    The overall results from the last election were not a convincing result, most seats were won by a few hundred votes. A lot of shyte has happened since then. I sure hope that secret report doesn’t prove to be correct in its evalutation of voting on emotion versus voting on facts. Let’s see how smart we are to connect the dots this time around. Let’s see who loves Jerry Springer shyte more than sticking to the facts of which party can address the country’s poor state of affairs

    Based on the candidates across from each other and how Bermuda has historically voted, Here’s my prediction for the election

    PLP take 1 close race, 2,3,5,7,13,14,15,16,17,18,21 close one,24,26,27 close,29,30,32,33,34,35 & 36 = 22 seats

    OBA take 4,9,10 close one,11,12,19,20,22,23 & 31 = 10 seats

    Too close to call are 6,8,25 & 28 = 4 seats

    Even if the OBA pick up the remaining unappointed seats they still won’t have enough to be the Government. I believe they have a mammoth task ahead of them in this election but the numbers just don’t favor them.

    • OBA should take 1,4,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,19,20,21,22,23,25,27,28,30= 19

      PLP should take 2,3,5,14,15,16,17,18,24,26,29,32,33,34,35,36 = 16

      Toss up- C31

  10. Law abiding citizen says:


  11. Serious Though says:

    19 OBA 17 PLP

  12. LMAO says:

    PLP will win.

  13. Don’t know if my last comments went through but I say

    2 Independent

    5 Safe seats O.B.A

    18 safe seats P.L.P

    11 To close to call

    The swing voter and those that abstain will be the deciding factor and so that makes this election to close to call.

  14. mmmmm says:

    if PLP gets back in again im saying to hell with it. I’m going to leave my home and try to find a job in another country where hopefully i can live comfortably. Too much shyte with this ridiculous PLP government and for too long have i gone without steady work to meet my needs. It’s quite sad and unfortunate. I love Bermuda, but with the way this country is being operated and how little work there is and how much dept we are it, things are dyer. PLP getting reelected is only going to drive this country deeper into a pit which we are already far in!

    • Fooled once, never twice says:

      Okay Bob!!! You said the same thing last time. But my question would be “where r u gonna move to?” Appears the US economy isnt doing too well and have the fiscal cliff still looming and the UK isn’t doing too well either in terms of economy and unemployment. Jus saying.

  15. DFrancis says:

    The influx of new blood into the election equation should shake things up abit. Bermuda does indeed need the shakeup. The veterans on both sides of the camp kinda tarnish the momentum. We have to do our part Bermuda. We need to vote for the best people to run the country, not the personality, but the most qualified to lead by example, wisdom and substance. Most candidates lack these qualities. So it should be easy to choose.

  16. Observer says:

    By looking at the candidates and following election history and the normal voter trends. I predict this election going to the PLP by at least 21 or 22 seats

  17. Election numbers says:

    PLP: 1-3-4-5-7-10-13-14-15-16-17-18-21-24-26-27-29-32-33-34-35-36 (22 votes)
    OBA: 9-11-12-20-22-23(6 vote)
    IND: 2

    UNDECIDED: 6-8-19-25-28-30-31 (Votes go any direction)

    Elections are all about numbers even if they get the other votes they will not win.
