Ladbrokes, the high street betting company, has announced Labour’s Clive Lewis as the favourite to win the Norwich South Parliamentary seat at the general election in 2015.
Ladbrokes has Lewis 1/5 to replace the Liberal Democrat incumbent, Simon Wright. Wright is 1/8 on to hold the seat for a second term in parliament. The company stated that t is unlikely that there will be a higher price on any incumbent MP. The Conservatives are much further out on 1/16 to win the Norfolk seat.
The Latest YouGov poll showed the Liberal Democrats to be lagging behind in fourth, with Labour on 40 holding an eight point lead over the Conservatives on 32 in second. The poll also showed the Liberal Democrats to be 51 points behind Labour among voters aged 18 to 24.
On the issue of education, young people too are far more likely to vote Labour than Liberal Democrat, according to the latest polling information.
