Labour is set to make sweeping gains in London with both Conservative and Liberal Democrat MPs losing their seats, according to a new opinion poll.
Six Tory seats could fall to Labour with another three on a knife-edge. But the poll also suggests the Conservatives might win some constituencies from the Lib Dems.
The apparent collapse of the Liberal Democrat vote could see the party all-but wiped out in London, leaving Business Secretary Vince Cable as the sole MP.
The exclusive ComRes survey for ITV News, reveals a 6 per cent swing from Conservative to Labour since the last general election in 2010.
- The poll puts Labour on 46 per cent with the Conservatives trailing 14 points behind on 32 per cent
- Ukip’s 9 per cent share of the vote puts the party ahead of the Lib Dems on 8 per cent
- The Green Party is in fifth place on just 4 per cent, suggesting a decline in support in London since the Mayoral election in 2012 when the party’s candidate Jenny Jones beat her Lib Dem rival, Brian Paddick
The economy, health service, immigration and housing topped the list of voters’ concerns.
ComRes asked more than 1,000 Londoners how they would vote in a general election tomorrow.
High-profile Liberal Democrat casualties could include veteran MP Simon Hughes in Bermondsey and Old Southwark, Energy Secretary Ed Davey in Kingston & Surbiton and the driving force behind gay marriage, Lynne Featherstone, in Hornsey & Wood Green.
Tory MPs at risk from a 6 per cent swing to Labour include Matthew Offord in ultra-marginal Hendon, former Buckingham Palace advisor Mary MacLeod in Brentford & Isleworth and ex-London Assembly members Angie Bray in Ealing Central & Acton and Bob Blackman in Harrow East.
The survey is in stark contrast to recent nationwide opinion polls which show a much narrower gap between the two main parties outside of London.
