UK-Elect General Election Forecast, May 8th 2019.

Labour Gain 38 Seats, 41 short of Overall Majority.

In this UK-Elect General Election forecast, the first using an updated method that allows for the Brexit Party and Change UK, the Labour Party are projected to win 284 seats (+38 from current situation) leaving them 41 seats short of a majority, 24 ahead of the Conservative's 260 seats (-53), with the Scottish National Party on 53 seats (+18), the Liberal Democrats 27 (+16), the Democratic Unionist Party 10, Sinn Fein 7, Plaid Cymru 5 (+1), Green 1 and Others 3.

The UK-Elect v11.2 method was used for the forecast, using overall GB-wide percentages. Candidate-specific settings were not utilised, but the automatic addition of Brexit Party and Change UK candidates was enabled.

The percentages used were: Lab 30%, Con 27%, Brexit Party 14%, LD 11%, Green 4.5%, UKIP 4%, Change UK 4%, SNP 3.5%. These percentages are based on an approximate average of the latest polls.

One factor of interest is that current opinion polls are currently very fluid, and vary considerably between the European Parliament elections (where Brexit Party support approaches 30% in some polls, and Green and Change UK support is also much higher) and General Elections.
