Balance 14.80%
Summary 100.00%      

Please Note: The poll has an undisclosed balance of 14.8% if this balance is infact allocated to minor Parties then the NVB and OBNY Bloc's would not achieve the minimum 3% requirement, in which case their allocated 29 seats would be redistributed and the extent of wasted vote would exceed 20%. Ideally the poll should publish more information as to the outstanding balance and if the nominated percentage is the percentage of voters who will be casting a valid vote or it is a percentage of those polled.

Additional information that would assist in the analysis of the vote would be a copy of the questions asked and geopoltical statisical data (ie a breaks down of the number of respondents from each oblast)Without this information each poll is like comparing apples with oranges. With the quailty of each orchard grove varing significantly in output.
