Nandy Wins Hearts in Focus Group of Former Labour Voters

Lisa Nandy had a good day yesterday, with Jess Phillips dropping out and securing the GMB’s nomination (putting her just one endorsement away from a place on the final ballot). Focus grouping by Channel 4, however, will have put a final spring in her step. 

Whilst she was clearly an unknown—in comparison to Jess Phillips and Emily Thornberry—clips of her feisty Andrew Neil interview went down well with the group of former Labour voters in Birmingham Northfield who switched to the Tories in December. Channel 4 previously ran the focus group in early December and predicted the flipping of the seat…
