The Labour Party continues it’s lead in the Polls. According to Britain Elects, Labour, despite once dipping behind the Tories ever so slightly, was 1.1% ahead of the Conservatives.
Labour are on 42%, as the Conservatives are on 40.9%. If this were accurate, this would be enough for Labour to become the largest Party, as the previous election was a tight race.
Labour won 40% of the popular vote in 2017, while the Conservatives won 42.3%. Many key marginals between the Conservatives and Labour became even more marginal. The Liberal Democrats gained 7.9% of the popular vote, but in this latest poll, they’re down to 6.9%, however this doesn’t mean they wouldn’t be able to increase the number of seats they could potentially gain, as in the past, as under Charles Kennedy they lost votes but gained seats as they concentrated on key marginals – however the issue of Brexit still daunts the Party as it doesn’t seem enough people were enthusiastic enough to completely block Brexit.
