According to a poll of MSN readers, Nigel Farage's party will seize the seat from the Liberal Democrats when the contest takes place on 28 February. The byelection is being held following the resignation of former MP Chris Huhne, who stood down after admitting to perverting the course of justice. Over 13,000 votes were cast in the MSN poll. Asked which party will win the Eastleigh byelection, 38% of people said Ukip, while 35% voted for Labour. Just 19% thought the Tories might win, while only 4% believed the Liberal Democrats would hold on to the seat.Editor's note - UK Independence, right-libertarian (anti-Islamist, anti-Welfare state, Pro-liberty/anti-Nanny-state), merged with the UK Libertarian Party last year.
