Why use solely geography as the arbitrary divisor?

Just as valid (or invalid) would be to divide 'constituencies' based on voters' ages, as one example. This would have the advantage of levelling...

Vote shares in mid-term polls are even more irrelevant than the vote share on the day. All these daily/weekly polls are nothing more than a gimmick -- they tell us precisely nothing.

A party requires one more vote than its closest opposition, in each of 326 seats. That is all that is required to win the General Election.
