In the latest round of General Election polls, YouGov and Exit Polls have released very different results.
The YouGov poll indicates that the Conservatives will have 284 elected MPs, with Labour falling behind with 263 seats.
These come shortly after the combined exit polls released by the BBC, ITV and Sky and show a significant contradiction between results.
The YouGov poll is more in line with what pollsters have been predicting in the run up to the election, adding doubt about the accuracy of the exit polls, which were very accurate in 2010.
This follows the Liberal Democrats dismissing the BBC exit poll forecast, insisting it did not tally with the information they had received from their activists.
A party spokesman said: “This exit poll does not reflect any of our intelligence from today or in the run-up to polling day.We will wait for the final results.”
YouGov poll predictions are as follows:
Tories- 284 (32 less projected seats than Exit Polls)
Labour- 263 (24 more projected seats than Exit Polls)
Liberal Democrats-31 (21 more projected seats than Exit Polls)
SNP-48 (10 less projected seats than Exit Polls)
UPDATE: Academics in the political field have weighed in on the shock Exit Poll which put Conservatives ahead with a total of 316 seats.
While party leaders have shared their reaction through Twitter, The Conversation UK, has reported reactions from political experts.
They said that: “It is worth noting that, as Nate Silver is reminding us over at FiveThirtyEight, the margin between Labour and the Conservatives was off by an average of 39 seats from 1974-1997.”
