A couple of percent
But also, is it a case of shy Tory or people changing their mind when they have that piece of paper in front of them?
I only decided as I walked in to the polling station.
You've got to give it to Cameron. Was marked as the leader who couldn't win an election, and then gave the Tories their first majority in 24 years. Still think he's a very weak Tory leader, but at least he's delayed Boris's inevitable rise for a few years.
This was actually a really interesting election, and the fact they have only just scraped a majority will be very intriguing in 5 years time
1. Tories hoovered up the Lib Dem seats, not Labour?
2. Previous Labour voters switched from Labour to Tory to remain part of the Union?
3. SNP demolish Labour in Scotland
4. UKIP, DUP, Green make small gains.
Where did all these Tory voters come out of? And why?
Disastrous for the UK
Yeah... he survived a slaughter on 2 fronts so he must be doing something right...

Burnham will stand, not sure he will win, sadly a Blairite like Cooper is much more likely.
Lib Dems only hope of not dying now is Farron imho, he's the only one of them who is close enough to their pre-2010 stance to have any chance of saving their bacon. he won't be the only contender though imo
UKIP I really don't care, Carswell is surely the favourite? without Farage they will go backwards very quickly as well, not into oblivion but they'll probably lose about half their vote share.
