    YouGov has not done an exit poll. A re-contact survey today simply gave us no reason to change our final numbers from yesterday.
    Reporters making stuff up. Tut, tut.

    Most seem to be doubting this BBC exit poll.

    We'll find out over the next 8+ hours!

    Sunderland now announcing.

    massively underprepared for this evening
    If the evening pans out the way that poll is predicting I'll need something a lot stronger than wine
    If anything I'll be more upset that Katie Hopkins won't be leaving us

    EVERY poll has it closer. Except for the exit poll.
    I've just said YouGov EXIT poll.
    The point I was trying to make - though obviously not very well - is that the BBC exit poll is the odd one out here; every other poll commissioned over the last few weeks has had it a much tighter race.

    I want to see Paddy Ashdown eat his hat though
    But I am hoping the BBC poll is spectactularly wrong.

    It's been a cracking election for them. I admire Nicola Sturgeon for giving people reasons to vote for her and not like the other parties who just spew out reasons to vote against all their rivals.

    Surprised by the exit poll after all the polls showed that it was so close. If it ends like this maybe it's because they don't like ed Miliband and don't trust labour with the economy. As much as I don't think everything the tory's have done I think their a safer option for the country and I feel they should be given the chance to finish the job.

    Is this intentionally a joke?

    Obviously cannot if you look at the past 5 years.


    Anyway, the exit poll being as close as it was last time was probably a fluke.
    I think the Conservatives' strategy over the last 5 years has been pretty good. Hopefully they will get that vindication via a win this time.
    But where will the axe fall? Appreciate the cuts over the last five years haven't affected me personally so although I don't agree in the slightest with their overall ideology, it's not been a bad five years. However, that said they've catastrophically failed to deliver on any of their key election promises from five years ago, and although the right-winged media will say otherwise, debt has tripled under their watch.

    If they win, I can see a very difficult five years ahead for us whilst they 'finish the job'.

    It's crazy really....we've just had an austerity government....Labour should be way ahead. So I can only think people couldn't bring themselves to vote for Ed Miliband

    I wouldn't mind if Labour won because Katie Hopkins said that she'd leave the country if so. Bye to ha.

    UKIP is the worst party of all. I hate Nigel Farage so much.

    I don't think IF the Tories do well it'll be because they've done a good job. This election has been the most uncertain for decades, people are not really believing in any party, and all of them are sounding very much the same. In periods of uncertainty, I genuinely feel people don't want 'change' necessarily, as that's probably more scary than keeping things as they are - thus, the exit poll results.
