    At the moment, the Libertarians are up two, UKIP are up one and the Lib Dems have lost 3 seats. The rest of the parties have stayed the same.

    At least until the PM votes are included. :holmes:
    If that's true for UKIP, I am very happy. We have that third seat and have started to make gains. Roll on coalition negotiations.

    Forgive me if I'm being really stupid, but why do the lib dems get 4 seats with 9.3 percent of the vote, whilst the Conservatives get 14 seats with 26.4 percent of the vote. Surely the lib dems should have 5 (9.3/2 equals 4.65) and the conservatives should have 13 (26.4/2 equals 13.2)?
    Am I just being stupid?

    Easily edited with the final result.

    I doubt much will change though.

    I guess that's all the PM votes in. The new allocation is as follows:

    • Labour (28.1%): 14
    • Conservatives (26.6%): 14
    • Libertarian (11.7%): 6
    • Socialist (10.8%): 5
    • Lib Dem (9.2%): 4
    • Centre (7.7%): 4
    • UKIP (5.9%): 3

    A very good turnout despite the poor result from the Lib Dems. Onwards and upwards for the party.

    The poll is actually very interesting. Prior to May 2010 I guess Liberal Democrats would have had a larger portion of the votes and would expect the Torries to have far fewer than they do. I wonder if this is a true reflection of the attitudes of 18-24 year old's.
