Taken from this question:

Highest scoring answer that outscored an accepted answer with score of more than 10 by more than 2x

So the answer accepted was a score of -11. My answer was +11. This is more than 10, and more than 2x the answer accepted score's answer.

Why haven't I received the populist badge?

    -11 * 2 = -22, just saying.

You misread the requirements.

  • The accepted answer must have a score of at least then 10.
  • Your answer must have more than twice the score of the accepted answer.

Yeah. It's a gold badge for a reason. (See also: Reversal.)

  • Woops. Must have misread it. My bad.
