Short SKWAWKBOX poll suggests high level of support
A short poll run by the SKWAWKBOX ahead of Barry Gardiner’s decision on whether he will run for the Labour leadership suggests a high level of support among members for him to stand.
The poll, which ran for four hours last night after news broke that he was considering a bid, showed 82.49% of respondents in favour:
Gardiner is expected to announce his decision by the end of the day.
The poll question asked whether Gardiner should stand, and therefore does not mean that all who responded ‘yes’ would necessarily back him as leader.
However, while some may simply wish to broaden the options for supporters of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership, it would probably translate into a considerable degree of support among the grassroots for the Scot with a record of frightening interviewers and who warned all along about the consequences of abandoning Labour’s commitment to Brexit.
