VERY EARLY EXIT POLL: General Election Exit Polls and Results Live – Forecast Says No Majority for Conservatives

by Laura Hughes, The Telegraph:

The Conservatives are set to be the largest party but without an overall majority according a joint BBC/Sky/ITV exit poll, which indicated the Tories will win 314 seats and Labour 266.

The poll suggest Britain is heading for a hung parliament, with Conservatives 12 seats short of the 326 they need for an absolute majority in the Commons.

The poll put Tories on 314 seats, with Labour on 266, the Scottish National Party on 34, Liberal Democrats on 14, Plaid Cymru on three and Greens on one.

Polling stations opened at 7am and they closed at 10pm with the first result, likely to be Houghton and Sunderland South which has been quickest at the last five elections, expected to declare just one hour later at 11pm.

The Conservatives had as much as a 24 point lead when the snap election was called by the Prime Minister.

But Ipsos MORI’s final 2017 election survey for the Evening Standard, which was undertaken on Tuesday and Wednesday this week, puts the Conservatives on 44 per cent and Labour on 36.

Meanwhile, a YouGov poll that was published on Wednesday evening put the Tories on 42 per cent and Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party on 35, a lead of seven points.

If those results are replicated at the polls today the Conservatives would end up with an increased majority of about 50 seats, up on the 17 the party enjoyed previously.
