UK election exit polls

December 13, 2019

UPDATE: Conservatives 365, Labour 203. Details from The Guardian.


Exit polls estimate PM Boris Johnson and the Tories re-elected with a fat majority, and Labour decimated. Real results tomorrow probably.

Not good at all, I liked Jeremy Corbyn and what he stood for. Unfortunately, his party was split on Brexit, and there is no reward for refusing to pick a side. (And certain punishment for picking.)

This was also a vivid example of how a first-past-the-post electoral system can take a bad situation and make it worse. (LD getting 3.6 million votes but only 11 seats, essentially none relative to their votes).
