Tory vote surges but is it enough?

The final polls of the general election indicate that the Conservative share of the vote has picked up dramatically over the last few days with the latest poll putting them nine percentage points ahead of Labour. However, even a nine point lead over the Labour Party will not be enough to give the Conservatives a majority government and there will need to be a coalition agreement if David Cameron is to gain office.

However, today there are further rumours regarding a potential Labour and Liberal Democrat coalition government which would effectively sideline David Cameron and allow Gordon Brown to remain in 10 Downing Street. Whether or not we will see a surge in Conservative support as the hours tick down, and the polls close, remains to be seen but this election is literally on a knife edge.

Tactical voting may well come into play after a number of prominent Labour ministers stepped forward to suggest Labour Party supporters should vote in favour of Liberal Democrats where there are outright battles between Conservative candidates and Liberal Democrat candidates. Whether or not this is strictly speaking within the spirit of the general election is debatable but at this point anything goes.
