LIB Dem candidate for Colchester Sir Bob Russell could be set to get as little 12 per cent of the vote, according to a You Gov poll.

The pollsters released estimates for constituencies across the country on Wednesday, eight days ahead of the General Election.

In Colchester, the data shows Sir Bob could get a low of 12 per cent and a high of 25 per cent. His average has been put at 18 per cent.

The poll is topped by Conservative Will Quince, whose average has been set at 43 per cent of the vote.

However, the figures show his return could be as low as 37 per cent or as high as 49 per cent.

Labour's Tim Young could be set to garner an average of 35 per cent but his vote could be as high as 43 per cent or as low as 28 per cent.

The pollsters' figures suggest Green candidate Mark Goacher will get a maximum of 4 per cent.

In Witham, which takes in Stanway, Tory Priti Patel looks set to re-take the seat with ease.

The Government minister's share of the vote could be as high as 68 per cent. At its lowest, the figures show her her share will be 57 per cent.

Labour falls some way back, with a high of 33 per cent while Lib Dem Jo Hayes's share could be as little as 5 per cent or as much as 14 per cent.

In Harwich and North Essex, veteran Bernard Jenkin looks set to take at least 42 per cent of the vote. But his share could be as high as 56 per cent.

Labour's Rosalind Scott could take as much as 36 per cent of the vote while the figures show Lib Dem Dominic Graham could get a maximum of 15 per cent.

In Clacton, Ukip support appears to have waned significantly, to as low as 6 per cent. However the statistics show Paul Oakley could garner as high as 22 per cent.

Conservative Giles Watling seems safe with at least 42 per cent of the vote.

The pollsters say Labour's Tasha Osben is set to get at least 21 per cent of the vote but her share could rise to 26 per cent.

You Gov uses a method named multilevel regression and post-stratification to produce estimates for small areas, such as parliamentary constituencies.

Their estimates are made up of poll data from the preceding seven days which is then set against data from the Office of National Statistics and the British Election Study.
