Average of polls shows Labour ahead by six percent – best in five years and big enough for a clear parliamentary majority
A new graph of average ‘Westminster voting intention’ polling figures for the last two months shows Labour turning a Tory lead of almost eight points in March to a Labour lead of six points:
As the chart’s creator Matt Thomas observed:
Labour now has a 6% lead in GE poll of polls over the Tories. Their highest lead since Feb 2014.
Two months ago the Tories were leading by 7.6%. This is a record polling swing outside of a GE campaign.
But that’s not all. The latest polls suggest that if a general election was held now, Labour would win a convincing majority in the House of Commons – wiping out some of the Tories’ best-known names in the process:
The concerted efforts of mainstream media and anti-Labour mouthpieces both inside and outside the party have persuaded some Labour activists that things are going badly under Jeremy Corbyn – a shameless return to the pre-2017 narrative.
But the numbers show that in spite of the complexity and challenges of the current situation, with the appalling rise of the far-right fuelled by the reckless arrogance of many centrists, Corbyn’s Labour is steering a course for the good of – and that appeals to – the many.
There’s certainly no room for complacency – Labour led in 2014 but lost the 2015 general election under Miliband. But there’s also neither room nor cause for despair. Labour are on course for government – and no MSM water-muddying should be allowed to divert or detract from that fact.
