Polling[edit]

Please do not delete polls simply because you don't like them, as you did on Statewide opinion polling for the Republican Party presidential primaries, 2016. Thank you. Tiller54 (talk) 12:31, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Suggestion re Minneapolis_mayoral_election,_2013#Results[edit]

A suggestion if I may: One of us needs to split the results table at Minneapolis_mayoral_election,_2013#Results. I suggest rounds 1 to 13, then 14 to 27-ish or so, and so on, so that the table(s) will fit on a landscape-oriented piece of 8.5x11 inch paper. I've already posted a similar suggestion to User:LightSoup.

Disambiguation link notification for March 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited United States House of Representatives elections in New York, 2012, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Chris Collins (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

UK Local Elections[edit]

Hi mate, before anything else is changed, the swing vote is not and actual swing percent. It is based off of an estimation by the BBC. Therefore it cannot possibly be a swing. For example the Conservatives did horrendously bad but they have a "swing" of plus four. I think a new section should be made with your findings, under say "Polling" or "Predicted Share" just not in the factual part of the page. Looking forward to your response. HughTubex (talk) 09:19, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

We already use the BBC's "National Projected Vote" (NPV) for swings across all local elections, with the swing being every year as opposed to every four years. You can go right back to the 2005 local elections to see that every page has a swing comparing it with the previous year so that for example 2010 is compared with 2009, not 2006, 2011 is compared with 2010 not with 2007, 2012 is compared with 2011, not with 2008 and 2013 is compared with 2012, not with 2008. In my view, since the BBC extrapolates the results to take into account that some counties aren't voting in these local, while some areas such as London are obviously all voting, the NPV compared to last year is the correct, accurate way that swing should be shown. The NPV that the BBC calculates, is not done by simply adding up all the votes for UKIP, Con, LibDem and Lab and then working out a percentage, its so much more complicated than that, meaning that even if you did want to change the way wikipedia shows the swing to the elections happening four years ago then you would have to change the percentages because if you looked at the actual votes, I'm sure Labour won very much more than 31%, as most of the areas voting this year, London and the Metropolitan Boroughs, are heavily Labour, the vote percentage that we have reported, is if these elections had happened across the country.

The reason, that for example UKIP can be seen as doing very well (winning council seats) but also down on the vote share is simple, compared to 2013, UKIP did slightly worse, in that it get a slightly smaller share of the vote, however compared to 2010, it did a million times better as it got virtually nothing when these seats were last up. The Conservatives, they've recovered ever so slightly from 2013 when both the main parties got historic lows of under 30% each, but that four point recovery still puts them down on 2010 causing them to lose council seats. The Liberal Democrats, haven't really done that much worse now than last year, hence there vote share is down only by one point, however as these seats were last up in 2010, they lost a lot of councillors. Hope that explains it :) Guyb123321 (talk) 11:10, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Re: Undone Edit[edit]

No, you're wrong. You edited at 10:37BST when the votes were still being counted in Western Isles as BBC News webpage made clear. What they were showing was no more than a projection. That's why it was premature. At the time I undid your edit (11:25 BST) it was still not complete. Emeraude (talk) 13:53, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
