Thank you star'd and flagged...
according to this I have a voting power of 0.071
Though I have to say that through all the polls and statistics there is the election day itself.
No one knows how the wind truly blows.
All the polls are take from roughly 1000 people that's 1/60000ths of the population. So opinion polls are useless...
Similarly the website you pointed to, does not take into account other factors... My constituency for example is historically a labour safe seat
but..... We have our MP currently in court facing jail because he was caught with his fingers in the till....
So large swings do happen, and even though an individual voter has less power... this power is amplified as a large percentile of voters change their
All the best,
