UK-Elect General Election "What If" Forecast, December 5th 2015.

Labour Gain 79 seats, Conservatives Lose 91.

In this "What-If" ("What if the Oldham West and Royton by-election result vote swings were repeated nationwide") UK-Elect forecast, the Labour Party are forecast to win 311 seats (+79), 72 ahead of the Conservative's 239 seats (-91), with the Scottish National Party on 55 seats (-1), the Liberal Democrats 18 (+10), the Democratic Unionist Party 8, Sinn Fein 4, UKIP 4 (+3), Plaid Cymru 3, SDLP 3, UUP 2, Green 1 and Others 2.

The UK-Elect forecast was directly based on the Oldham West and Royton by-election result, with UK-Elect automatically calculating the equivalent national vote percentages during the forecasting process - Lab 37.78%, Con 27.20%, UKIP 15.44%, LD 7.89, Green 2.73%. The UK-Elect v10.1 method was used for the forecast (although the results produced by the common Uniform National Swing technique are actually very similar in this case). It is interesting to note that, in forecasting terms, the most significant factor in the Oldham result is the decline in the Conservative vote. As a result of this not only Labour, but also UKIP and the Liberal Democrats are predicted to gain what, for them, are significant extra seats.

This forecast was made using current UK electoral boundaries (see note below for more information).

Notes: The forecast is based upon the current electoral boundaries. Note that these boundaries are likely to change before the next election, and that it is expected that the changes will favour the Conservatives, perhaps by 10 or 15 seats or more.

Results from Northern Ireland are based on those of the last election.
