2015 General Election results

After 2015's General Election, David Cameron's Conservative Party emerged victorious - winning 331 seats, which is enough to form a majority government. 

A ruthless strategy of targeting Lib Dem seats meant that the Tories made a net gain of 24 seats - leaving Nick Clegg with just eight. 

Labour were the second largest party, although their loss of seats led to the resignation of Ed Miliband. Despite their vote share increasing marginally, the loss of almost all of their Scottish constituencies to the SNP meant that the party had a net loss of 26 seats.

The Tories had the largest vote share of any party, claiming 11.3m votes - 36.9 per cent of the total, enough to claim over half the seats in Parliament. 

Labour's vote share increased by 1.5 points to 30.4 per cent (9.3m votes) in the election, while UKIP came in third in terms of votes, winning 12.6 per cent (3.9m votes) of the country's vote.

Significant regional differences emerged after the vote in 2015, with Scotland immediately clear due to the almost universal support of the SNP - who claimed all but three Scottish constituencies.

Labour were almost completely wiped out in the south of England, holding onto just a few urban constituencies and leaving swathes of blue across the country. 

Ed Miliband's party did, however, succeed in winning in London and parts of the North of England, the Midlands and Wales - where the majority of the party's seats now reside.

2017 General Election

Theresa May has called a new General Election for 8 June 2017, amid polls that indicate that she could win a huge Tory majority in Parliament.

Some polls have the Tories at almost double the vote share of Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party, indicating that the most likely outcome of the election would be a landslide victory that would increase her party’s current working majority of 17 in the House of Commons.

What are the key battlegrounds?

The Conservatives are likely to gain a series of key target seats in the upcoming General Election, capitalising on their strong position in the polls over the Labour Party. 

An analysis of the 2015 General Election results by The Telegraph has shown that around 58 seats in Labour's North and Midlands heartlands are under threat due to the Brexit effect in the upcoming snap election on June 8.

There are 58 Labour-held seats where the Conservatives are fewer than 9,000 votes behind and where the constituents voted Leave in the EU referendum last June - 37 of which are located in the Midlands or in the North of England.

The seat with the narrowest Labour majority is Halifax where the Conservatives finished just 428 votes behind Labour in the 2015 General Election. This seat is particularly vulnerable due to the fact that Halifax voted to Leave the EU by 60 per cent.

The Tories will, however, face pressure from enthusiastic EU-backing Lib Dems who will seek to re-gain seats that they lost in the 2015 General Election.

Theresa May currently holds Remain-backing Lewes with a majority of 1,083 (2.1 per cent) and Twickenham with a majority of 2,017 (3.3 per cent). Both of these areas were taken from the Lib Dems by David Cameron in 2015, and Tim Farron's pro-EU party will be seeking on winning them back.
