Hung parliament scenarios factoring in more liberal democrat MPs

By Patrick Dunleavy

Abstract

The Liberal Democrat surge puts us into new territory in forecasting how the 2010 Parliament will look. However, things work out from now on, it seems much less likely that David Cameron can command an overall Commons majority. His best outcome may now be a ‘shallow hung Parliament’, with the Tories as the largest party but no majority for legislation – which might lead to a second general election as early as May 2011
