Polly has done it again: the advanced artificial intelligence from Advanced Symbolics Inc. accurately predicted the Democratic takeover of the House in the 2018 Midterm elections.

Despite many reports of a Blue Wave taking over the House, Polly was right in predicting a more modest Democratic win throughout the campaign. Polly predicted a seat range of 216 – 231 for the Democrats, with the best case scenario seeing them win 231 seats. With 225 seats officially won by the Democrats and the likely addition of four more once all the races have been finalized, the final results fall into Polly’s upper prediction range.

“Polly has done it again. Despite talk of a Blue Wave taking over the House, our proven AI successfully predicted the results of the Midterms, accurately forecasting a more modest win for the Democrats.”  Erin Kelly, CEO, Advanced Symbolics Inc.

Of course, accurately predicting election results is nothing new for Polly—Advanced Symbolic Inc.’s patented AI has a long track record of successfully predicting election results, accurately predicting the 2015 Canadian Federal election, the Brexit referendum, the 2016 American election, and the 2018 Ontario Provincial Election.

Polly’s projected seat range is the 95% confidence interval, i.e. projected to be the outcome 19 times out of 20.
