not the Minority
knows' and 'No-shows'
can't there be a party that gets 60% of the electorate's vote? We
all have different views but there are plenty of views shared in
common by at least 60% of people.
opinion polls you include the 'dont knows' - or the poll
is meaningless. So in analysing actual election results, you must
include the 'no-shows' - those who stay at home instead of
voting. They're just as important as the ones who turn out to vote.
So percentages must be based on the whole electorate, not just those
who vote. Non-voters are NOT lazy young people who can't be bothered
to get off the sofa - they're people who would LIKE to vote - if
only there was a party / candidate they could support! They in effect
DID vote - for 'none of the above'.
last year's snap election, called by Theresa May to 'improve' her
position, but which turned out a disaster for her, the Tories were
marginally the most popular party but with just 29% of the electorate's
votes. And Labour who came second, got 27% of the electorate. No
party gets even half the electorate's support - nowhere near! This
continues the trend for the last 40 years . Is it any surprise when
you look at how out of touch ALL of Parliament's MPs are, with ordinary
a new party for the centre
need a populist party . A popular party, a people's
party, to represent the majority who don't identify with the establishment
parties of 'right' and 'left'. With new populist policies from the
centre, A party for the centre ground, for the political MAINSTREAM.
THEIR POLICIES ARE SH*TE"
