In the case of the Liberal Democrats they shrank from 22.3% to 10.95% yesterday. A figure that is broadly in line with their national opinion poll ratings.
Of course, if you get the same vote on a low turnout simple arithmetic says that your percentage will be better. The same can be said for UKIP, Green and even dear old Robert Griffiths of the Communists who more than doubled his percentage of the vote. Mind you it only went up by 17 extra votes to 213.
