The 2019 General Election is turning out to be a 650 seat bun fight like never before. Rules are being rewritten and expectations are soaring. And a dark, cold six week campaign is no walk in the park.
The team at WA Communications has analysed these seats against key criteria and have found some interesting characteristics coming through. We looked at the remain vs leave vote and recent results in national, local and EU elections; as well as assessing the new breed of high-profile independents and the factors potentially putting heartland seats in play.
What becomes apparent is that constituencies with seemingly little else in common share many traits. In fact it’s clear that it’s not just voters – seats have personalities too. We’ve identified our top seven constituency personalities and where in the country you find them.
So move over Workington Man and Worcester Woman. Let us introduce you to our cast of seven constituency characters.
