Irish Polling Report

A place to discuss Irish opinion polls

Place your bets …..

Folks,

As promised, I’m running a second prediction competition, for entries made in the last week of the campaign.

Competitors will give their best estimate of the seats (and percentage vote share) in each constituency. The winner will be the entrant who is least out in terms of total seats for each party (e.g. if 2 too many for FF and 2 too few for FG, you are 4 out). If there is a tie, it will go to whoever was least out in percentage shares of the vote in each constituency. The winner will not gain any great riches for him/herself, but a small (€10) donation to a charity chosen by them, really just something to make it interesting.

Entries should be entered into the spreadsheet downloadable at this address (you may be asked to wait 20 seconds before downloading), and when you complete this, please save it and send to irishpollingreport@gmail.com . Needless to say, I’ll not use your details for anything other than the competition.

NB Just to point out that Limerick East and West have been replace by Limerick City (4 seats) and Limerick County (3 seats) with a chunk going in with Kerry North – the spreadsheet uses the old names in case there is any confusion on this.

If you have any problems downloading the spreadsheet (or making it work) drop me a mail and I’ll do my best to sort it out.

  1. Oh man – having to do the percentage share in EVERY constituency, does make it a more laborious task. Can we enter with just the constituency predictions? And how come the prize is assessed on the total overall score? I could be wrong on every constituency but, if my errors balance out, still win!! How about we all start off with 100 points and you deduct one for every individual prediction we get wrong.

    • Sorry! You can post what you think it’ll be, but the competition is as is…

  2. […] a reminder of the prediction competition – the prize is only a small donation to the charity of your choice, but bragging rights will […]
