General Election 2024: Exit poll predicts huge Conservative loss with Labour to gain huge majority

Labour is on course for a landslide, according to the exit poll projection, with 410 seats - with the Tories gaining the lowest number of MPs on record. The Conservatives are set for 131 seats according to the poll, which was released just after 10pm on Thursday, July 4.

The exit poll also forecasts the Liberal Democrats on 61 seats, Reform UK on 13 and The Green Party on two. In Scotland, the SNP are expected to secure 10 seats with Plaid Cymru in Wales on four. The SNP are on course to drop to 10 seats in Scotland, an exit poll for the General Election suggests.

The party won 48 seats at the last election in 2019, but would loosen its Westminster grip after almost a decade if the prediction comes to fruition.

Sir Keir Starmer has thanked those who voted for him and “put their trust in a changed Labour Party ” after the exit poll revealed he is on course for a landslide.

“To everyone who has campaigned for Labour in this election, to everyone who voted for us and put their trust in our changed Labour Party – thank you,” he posted to X, formerly Twitter.
