July 1896. Blythenhale stands in ruins in the wake of Feducci’s explosive exit from office. Reports indicate that the former Mayor has continued to engage in duels in the smoldering ruins of Blythenhale over the protests of the Dauntless Temperance Campaigner. Sinning Jenny could not be reached for comment. The former Mayor’s office has issued a statement that "the Mayor has thoroughly and legally redesigned Blythenhale all year … this is merely his final touch to make it (purr)fect." For more on this story, you may find an anonymous letter from the palace denouncing the harm committed to the cats of Blythenhale on page 3. In other news, the J-
"I’m afraid we’re going to have to delay that story to next week’s paper. Chief editor’s orders."
"Why? In just a few days, this will be old news."
"It was old news from the moment it happened. Feducci destroyed Blythenhale. Everyone in London knows. Port Carnelian knows by now. We have a new story. Someone finally sat down and processed all the polling data we collected."
"But most of that’s a week old! There are already [/i]post[i]-election surveys floating around. We can’t possibly -"
"Huffam’s not released the full results yet, so we have a window of opportunity here. Besides, have you seen the Square of Lofty Words recently? It’s a bloodbath, and a dataless bloodbath. Just get this out there."[/i]
Before continuing to read this post, if you haven’t already, I highly recommend filling out the entirely unofficial and voluntary post-election survey by Hotshot Blackburn. It covers some of the same ground as this post and hopefully between this, that, and the official 1896 Election Statistics, we can get a clear picture as to this community’s view of the election compared to the full Fallen London playerbase’s.
This post will be outlining some of the not-immediately-visible results of the unofficial election survey conducted at the beginning of the second week. A few disclaimers:
[ul][li][b]This survey was publicized on this forum and in the Fallen London subreddit. It is not meant to be reflective of the entire Fallen London playerbase. All conclusions drawn only extend to this subsection of the population.
[/b][/li][li][b]A majority of the data was collected in the first two days of the second week. Over 80% of the data was collected in the first three days. The form remained open up to approximately three hours after the announcement of the winner. For this reason, data on career level and Notability will not be considered in this processing.
[/b][/li][li][b]Some samples are very small. They are included for completeness but little else.
[/b][/li][li][b]No data was collected on responses to Huffam’s fourth or fifth poll questions because they had not yet been asked at the creation of the form.
[/b][/li][li]If a response was marked as N/A, then it was removed from the data set. data processing with those has been left as an exercise for the reader.[/li][/ul]
The poll concluded with 330 responses.
