Pollbludger: It’s that time of year again – the time when we all start to get interested in the political landscape and what might happen in the coming elections. While it can be fun to speculate on what could happen, it’s also important to keep in mind that elections are a complex process with many factors at play. In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the main things you need to know about elections and discuss how polling data can be used to make predictions.


The results of the United Kingdom General Election

Pollbludger  The United Kingdom General Election was held on Thursday, 8 June 2017. The Conservative Party, led by Theresa May, won 331 seats in the House of Commons, making them the largest party in Parliament. The Labour Party, led by Jeremy Corbyn, won 232 seats. This means that Corbyn is the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

This election was unusual in many ways. First, it was the first time that a Conservative Prime Minister had been re-elected since Margaret Thatcher in 1983. Second, it was the first time that a Labour Party Prime Minister had been re-elected since Tony Blair in 1997. Third, it was the first time that a majority of MPs had been elected with less than 50% of the vote (the Conservatives had 43%, Labour had 37%, and the Liberal Democrats had 5%). Fourth, it was the first time that an MP had been elected with more than 1 million votes (Nigel Farage for UKIP). Fifth, it was the first time that a party other than the Conservatives or Labour had won more than one million votes (UKIP). Sixth, it was the first time that a party other than the Conservatives or Labour had won more than 10% of the vote (UKIP). Seventh,

The U.S. Midterm Elections

The Poll Bludger \u2013 Analysis and discussion of elections and voting trends.

The 2018 U.S. midterm elections are now over, and the results are in. While the overall result is not surprising, there were a few interesting tidbits to take away from the race. Here’s a look at what we learned from America’s vote:

1) The Democrats continued to gain ground in the House of Representatives, picking up 24 seats – their largest midterm gains since 1994. This is likely due to the unpopularity of President Donald Trump and Republican policies, as well as anger over the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

2) The Republicans held onto their majority in the Senate, but this was by no means a sure thing. In fact, they were only able to win because they won more contested races than expected – many of which were in states that Hillary Clinton won in 2016. This suggests that while Trump and the Republicans may be popular in some parts of America, they may not be so popular overall.

3) As always, turnout was high – especially among young people (who are more likely to vote Democrat). This could indicate that even though Trump is unpopular

Analysis and discussion of the elections

Pollbludger  The polls were wrong. We all knew it. They always are, but this time it was worse. The exit pollsters got it so spectacularly wrong that the BBC even apologised for their role in the election results. It’s not the first time, of course, and it won’t be the last. But what does it all mean?

There have been a lot of theories put forward as to why the polls were so wrong this time around. Some say that there was too much hype surrounding Jeremy Corbyn and his Labour party; others say that social media had an impact on how people voted. But whatever the reason, one thing is for sure: we need to be careful about how much we rely on the polls in future elections.


In this article, we will be discussing the poll bludger – analysis and discussion of elections and polling. The poll bludger is a term used to describe the tendency for some political commentators and journalists to give undue weight to opinion polls in predicting electoral outcomes. We will also be looking at how recent events have led to increased scepticism about opinion polls, and how this could impact the way that future elections are predicted.


Q: What are the latest polls saying about who will win the US elections?

A: There is no one definitive poll that can tell you who will win the US elections, as polling is an inexact science. However, various surveys conducted over the past few months give us a good indication of who is likely to win. The most recent poll, from Fox News, showed that Hillary Clinton has a lead of five points over Donald Trump.
