2,000 quizzes completed

By CHRIS HAYCOCK, CO-FOUNDER

Well, we've been live for just seven days, and more than 2,000 people have already used our quiz to find out who they should vote for at the election.

Some interesting statistics are already beginning to form. So far, Labour have had the most matched policies, and are in the lead at 22.6%, just a tad more than the second-placed party - the Greens at 22.3%. The Tories are a just a few points behind them at 19.5%.

As for the hottest topics chosen for the quiz, health comes out on top. No surprises there, given that the NHS is one of the most widely covered issues in the newspapers. Interestingly, the economy is the second most chosen topic, which up until today came third, just behind immigration, which seems to have settled down a little. Expect immigration to peak again at some point.

Policy Comparison Chart

By CHRIS HAYCOCK, CO-FOUNDER

In an attempt to provide transparency behind our quiz questions, as well as provide a really useful tool for voters, we've created a new section on the site which allows you to compare the stances of all ten Westminster parties alongside each other on some 'hot topics' of interest.

Whilst there are several parties that have yet to publish their party manifestos, we've been able to collect a lot of information about where each party stands on particular issues. Whilst many other websites offer a similar service (including the BBC Manifesto Watch), presenting it in an easy-to-digest format was crucial to us. Comparing each party on, let's say, whether ASBO's should be scrapped, is now much easier with our tool that puts them alongside each other with a simple tick or cross to show you whether that party agrees or disagrees with the statement.

Check out the policy comparison tool to give you an instant overview of the party stances for all main areas, including hot topics such as immigration, NHS, benefits, and topics that are a little 'cooler', such as housing, world affairs, business etc.

We use a similar tool to edit the questions/answers algorithm for our political quiz, so we thought what better than to share it with our users? Enjoy.

Nationwide results for our quiz

By CHRIS HAYCOCK, CO-FOUNDER

Today we managed to get our nationwide results published in a more graphical format to allow you to see the results of our quiz.

There are several graphs that allow you to see how well matched each party is to the voters who are taking our political quiz, find out what the gender split is, and which topics are the most commonly chosen for the quiz.

I'm sure there will be lots of interesting statistics that come from the results page over the course of the run up to the general election, and we hope that they're so interesting that we see them in national newspapers in the coming weeks.
