1.7 What about the name “PollyVote”?

The first part of the name “PollyVote” refers to our mascot Polly the parrot. In addition, it is derived from the words “poly” – for the many forecasts that we use in the combination and – “political” – for the context of the forecast.

The name’s second part reflects the fact that our forecasts focus on vote shares rather than winning probabilities, which we believe are more honest as the accuracy of the latter is different to evaluate for one-off events such as major elections.
