Despite not winning an overall majority, the Tories still handily beat the other parties and achieved a sizable swing of 5%, gaining 97 seats and taking 36.1% of the total vote. In fact, they gained more seats than in any election in the past 80 years and ended up with a higher share of the vote than Labour achieved in the last election, in 2005, when they won with a majority of more than 60. On the other extreme, Labour lost more seats (91) than the party had let slip in any general election since 1931.
