The Irish Election Stats model brings together opinion polls and constituency data to produce forecasts for the 2016 General Election. On this site you will find data on all candidates across all 40 constituencies. The site was developed by political analyst David Higgins.

Party seats


Note that seat projections are a sum of probabilities. The situation for each party is much more wide ranging than a single seat figure. See the party section to explore each party in greater detail. Fluctuation in these numbers is due not only to changing opinion poll data, but to the incorporation of new candidates as they announced up to the close of nominations. Methodology changes to the model have also been taking place up to the close of nominations.

Breakdown of minor parties

Note that prior to 2016, outgoing TDs Clare Daly, Joan Collins and Seamus Healy were classified under “AAAPBP”, which was then a category called “United Left”. Projections in 2016 include these TDs as independents.

Coalition seats

Note that this site doesn’t breakdown coalition options further than two party combinations among the big four. There are countless permutations and combinations available among the broad “independents and others” group.

Female seats

Note: 25 women were elected in 2011.
