Tory Voters Want to Prioritise Cutting Energy Bills, Labour Voters Don’t

New polling by YouGov on behalf of the Global Warming Policy Forum has found Tory voters prioritise cutting energy bills far more than Labour voters do. Reflecting the new electoral coalition the Conservative Party enjoys, working-class C2DE voters favour cutting bills over stronger climate change targets. A total mirror image to middle-class ABC1 voters…

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the pattern is also true with Leave and Remain voters…

If the Government is wondering what policy agenda will unite its electoral coalition, cutting energy bills with market mechanisms is a pretty safe bet…

New Tory Voters Say Labour Left Them

New polling from YouGov has dug down into the 2019 Lab-Con switchers to find out why they gifted Boris his 80 seat majority; finding the issue of Brexit was an overwhelming driving factor, with 49% of that group citing Labour’s incoherent policy as the main reason for switching – compared to 27% who said Corbyn’s leadership and 10% for Labour’s policies. The Tories still have a big ideological battle to be fought and won at the next election…

The best news for Boris is his popularity with Labour switchers, with 81% of them having a favourable view of him compared to just 5% with Corbyn.

The long term disaster for Labour can be seen in how these switchers perceive their former party, with 74% saying the party no longer represents them, compared to 46% who conversely say the Tories didn’t use to represent them but now does. Do Rebecca Long-Bailey or Keir Starmer really believe they are the ones to turn these fortunes around?…

Long-Bailey Slips Ahead in Latest Labour Leader Poll

Surprising new polling by Survation for LabourList has shown that Rebecca Long-Bailey is ahead of favourite Keir Starmer with the membership, with the other contenders trailing behind. In a run off vote, RLB squeaks through with 51% to Starmer’s 49%. Guido wonders how long it would take Starmer in this situation to call for a second vote…

The poll surveyed 3,835 Labour members between 8 and 13 January. While all the talk of her being the ‘Corbyn candidate’ has likely put off the country, it has endeared her to the loony Labour membership…

Public Mark Corbyn 0/10

Whilst it was obvious what the public rated Jeremy Corbyn on 12th, in light of successive Labour leadership candidates being asked to rank their party leader, YouGov have polled the public to see just how out of touch the prospective LOTOs are. For the first time in her life, Lady Nugee has her finger on the pulse…

To recap, Long-Bailey gave the supreme leader 10/10; Clive Lewis and Rosena Allin-Khan 6/10; Thornberry 0/10.

Astonishingly, all of them are out of touch with the vast majority of Labour voters, with 21% giving their leader zero, and the rest equally split across the rest of the board. Presumably the 1% of Tory voters who gave Corbyn 7/10 are thanking him for their perfect election result…

61% of Canadians Back Harry to become Governor General

Harry and Megan may not be the most popular people this side of the Atlantic at the moment, but the sixth in line to the throne prince can take solace in his popularity in his new home-from-home, Canada.

A recent poll found that 61% of Canadians want the Duke to become their new Governor-General. Interestingly, younger Canadians, in particular, are more enthusiastic than older generations. What is it about Canadians that draws them to superficial, woke, quasi-celebrity political figures?

UPDATE: Michael Fabricant has written to the Queen suggesting she gives the Canadian people what they want. Over to you, your Maj…

Public say Corbyn a Bigger ‘Villain’ than Epstein

Corbyn’s astounding and unprecedented levels of unpopularity for a Labour leader have long been commented upon, but a new poll from Opinium helps contextualise just how poorly Corbyn is perceived by the public; being ranked by 29% as the ‘villain’ of 2019 – 1% higher than disgraced – now dead – paedophile Jeffrey Epstein. He’s always said he’s in a battle with billionaires…

Corbyn can find some solace in Donald Trump’s easy victory in the villainy poll, taking 39% of the vote. Is Corbyn getting used to losing by double-digit losses yet?…

Boris, on the other hand, received 19% in the reciprocal ‘hero of 2019’ poll, with David Attenborough winning on 35% to Greta Thunberg’s second place of 21%. Will the elderly ever stop stealing Greta’s dreams…
