Can overseas vote oust Duda?

Here is what the exit poll is showing, though it doesnt include overseas vote.

The West us traditionally more liberal, whereas the east is more conservative. To some extent this reflects the historic partitions of Poland since the late 18th century, with eastern Poland more influenced by the conservative political climate in Tsarist Russia, while western Poland was more influenced by the European Enlightenment of Austria and Prussia.


Also in reversal of experience of voting patterns in countries like the US, women are voting for Duda while men are voting for Trzazkowski. But it's more complicated than Left-Right because Dudas Law and Justice (PIS) party is generous with welfare as well as being anti LGBT and Eurocritical, while Trzazkowskis Civic Democrat party is more moderate on social issues, more pro EU and a less statist on welfare.

When do they get around to actually counting? Fair play to the Warsaw Mayor for making a right contest of it at least. The initial candidate pulled out after their campaign was not getting traction.

Thank God Duda won. A real man and a True Patriot. We need that here in Ireland now and our success at the weekend means our ranks are swelling.

Sore losers. Cry babies will complain to their supporters in Brussels I suppose.
The Brussels box has just come in and hundreds of thousands of votes have changed the result!!

The growing influence of the Visegrad countries in the EU is the only hope for saving it.

There were shenanigans. Maybe not enough to swing it, but they happened

Russia didn't try to integrate Polish and effectively Poland under Russia was autonomy, while Austria and Prussia were integrating Polish into their empires
