Since the Prime Minister appeared on the Piers Morgan show, the Conservatives lead, according to the most recent poll, is now down to 6 points, from the 11 point lead earlier this new year. The Conservatives were 28 points ahead at the beginning of the year.
Conservatives Support Is Shaky
The Conservatives are still heavily odds on at 1.11 with Paddy Power, but this price is expected to get bigger as the election gets closer.A Betfair lay to back trade of the Conservatives looks a good opportunity. Michael Heseltine and Norman Tebbitt, senior Tory figures, have questioned ‘Call Me Dave’s’ ability to run the country and these interventions have put some doubt into the minds of voters.
Back Labour Today
Labour is the best price 8/1 with SkyBet and the momentum is now with them, if they can avoid any more damaging headlines we expect them to shorten in price. Right now would be the time to step in and back Gordon.
Liberals In The Marginals
The Liberals are being greatly aided this uncertainty in the market and in the minds of the electorate. It will be worth supporting Nick Cleggs party, especially with betting available in marginal constituencies where they could win seats. For a full list of political betting markets go to BedFair, Paddy Power and SkyBet.
