Professor Steve Fisher on the 3 May Local Elections
Posted: 03 May 2018

Professor Stephen Fisher's predictions about today's local elections have been cited by both the Times and the New Statesman to highlight the possibility of both Labour and the Conservatives gaining seats.

Francis Elliott, writing in the Times, notes that there is no agreement amongst the experts, and that '[much] of the contrast arises from differences in modelling. Professor Fisher gave more weight to opinion polls, and warned that his forecast was subject to more uncertainty than usual.'
