Are the Tories the most unpopular Newly elected UK goverment ever and will they last?

The freshly elected Tories seem to be facing protests on a daily basis and given they only polled 24% of the electoral Vote are they the most unpopular freshly elected UK Government ever and will they last a full term ?

Yes they will.

Their only problem will be in-fighting, particularly towards the end of their term when they have to find a new leader and possibly in the aftermath of the referendum.

Outside of Scotland, Liverpool and central London they appear very popular.

Do you really believe this? If anything, the electorate seem quite happy they've made the right choice. I am unaware of the daily protests you speak of. Of course I hope it goes catastrophically wrong for Cameron because I think he's been a poor PM, but you cannot argue that he hasn't won an impressive mandate and most people seem to be allowing him something of a honeymoon period.

Still doesn't account for the low 24 % overall vote for them really if that is the case .

66.1% of registered voters turned out.
24% of those voted Tory, so that is roughly 16% of the registered voters voted for them.

44% of the registered voters thought no-one should be elected.
16% thought the Tories should win.
The other 40% thought someone else should win.

So, factually, approx 16% of the country is happy with the Tories.

I don't know if that makes them the most unpopular - but you could hardly call them popular.

Did they not receive more votes than Blair in 1997 and also one of the few governments who increased their number of votes after being elected.

I think the Tories are full of shit, comically inept when it comes to the economy, and determined to rid this country of any opportunities for social progression whatsoever

Sadly, however, I believe I'm in a minority. I believe most people at worst tolerate them, and mostly think they're better than the alternatives.

Seriously let it go.

The Conservatives won this election fair and square. Some left wingers on here need to get over it and start analysing why people voted Conservative and why most of the UK is a sea of blue, rather than whinging about them.

He'd wrongly assumed the OP hadn't already done the share of vote to share of electorate calculation.
