Professor of Politics at the University of Strathclyde John Curtice has said polling suggests that although the Conservative Party will win the largest number of seats at the general election, they will not get an overall majority.
He added that "meanwhile, there is a desperate, desperate race going on between Labour and the Liberal Democrats for second in votes.
"We certainly don't know how that's going to come out. The Liberal Democrats will really want to come second in votes. They can really argue that the system is busted. The Labour party will be desperate to come second in votes, because otherwise the headline will be: 'worst Labour results since 1918'. An awful lot now rests not just simply on who comes first, but on that race for second place."
