Torbay Elections 2015
The fight for the Parliamentary Seat of Torbay does look a 2 horse race between Conservative and Liberal Democrat. As at present the 2 leading candidates are promoting themselves in similar and well balanced campaigns aimed at their core voters.Ukip are yet to name a candidate and could stir the pot but the Labour Candidate is rather anonymous at present and needs to up their game .
The mayoral election could be a close run thing between Conservative and Ukip as the present mayor and the former chairman of the council till last year both have a public image and presence that could make for a close result because of voting system of second preference votes. Then if there is only one Independent Candidate who knows what the result might be?
The local council elections as it is General Election Day will see a surge in Conservative and Liberal Democrat votes as voters double up in voting for their General Election and local candidates together. Could be a hung Council or Conservative increased majority but then that is only going on passed results and could change in 2015.
