The Blenheim Park analysis

BlenheimparkThis graphic shows the percentage of votes gained by the parties in Blenheim Park ward from 1996 to 2012. (Note that boundary changes in 2001 created the modern Blenheim Park ward; prior to this there was a bigger Blenheim ward.)

All elections in this period have seen the Tories and Lib Dems occupy the top two slots. Of the fourteen contests the Liberal Democrats have won a dozen, although there has been a number of very close contests. Recent years has seen declining support for these two with the Labour and UKIP trending upwards. It will be interesting to see whether this continues this May, and whether the gap narrows enough to be able to declare Blenheim Park a three or four-way marginal.
