Sheffield UK General Election Forecast

The only constituency where there is a chance of a change in MP / party is for Sheffield Central, which would require a large 12% swing from Labour to Lib Dems. None of the other four constituencies is expected to see any change given the large swings required of more than 17%.

Out of the 650 seats, approx 390 require a swing of 15% or more which therefore means that the election battle will be fought out in the 140 or so marginal constituencies.
