UK's Cameron Leads Late Election Polls

Monday, 03 May 2010 10:39 PM

LONDON - David Cameron is closing in on an outright victory in Thursday’s election and has to win over voters in just 14 seats to secure a parliamentary majority, according to a poll of marginal constituencies for The Daily Telegraph.

With momentum building behind the Tories, party strategists believe Mr Cameron is “on the cusp” of being able to form a government by the weekend. The Conservatives are on course to seize at least 103 seats from Labour – 14 shy of the 117 needed to secure an overall majority, the poll shows.

It found a swing of 7.5 per cent to the Tories in the Labour seats they are targeting.

Mr Cameron’s personal poll rating has been improving since last week’s leaders’ debate and the incident in which Gordon Brown called a Rochdale pensioner “bigoted”. The Tory leader’s “net favourability” rating is up by nine percentage points, the survey shows.
