Leaderless Tories climb and Labour falls sharply as Starmer’s personal ratings also fall
The latest YouGov poll of Westminster voting intention suggests that it’s better for a party to have no leader than to have Keir Starmer.

The tightness of the polling means that the Tories, with no leader, would win the most parliamentary seats on the latest numbers.
Starmer’s personal ratings have also tumbled, leaving him now behind Tory leadership contender Liz Truss – one of the dimmest-seeming people in politics – and considered a disaster as party leader by the public, as the ‘Leftie Stats’ Twitter account has observed:
It turns out the public wants a Labour leader that behaves like a Labour leader instead of a Cameron-Blair tribute act who’s terrified of actually opposing. Who’d ever have guessed – apart from the many millions that voted for Jeremy Corbyn in two general elections?
