The PollyVote predictions have been rarely cited in the popular press. Possible reasons are that (1) people have difficulties to understand the benefits of combining, (2) people are not interested in combining because they prefer a forecast that suits their preferences or wrongly believe that they can identify the best forecast, and (3) people think that the method of calculating averages is too simple (Graefe et al. 2014b). Another possible reason is that the PollyVote predictions are very stable and rarely change, whereas election observers and journalists are interested in excitement and newsworthiness.
