Poll of Polls: Westminster Vote Intentions: 2 April

The graph below shows the latest What Scotland Thinks/ScotCen Poll of Polls of voting intentions in Scotland for the 2015 UK general election and how it has evolved over time.

The latest Poll of Polls is based on one poll by Panelbase, one by ICM, one by Survation, and one by the British Election Study.  Between them the four polls were conducted between 6 March and 2 April. The most recent addition is a poll by Panelbase whose fieldwork was concluded on 3 April. At the same time the series has been updated to incorporate results from the British Election Study, the fieldwork for which ended on 13 March but whose results were not published until 29 March.

In the 2010 general election, Labour won 42% of the vote in Scotland, the SNP 20%, the Liberal Democrats 19%, the Conservatives 17%, UKIP 1% and the Greens 1%. If the difference between those figures and the parties’ ratings in our latest poll of polls were to be replicated in each and every constituency, the Conservatives would win 1 seat, Labour 10, the Liberal Democrats 1, the SNP 47, UKIP none, and the Greens none.
