Why Opinion Pollsters Got UK Election 2015 Badly Wrong / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Barely a week ago the people of Britain were going to the polls in what was unanimously proclaimed by the mainstream media as a too close to call general election, one where the Labour and Conservative parties were virtually neck and neck and where even if the Conservatives managed to pull a a handful of seats ahead would still lose be default as they would not be able to form a majority even with Lib Dem support and therefore the Labour party appeared to be destined to win the 2015 general election, all of which was based on a year of opinion polls that consistently presented this consensus view right up to the polls closed at 10pm.

Deconstruction of UK General Election 2015 Result - Why Opinion Pollsters Got it Wrong / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

This time last week the people of Britain were going to the polls in what was unanimously proclaimed by the mainstream media as a too close to call general election, one where the Labour and Conservative parties were virtually neck and neck and where even if the Conservatives managed to pull a a handful of seats ahead would still lose be default as they would not be able to form a majority even with Lib Dem support and therefore the Labour party appeared to be destined to win the 2015 general election, all of which was based on a year of opinion polls that consistently presented this consensus view right up to the polls closed at 10pm. Instead, the reality proved to be the exact opposite as instead of the Ed Milliband walking into No 10 we had David Cameron texting the removal vans to do an about turn as he raced back to Downing Street before the locks were changed.

UK House Prices Forecast Conservative Election Win 2015 - Video / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Whilst the opinion pollsters, academics, pseudo-analysts (journalists) and book makers ALL got the 2015 UK general election badly wrong right upto the close of the polls, who collectively forecast that the only workable outcome would be one of a minority Labour government supported by the SNP. Instead the actual result surprised all by delivering an outright majority Conservative government that not even the exit poll forecast and which only became apparent after about 600 of the 650 results were declared.

Why Labour Lost Election 2015, Who will be Next New Labour Leader? / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Labour suffered its worst defeat in over 30 years, putting the party back to where it stood under the disastrous leadership of Michael Foot, and even worse when considering the blood bath in Scotland where the Labour party was born, which saw the Scottish Nationalists take every Labour seat bar 1. The election result has shocked about half the electorate whilst surprising the rest as what amounted to daily worthless opinion polls had led the nation to believe that this was a neck and neck election race, one in which where even if Labour had won far fewer seats than the Conservatives then Labour were still likely to go on and form next government as illustrated below:

England's Voters Tell SNP Scottish National Socialists to STFU - UK Election Result Analysis / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

For over a year the people of Britain have had Scottish nationalism, one of me, me, me, want, want, want, demand, demand, demand rammed down their throats, and seeing the Scottish Nationalists set to wipe out Labour in Scotland and also heavily promoting backing for a weak Milliband government in Westminister, that would be dancing to Alex Salmond's SNP tune at huge further detriment to England's hard working tax payers who already are forced to pick up the bill for a huge disparity in public spending per capita of over £2,000 per person per year. Said through the ballot box that enough is enough and VOTED NO to what would have amounted to an SNP dictatorship by voting for an Anti- Scottish National Socialism government into power in Westminister so as to completely neutralise the Labour bloodbath in Scotland, as Labour socialism would have been bad enough never mind Scottish National Socialism!
