Summary/Abstract: After each election Polishmedia publish nationwide rankings of candidates, comparing the number of votes gained individually. Analysis of the individual results of such candidates, however, shows that they are strongly dependent on factors external to a candidate –the size ofparticular district, its territorial structure and the turnout. The results depend not only on the candidates’ previous media visibility, but also on the visibility of their competitors.
