What the polls suggest
Polls taken throughout the campaign have generally placed the ruling centre-right Conservatives neck-and-neck with the opposition - the centre-left Labour Party. One of the latest surveys to come out suggested Labour would take a narrow lead. The ICM poll put Ed Miliband's party on 35 percent, while David Cameron's Conservatives were on 34 percent.
The same survey put support for the anti-EU UK Independence Party (UKIP) at 11 percent and the centrist co-ruling Liberal Democrats on 9 percent.
One thing has become clear throughout the campaign, if the polls are to be believed: no party is likely to win an overall majority, meaning the UK is likely to form yet another coalition government.

euronewsWay back in 2010, Ed Miliband emerged from the shadow of his brother to win the leadership of the Labour party from former leader Gordon Brown. Dubbed ‘Red Ed’ he managed to win over the party with his more left-of-centre policies. It was a deliberate choice to turn away from the legacy of Tony Blair, whom many felt had drifted from Labour’s core principles. He also differed…

The Conservatives: 316
Liberal Democrats: 10
Plaid Cymru: 4

The poll suggests what analysts have been predicting for weeks: no party seems likely to win an overall majority. Of 650 seats in the House of Commons - the UK parliament - a total of 326 seats or more will be needed to win a majority.
Counting is underway.
