Farage set for election disaster.
NIGEL Farage is set to lose his seventh bid to become an MP - forcing him to quit as UKIP leader.
A poll yesterday showed the party chief is on course for embarrassment in the Tory-held South Thanet seat.
He trails the Conservative candidate by one point with Labour a close third in the survey, commissioned by a UKIP supporter and donor.
Farage has repeatedly vowed to stand down if he - a ils to win the marginal seat - a declaration aides claim shows how confident he is.
Yesterday, he confirmed: "I'll stand down as leader. Let somebody else have the fun."
The move would trigger a " divisive leadership contest with UKIP's many egos vying for the top spot.
Likely successors could include the party's first MP Douglas Carswell and deputy chairman Suzanne Evans.
