Core Labour Vote There For UKIP’s Taking

A report out this morning from the National Centre for Social Research gives weight to the theory that Labour’s core vote is there for UKIP’s taking. 70% of voters in local authority rented homes voted Leave, as did 68% of those in housing association accommodation.

66% of those earning less than £1,200 per month backed Brexit, as well as 53% in Wales, 58% in Yorkshire, 54% in the North West and 58% in the North East.

70% of people who said their financial situation was a struggle backed Brexit, as did 59% of those identifying as working class.

Even 40% of ‘young working class Labour voters’ backed Brexit. The report asks:

“Could there be a re-alignment of party politics along the cleavages identified? Can the Labour Party remain a strong force in working class and low income communities?”

With numbers like these Paul Nuttall will be rubbing his hands…
