I was dreaming of developing a political forecasting model as previously I had a dissertation where I was trying to map AI prediction to the probability to win an election. Therefore a simple model based on probability: p(W) = [0..0] where there are 13 districts for which there is a probability of winning around 10% of votes to win a seat in the House of Representatives. p(L) = [0.1.. 0.1] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Districts_of_Malta political forecasting Which variables would you map on x and y graphs? x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 y1 y2 y3 y4 y5

What is the relationship between x and y? How does the reputation impact the longterm visibility (i.e., x1 and y1).
