According to new analysis conducted by polling company YouGov, it is doubtful that the Conservatives will gain any parliamentary seats in Birmingham when polls open on June 8.

It has also been reported that the Tories will fail to win any Black Country seats they were banking on.

YouGov has stated that Birmingham Selly Oak “is in fact a safe seat,” despite having previously been seen as a possible Conservative gain. Birmingham Edgbaston is also highly likely to stay Labour.

However, Walsall North is one potential area for Tory gain. Currently a Labour safe seat, it is reported by YouGov to “lean Conservative.”

YouGov founder Stephan Shakespeare introduced YouGov’s 2017 general election model in a statement on the YouGov website: “This is just a snapshot based on data from the past seven days and people can and do change their minds in the closing days of a general election campaign.”
