The 2015 General Election is almost too close to call, but that doesn’t stop any of us trying.
We asked a few friends of DTW whose opinions we trust and respect to give us their views on who will be running the show come 8 May. Interesting reading!
David Cameron will be happy with the predictions as most respondents see him remaining as Prime Minister but half say it might not be for too long. The most popular scenario here is him remaining as PM and attempting to govern as a minority administration while one foresees a loose coalition between the Conservative party and the SNP – stranger things have happened.
The performance of UKIP could be critical here in the number of seats they could deliver to any potential coalition and all respondents saw them increasing their current tally of two, but whether it is one more or three more to a total of five MPs will be interesting to see.
Respondents were split on the turnout of the election, with half expecting an increase on 2010 and half expecting that to fall.
A range of key issues were suggested as to what would have the main influence in the election, but the most popular was the economy.
