(Too) slowly but surely?

After the tragic events in Manchester and the suspension in the campaigns, things have started again and a couple new polls have been released. Some of the media have also picked up the trend I was observing from my model and so I have re-updated the results.


The increasing trend for Labour does see another little surge, as does the decreasing trend for the Tories. In comparison to my last update, the Lib Dem are slightly picking up again. But all in all, the numbers still tell kind of the same story, I guess.

                mean        sd 2.5% median   97.5%
Conservative 369.251 5.1765622  357    370 378.000
Labour       197.886 5.2142298  190    197 211.000
UKIP           0.000 0.0000000    0      0   0.000
Lib Dem       15.085 2.3852598   11     15  19.025
SNP           49.263 2.3965756   44     49  53.000
Green          0.000 0.0000000    0      0   0.000
PCY            0.515 0.8499985    0      0   3.000
Other          0.000 0.0000000    0      0   0.000

These are the summary results as of today (again after discounting past polls). Lib Dem move from a median number of expected seats of 14 to the current estimate of 15; Labour go from 191 to 197 and the Tories go from 376 to 370, still comfortably in the lead.

  1. The latest run of the model (as of today, May 30th --- full results *not* published on the blog), gives 39 swinging constituencies. I'll post with a graph to summarise this.
