The Labor opposition crushes the Tories in the polls

The British Labor Party registered an unprecedented score since the late 1990s, in a survey that gives it a 33-point advantage in terms of voting intentions ahead of the Conservatives, mired in the fiasco of the Liz Government’s fiscal measures Truss.

According to a study by YouGov for the Times published on Thursday, Labor collects 54% of voting intentions (+9 points), compared to only 21% of the Tories (-7 points). It would be, according to the Times and the polling institute, the biggest lead and score any party has enjoyed since the late 1990s.

According to YouGov, this progress is explained in particular by the proportion (17%) of voters who had voted for the Conservatives in the 2019 elections -triumphant for the party then led by Boris Johnson- and now say they are ready to vote for Labor. . They also benefit from the indecision (26%) of these same voters and the fall in the intention to vote for the Liberal Democrats.

This study was conducted with a sample of 1,712 adults on September 28 and 29, following the announcement of massive tax cuts that brought the UK to the brink of financial crisis. Two other polls give Labor 19 points (Deltapoll) and 21 points (Survation) ahead of the Conservatives.

Britain’s Labor Party has been in opposition since Tony Blair’s successor, Gordon Brown, failed to win a majority in the 2010 general election.

Leading the Labor Party for two years, Keir Starmer has taken a much more central position compared to his predecessor Jeremy Corbyn.
