Vote swapping and tactical voting - take the survey

Vote swapping was credited with taking seats from the Tories in the 2001 general election, so should claimants be doing it now?

This election is on a knife edge.

The Conservatives are pouring huge amounts of money into identifying and contacting a tiny number of undecided voters – perhaps 40,000 – in key marginals. If they succeed in persuading them to vote Tory, the election may well be theirs.

This is a tactic that won’t even show up in the polls.

So, should claimants – who have the most to lose if the Tories get in - also be resorting to ‘under the radar’ tactics, such as vote swapping and tactical voting?

You can read more about these issues here.
