More than half of voters now believe Ed Miliband will be the next prime minister either in a majority Labour government or as the biggest party in a coalition, according to the latest Opinium/Observer poll.
When voters were asked what they thought was the most likely outcome of the next election, 29% predicted a hung parliament with Labour as the largest party, while 25% expected Miliband’s party to win an overall majority.
By contrast, just 9% of voters expected an outright Conservative majority in 2015, with 16% expecting the Tories to be the largest party in another hung parliament.

Lord Ashcroft, the Conservative peer who commissioned the poll, said it showed the “dilemma” that the Lib Dems face in trying to hold their 57 seats at the next general election.
