2015 Alberta Election Results

This report is in progress and incomplete.

 The 2015 Alberta Election is a rare occurence where ideologically similar parties split the conservative popular vote almost exactly in half so the argument that either party split the others vote is weak since for most of these ridings it could have gone either way.  The incumbent PC's retained only 10 seats while the Wildrose Party walked away with 21 seats even though they had slightly less popular vote.  

The table below is set under the premise that WRP split the conservative vote but the exact same could be said for the PC's, its just not usually said the ruling majority party splits since they are the clear option for ideological voters.  The split could more clearly be blamed on the PCs because of the massive loss of public confidence which was the source of driving voters to their alternative.

The NDP also made large gains in this election and can be commended for being in the right place at the right time while conservative voters tried to move the political landscape further to the right which ultimately proved difficult, even in Alberta.
