avoided. “It is very clear that

Did the candidacy of Ross Perot swing the 1992 presidential election? Reading the Wikipedia article on the 1992 presidential candidacy of Ross Perot, one would get the impression that it made no difference to the outcome of the election. However, after looking at the numbers myself, I thought it was pretty clear that if Perot had not been in the election, Bush would have probably won Colorado, Ohio, Tennessee, Washington, Wisconsin, Nevada, New Hampshire, Iowa, Georgia and New Jersey. This would have been 105 electoral votes, enough to give Bush a narrow victory. Pennsylvania would have become close, as well. Was there any attempt to carefully poll Perot voters in those states to determine if Bush actually would have won those states, such as New Jersey? For example, to take New Jersey as the pivotal example, Clinton won by 80,000 votes and Perot won 520,000 votes in New Jersey. Therefore, if the Perot voters had split 310 to 210 for Bush in New Jersey, then Bush would have won New Jersey. Has a poll been done to determine this? UPDATE Some commenters seem to have the idea that Perot was mostly supported by Democratic voters. This seems to be some kind of modern revisionism. I well remember the 1992 election and Perot was getting most of his support from conservative voters. Here is a Field poll from 1993 that backs this up for those who are not old enough to remember: As you can see Republican voters dominate Democratic voters in his support base, in some cases by a 2-to-1 ratio. I don't really consider it arguable that Perot candidacy hurt Bush. The question is whether it was enough to have turned the election or not. To answer that question I think we really need poll data from specific states such as New Jersey.

What happens if on an U.S. presidental election, in one of the states, the election fails? I am thinking on some highly extraordinary thing. For example: a new computer virus irrecoverably deletes the votes before counting them a sudden natural disaster makes a decisive part of the population simply incapable to vote some group starts to riot and makes the election fail Thus, the election happens everywhere, except in state X, which is - not on its own fault - incapable to provide the electors.

Why did the liberal party win the 1906 general election? From the years 1846-1886 the Liberal Party had dominated British politics winning all but one general election. There was a swift reversal in roles when Gladstone attempted to pass the first home rule bill in 1885. This alienated a minority of Liberals (93), some conservative Whigs led by Lord Hartington and some radical Liberal led by Joseph Chamberlain. These groups broke off from the Liberal Party to form the Liberal Unionists. This split badly affected the Liberals as much funding was lost and the 78 Liberal Unionists elected in 1886 acted as a constant reminder to the public. This subsequ
