Supprised at how much the vote is changing in such short spaces of time, greens were on 30% about an hour ago.

Wft I wonder whether this is a good thing.

I don't think I'd mind a green coalition but I'd hate a green majority. I wonder why their so popular with students.

Then again how many students will actually bother voting.

Students are predicted to be one of the major factors in the election this year after a huge turn out at the Scottish Referendum. TSR is going to be throwing everything it's got to encourage students to vote this year too - we're in talks with every major political party for their support

I'll believe that when I see it. Youth have historically been less likely to bother voting.

Atm, only Labour, Tories, UKIP and Lib Dems are standing in my area, so I can only vote for one of them. I would choose Liberal out of the 4, but they're not realistically going to win so I'll have to go for Labour. My area is dominated by a Conservative and there's absolutely no chance he won't win though.

I like the idea of a poll on the side of the forum btw. But I don't think you should be able too change your vote and I do think it should link to the topic about the poll.

Mine on the other hand is a labour stronghold. We haven't had anyone but labour in the last 100 years.

It's was true, greens were that high. But it was very soon after the voting started and so no statistically valid as there were hardly any votes.

I saw labour at 100%!

I wonder whether we can find out how many have voted. Without knowing that the poll is pretty useless.

Historically. It grew at the last election, it will grow again this year.

Maybe one day

It was in the small hundreds when I left the office today, so growing nicely.

I'd love to start splitting out the regional data too, but need to wait until there are enough votes in all regions for that to make sense. But I do wonder if there are massive differences in student/young people's voting intentions across the country.

Also wonder what the SNP support is in Scotland. Looking like it'll be pretty high, given there results nationally the last time I looked, but will only be able to tell when we get the regional results split out

I voted Liberal Democrat. Shock, horror.

I live in a very safe Tory seat. My political views are closest to the Greens and the SNP, but it's unlikely that I'll have the option to vote Green (I'll be in the 10% of seats that the Greens aren't standing in, no doubt), and I'm not Scottish so I can't vote for the SNP. I'm not actually sure if Labour are standing here - the original candidate isn't listed on their website as he got in to a spot of bother. I don't support Nick Clegg, however I can sympathise with many Lib Dem policies, and they came second in this constituency in 2010. It's unlikely that my MP will lose, but right now it looks like my first vote shall be a tactical one. Bit of a shame.

Lib dems have A 2% chance here. I'm voting for them purely to help keep their deposit,

Lib dems have a chance of gains on Oxford west, Montgomery and possibly Maidstone

Just to let you know there seems to be an issue... The %age only seems to be 98% I've seen it as 99 & 101 too and where I understand that they may be rounding (although if done correctly shouldn't be so) 98 is definately wrong.

The Greens look like they're going to stand nearly everywhere, I expect you'll probably get a candidate from them. If the Tories are guaranteed to win your seat though, voting Lib Dem isn't any more of a wasted vote than voting Labour,
