Just 29 People To Decide General Election Winner

Just 29 people to decide general election winner

Spread bet on politics with Sporting Index After months of campaigning, speeches and endless polling, the winner of the general election could be decided by just a small group of people. With polls indicating a hung parliament is likely, the balance of power and future direction of the country could be decided by a single seat. Here at Sporting Index, we're predicting that the size of the smallest winning margin in a single seat will be just 29 votes – or half the number of people that can sit on a double-decker bus. In 2010, Fermanagh and South Tyrone MP, Michelle Gildernew of Sinn Fein was elected by a majority of just four votes, three of which were later invalidated by an electoral court.
