One in Three Labour Voters Fleeing From Ken

While the apparatchiks over at LabourList declare that “Ken’s campaign is in fact moving from strength to strength”, the Labour Uncut website is home to Labour members of the reality based community. This morning they have gone tonto on Ken. With facts to back up their argument… 

While Boris Johnson’s 49%-41% lead on first preferences was widely reported, some of the most striking results were lost in the news vortex of the budget. Chief among these is the scale of Ken Livingstone’s problem with Labour supporters: 31% say they will not vote for him in the mayoral election. Just weeks before the election, almost 1 in 3 Labour supporters are refusing to back the party’s candidate for mayor.

The figures highlight what anecdotally we have been saying for weeks – many on the left just cannot bring themselves to vote for the hypocritical friend of the clerics.

Those Labour types that are still in denial that Ken’s tax hypocrisy is not a problem need only look at these numbers.
