BBC: Election 2015: Exit poll puts Tories close to majority

London (CNN)It's been billed as one of the closest elections in British history, but an early exit poll projection indicates Conservatives could have gained ground at the polls in the country's general election.

Results from an exit poll run jointly by the BBC, Sky News and ITN project Conservatives in the lead and gaining 14 seats in Parliament, going from 302 seats to 316. Official results haven't been announced yet. But if the exit poll projections hold true, it's a result that would keep Prime Minister David Cameron in power and could strengthen his party's pull.
