UK Elections 2015: Trending Figures

Polls say it will be Britain’s most unpredictable election in a generation, with a neck-to-neck competition between Prime Minister David Cameron of the Conservative Party and opposition Labour Party leader Ed Miliband. It says no party will gain the upper hand, and it will probably be ending up with a hung Parliament.

There are 650 seats, and the current poll shows a swing of about 3% or 3.5% from Conservative to Labour. The two contesting parties of the UK general elections are the Conservative Party and theLabour Party, but small parties will also have prominent roles as current poll record shows.

If somehow the current Prime Minister of Britain David Cameron fails to win majority seats, then Britain will be going for its second coalition government since World War II. According to surveys, polling began at 7 a.m. local time, Thursday, and 45 million registered voters are most likely to change their minds.

NBC mentions that a YouGov poll on Wednesday says Conservatives and the Labour Party will have a tight fight, while a ComRes poll for the Daily Mail says Conservatives will lead with 35 percent against Labour’s 32 percent. For both predictions, smaller parties will balance the power.

The final poll result showed no party will hold majority seats, and the results will end up showing messy results. Voters are divided.

“Based on the latest polls, there is a high probability that no single party is going to have a straightforward majority in the House of Commons after the election,” said Nick Vivyan, political scientist at Durham University.

“All the existing political parties are finding it very difficult to convince the electorate that they are telling the truth,” according to John Bartle, professor of government at the University of Essex.
