Transfers in Dromore

The Dromore results have been out for a while, but now that the dust has settled a bit, there are some points from the transfers.1) The UUP picked up more transfers than the other Unionists at every stage, and more than anyone after the first round.

2) Following the trend from the Assembly election in Lagan Valley, a lot of SDLP transfers went to the Alliance and not SF.

3) The total number of non transferable votes when SF dropped out was 64 higher than their first preference total.

What is clear is that the SDLP vote in Lagan Valley is going soft. The part that isn’t though, is still as ‘hard’ nationalist as it ever was.
