This morning, I was surprised by the results of the election in the Netherlands. Two facts were particularly striking to me.
- The Social Democracts (PVdA) fell from 24.8% in 2012 to 5.7% vote share.
- The largest party (Liberals, VVD) won only 21.3% vote share.
I conducted a ParlGov analysis in R to get broader understanding about these patterns.
