Projected national share

In an analysis for the "Sunday Times", psephologists Colin Rallings and Michael Thrasher, of the University of Plymouth, produced an estimate of the national share of the vote. According to their calculations, the parties would have the following share of the vote:

*Conservative: 39%
*Labour: 26%
*Liberal Democrats: 25%
*Others: 10%

They note that this is estimate not intended to predict the vote share in an actual general election, because voters often vote differently in general elections due to local issues, or to a wish to "fire a shot across the government's bows" without actually removing it. [Colin Rallings and Michael Thrasher, "Tories approach the point of take-off", "Sunday Times", May 7, 2006, p. 13]

The BBC had a similar national share prediction, based on the results of 950 key wards:

*Conservative: 40%
*LibDem: 27%
*Labour: 26%
*Others: 7% [http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/bsp/hi/vote2006/locals/html/region_99999.stm]
