BALLOT BOX: Black voters
WITH BLACK voters tipped to hold the keys to Number 10 depending on if and where they place their vote, a Voice poll has found that nearly half of our readers have already made their mind up about which party to back.
The results show 45 per cent of our readers say they will be voting in the General Election in May and know exactly who they are voting for.
A further 17 per cent said they were still undecided but were planning to vote, while another 17 per cent said they were on the fence over whether to vote at all.
Nearly a quarter – 21 per cent – ruled out voting whatsoever, either in protest or because they do not care about politics at all.
A fresh Sky News poll is predicting that Ed Milband’s Labour party will gain the most seats, but projections suggest the country is heading for another hung parliament.
The broadcaster’s figures reveal Labour may fall short of an overall majority by just 40 seats.
The Green Party, UKIP and the Scottish National Party (SNP) may lure voters away from the two main parties.
And, if pollsters are correct, the SNP could hold the key to any coalition.
The results come with just 100 days until the General Election scheduled for May 7, 2015.
A YouGov poll conducted in partnership with The Sun gives the Conservatives a one per cent lead over Labour at 34 per cent and 33 per cent, respectively.
UKIP is predicted to win 15 per cent of the vote share, followed by the Greens with seven per cent and the Lib Dems with six per cent.
