Conservatives hold Copeland

The Conservatives have held the Copeland seat, with both the Conservative and Labour votes being well up. Fantastic and historic result for Trudy Harrison.

Until last night the 15,866 votes which I polled in 2010 had been the highest vote achieved by a Conservative candidate in Copeland in the past 25 years.

Trudy Harrison didn't just break that record but smashed it with 21,066, an increase of nearly 50% on the by-election vote just a few weeks ago, and not just higher than any Conservative candidate in the constituency has ever achieved but more than any candidate of any party has managed since 1997.
