2015 Philly Election and Increasing Third Party Potential

I wrote a lengthy analysis of the 2015 Philly election and the potential for third party candidates featuring maps, charts, and data analysis!

The results of 2015 Philadelphia General Election fit the trend of the decline of the municipal Republicans and the increasing hegemony of the Democrats. If the trend continues, independents or third party candidates will soon be in competitive races against the Republicans for the two minority party at-large city council positions. I mapped the results for the four at-large independent candidates and created models that partially explain how their support varied by ward.
