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 and therefore mean the sitting MP's have effectively a job for life without any real impact from local issues. The outcome of the election will be decided in the 120 marginal constituencies whose electorate will be wooed by the candidates with promises of new hospitals, health centres, schools, nurseries and more over the coming 4 weeks.
