Both the Green Party and the Welsh Nationalists are using social media to encourage Labour supporters to use their otherwise wasted vote for them. However, the table above shows that there is great danger from UKIP, a party which denies both climate change and Welsh identity. The Green vote is too far behind and the chances of a second seat for Plaid Cymru are remote. UKIP vote is on the increase according to the opinion polls, so the only safe switch is to the Liberal Democrats and Peter Black.
