Why Jo Swinson and the Lib Dems LOST Seats General Election 2019 - Sheffiled Hallam Result

ElectionOracle / General Election 2019 Dec 13, 2019 - 12:26 PM GMT

By: N_Walayat


According to the pollsters such as Yougov, the Lib Dem's were supposed to hoover up seats in REMAIN constituencies from at least Labour if not the Tories. But that's not what happened! They FAILED to win seats where they were ahead in the polls such as in the Sheffield Hallam constituency. Even Jo Swinson the Lib Deam leader lost her seat to the SNP! Resulting in the Lib Dems dropping from 20 MP's to just 11!

Find out why in this precient video posted the day BEFORE polling day for why the Lib Dem's had burned their support in many consituencies across Britain, such as in Sheffield Hallam where the polls said they were ahead by 4% i.e. 36% to 32% Labour. Instead Labour held onto the seat by 700 votes.

I hope Lib Dem's learn the valuable lessons from this video for next time, though the next election will now be in 5 years time!
