This isn’t necessarily surprising, given the polls and the state of the Labour Party, but it is certainly a record in the ConservativeHome survey of Party members who read this site.
Of those who took part, 96.6 per cent anticipate that the General Election will result in a Conservative majority Government. That’s a record – beating the previous high of 95.5 per cent.
A further 1.14 per cent expect a Conservative minority Government, and 1.07 per cent foresee a Tory-led coalition. Only 0.5 per cent – seven votes out of 1,406 cast – predict a Labour majority Government.
It is of course good that Party members are feeling positive. However, as we pointed out recently, complacency is dangerous among campaigners and damaging when one’s election messaging revolves around the prospect of Corbyn gaining power.
