And the winner is..



Last week we asked you to vote in our fictitious Election poll, to decide who should be President.

We included one-term Jimmy Carter as the only living former president who could in theory have another term in office.

Jimmy was added as a protest vote.  A candidate you could vote for, when the alternatives were lacking.

We knew that some people would feel so strongly for Trump or Biden, that they would log Alt's to vote twice, but we seriously doubted anyone would feel so strongly to log an Alt to vote Carter.  

With this in mind, these are the results of the London City, Presidential Election.

136 votes were counted before the machine jammed.. of which:

Trump: 47  (35%)
Biden : 54  (39%)
Carter: 35  (26%)

So with 39% of the votes Biden wins our election, even if some people did use some skulduggery in their voting.

It also speaks volumes that so many voted to give Jimmy another chance. Presumably they thought that neither of the real candidates is up to it.

Thanks for taking part.  Another fun poll soon!
