Background

The most notable change since the previous general election has been the break up of the Social Liberal Party, which cost the Liberal Alliance almost half of its seat in the Legislative Assembly, this led to the small centre right break-away parties to merge with the Alliance of Conservatives and Unionists to form the Democratic Coalition. The Coalition has been extremely well received by voter, winning an outright majority in the English State Election, 2013 and only just falling short of a majority in the Ulster and Mann State Election, 2013.

Parties

Leftist Alliance: Since its victory in the previous general election the popularity of the Leftist Alliance has declined substantially, largely as a result of the aftermath of the 2008 Financial Crisis. The Alliance's popularity has been further hit by the emergence of both the extremely popular Democratic Coalition as the new leading opposition party and the New Left which is siphoning away more hardline votes from the Alliance.

Democratic Coalition: Since its formation in April 2013 the Democratic Coalition has been extremely well received by voters, enjoying a lead of roughly 20 % in the opinion polls, this high level of popularity was reflected by its landslide victory in the English State Elections just a month after its formation in which it won a landslide victory, being the first party in the history of the British Republic to win an outright majority in a state election. The Coalition also achieved a significant victory in the Ulster and Mann state election, which took place at the same time as the English State Election, where whilst falling just short of a majority the party was able to form a coalition with the Alliance Party to secure a majority.

Liberal Alliance: Following its heavy defeat in the last general election the Liberal Alliance has been torn apart by factionalism with several large factions leaving the Social Liberal Party to form the Democratic Coalition with the Conservatives and Ulster Unionists. Following this schism within the party its support has slumped to an all time low. Opinion polls predict the party will achieve roughly 15 % of the vote, a historic low for what was once the largest and most influential party in the British Republic.

Greens: Since entering a coalition with the Leftist Alliance at the 2010 general election the Green Party has lost almost all of the ground it gained since withdrawing from the Leftist Alliance in 2003, with opinion polls predicting the party will achieve roughly 10 % of the vote, the lowest figure since the 2003 general election.

New Left: Having formed between far left parties after the Worker's Party's virtual wipeout in the 2010 General election the party has managed to broaden its appeal the beyond the limited support base enjoyed by the Worker's Party. Regularly being placed at roughly 7 % in the opinion polls the party is poised to replace the greens as the second largest left wing party if trends continue.

Independent Britain: Despite its low levels of support at the previous general election Independent Britain has since managed to draw support from many moderate BUF supporters who supported the BUF for its anti-EU stance rather than its fascist ideology. This has enabled the party to grow substantially, being predicted to obtain roughly 4 % of the vote in opinion polls.
