  1. The polls in Ireland actually show a wide Yes lead.

  2. South Australia held an election on March 15th, 2014. The Liberal party won the popular vote but Labour won one more seat and retained a minority government with the help of an independent M.L.A..

  3. Queensland does not have the "Coalition" the Liberal party and National party merged in 2008 to form the Liberal National Party.
