Populist × 713 : Answer outscored an accepted answer with score of more than 10 by more than 2x

I have an answer with a score of 12 that outscores an accepted answer by more than 2x (accepted answer is 3). But somehow I never got a populist badge. What am I not getting?

It's read "Answer outscored (an accepted answer with score of more than 10) by more than 2x". The other answer needs a score of more than 10 (i.e. at least 11), and you need to more than double it, so your answer will have a score of at least 11*2+1 = 23.

• Provide an answer that meets all of the following criteria:
• it is the highest scoring answer on the question
• it does not have the accepted checkmark
• it has a score of at least 23
• it has more than double the score of the accepted answer
• the accepted answer has a score of at least 11
