POLITICAL parties hoping to swipe seats from their rivals in today’s general election have been concentrating their efforts on marginal constituencies across the country. People living in these areas have probably seen many campaigners during the final run-up to the pivotal vote. Here are the one’s you should be watching as the results come in… What is a […] 08-06-17

Why does Scotland vote Labour so much? Looking at the votes cast in Scotland, we can see: Labour: 1,035,528 votes, 42 seats, with a vote swing of +2.5 Liberal Democrat: 465,471 votes, 11 seats,with a vote swing of -3.7 Scottish National: 491,386 votes, 6 seats, with a vote swing of +2.3 Conservative: 412,855 votes, 1 seat, with a vote swing of +0.9 Labour was clearly the largest party of popular vote and seats, but due to the First Past The Post system it saw the Labour Party in Scotland gaining almost double the seats under this system. If the voting system was truly fair and representative in reference to votes cast, the Labour Party would have gained 24 seats, the Liberal Democrats would have gained around 11 seats, the SNP 12, and the Tories 10 with perhaps the Greens and UKIP picking up one seat a piece. So, the Tory vote in fact went up in Scotland from 2005, by almost one % point, from 369,388 votes in 2005 to 412,855 votes in 2010. If you look at the map of the UK as a whole, in seats, Scotland, the North of England, the London area, Wales (and to a lesser extent the West Midlands) all were Labour strong-holds. I also hear a rumour, that if the North of England didn't vote in the UK Election, the Tories would have had huge majority. Also worth a look: http://"Why Didn't Scots Vote Tory" on BBC One Scotland yesterday (9th of May).
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).
should scotland now be really pushing for its total independence? No. The SNP aren't doing this right now because they know what the numbers add up to - they are a MINORITY administration (less total seats than the combined opposition), a minority of votes - more people voted for the pro-union parties combined than for them. Remember 2 more things 1. Being elected means being destined to lose popularity. The SNP are no different. 2. The SNP did very well on the regional list top-up seats, but on the constituencies, which are used in Holyrood AND Westminster (ONLY these seats count for Westminster) Labour win by a country mile in Scotland, so come the UK general election, there will be no Scottish majority for independence.
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)
How dangerous are demlibs going to get when we vote even more of them out than we did last elections, we voted out over 1200 of them? Democrats gained seats in the 2016 election and swept the field in the 2017 election. In 2018 they're likely to do well agaim, based on their performance in 2017, the trend of the opposition party winning seats in the mod tern elections, and Trumps historically low approval ratings.
Will you vote at the next election? The next election for me will be the Scottish Independence Referendum. I will be voting, but I'm not telling you how - heh heh. Next General Election - No, but not for for any big reason. It's just that I have never lived in a place where my vote would make any difference. I lived in a safe Labour seat in the Thatcher / Blair era. Making Frank Dobson's majority 20,001 instead of 20,000 wasn't going to change history was it ? Now I live in the only Tory (safe) seat in Scotland, a country where just over 400,000 votes give the Tories 1 Westminster seat, and just over a million give labour 41 seats. (Grrrr. Bah humbug and various other grumpy old man noises.) EDIT : if there's a UKIP candidate here I will vote.

The 2017 New Zealand general election will always belong to Jacinda Ardern Beyond the question of who forms the next government, New Zealanders will look back on this election campaign as a turning point Six weeks ago, New Zealand’s election campaign was limping toward a foregone conclusion. The centre-right National party looked a shoo-in for a fourth term (matching the legendary 1960-72 administration of Keith Holyoake ), and prime minister Bill English was on track to find redemption (he was party leader when National suffered its worst-ever election defeat in 2002).

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.
