New YouGov projection – HUNG PARLIAMENT

May 30, 2017

Without wishing to get too excited too quickly, I thought I should leave this here. The polling company, YouGov, are actually predicting that the Conservative Party will fall sixteen seats short of an overall majority in the House of Commons! You read that right, everyone, the latest projection is a Hung Parliament. From a twenty-plus-point lead for the Tories about five weeks ago, to a Hung Parliament!


We need to recognise that a lot can happen in the eight-and-a-bit days before the General Election, that it is only one poll, and that there are substantial uncertainties surrounding the data. But if this projection proves anywhere near correct, then the fightback by the Labour Party has been unprecedented, and this Election is shaping up to be one of the biggest electoral turnarounds of all time.

    Reblogged this on The Greater Fool and commented:
    While it’s clear that the needle is moving positively, YouGov predicted a hung parliament last time out. People often change their minds on Election day so it’s important the you vote, get friends and family out to vote and put a positive case for Labour to them to get the Tories out.
