The decline of the EDP in the European Elections 2014.

The decline of the EDP in the European Elections 2014.
There has been a total collapse of the EDP vote across England in the 2014 European elections, not only is its percentage of the vote down in all regions compared to 2009 but it is even lower than the first time the party stood, ten years ago, in 2004.

In the EDPs former heartland of the South East it has slumped to 0.76%, this is the second lowest percentage ever recorded by the EDP, in any Region, in any European Election, beaten only by the EDP result today in the capital city!

It is possible that the Uncles effect is still being felt in and around the South East!

East Midlands
2004….No candidates.
2009….2.3%.
2014….1.04%. down 1.28%.

East of England.
2004….1.8%.
2009….2.0%.
2014….1.05%. down 0.96%.

2009….1.4%.
2014….0.46%….down 0.94%.

Yorkshire and the Humber.
2004….1.5%.
2009….2.6%.
2014….1.02%. down 1.53%.

Total number of votes for the EDP over the past three elections;

2004….130,056 votes from 5 Regions. = 0.76%
2009….279,801 votes from 9 Regions. = 1.86%
2014….126,024 votes from 9 Regions. = 0.80%

The EDP gained more votes in 2004 standing in just 5 Regions than it has in 9 Regions in 2014!
