Starmer Still Trails Boris as Public’s Preferred PM, Tories Still Preferred Party

For those of you waiting for the latest Survation, Tories will be pleased in the circumstances to add another 3 points to their lead, giving them an 8 point margin over Labour. Boris will be pleased to see he has 7 point margin over Starmer in the “Who Would Make the Best Prime Minister” stakes, less pleased that his public approval rating is neutral whereas Starmer’s is a healthy plus 9. The public is warming to Starmer slightly, still not keen on his party though. Starmer’s left-wing enemies are still demanding to know when the 20-point lead Tony Blair forecast will appear…

Post-Cummingsgate Polling Round-Up

New polling from Survation, collected from the day the Dominic Cummings story broke until today, shows the Tory vote share down by two points since their last poll, albeit still two points higher than they achieved in the 2019 General Election. In 2019, Labour lost badly with 32% of the vote, today Survation puts them just one point higher, at 33%. Whilst a clear majority of the public think that Cummings should resign, it doesn’t seem to be having as big an impact on the polls as many pundits had thought…yet.

UPDATE: A new YouGov poll this evening shows a much more drastic swing away from the Tories, with a poll lead collapse from 15% to 6% being noted asthe biggest drop in a poll lead in a decade” – even greater than Theresa May’s during the 2017 election.

Tory Lead Squeezed Down to Six Points

The latest Survation poll has the Labour Party creeping up, gaining three points in one week to 29%, and squeezing the Tory lead down to six points, with the party resting on 35%.

CCHQ will be watching closely to see if this trend continues. Survation was the most accurate pollster in 2017…

Boris More Trusted on NHS than Corybn

A Survation poll for the Daily Mail shows Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is less trusted on the NHS than Boris. 35% think Boris would be ‘best’ on the issue of the NHS, compared to 34% for Corbyn. The same poll also shows Labour are starting on 26% compared to 34% for the Tories, with the LibDems and Brexit Party on 19% and 12% respectively. If Corbyn can’t beat Boris on the NHS his party might be the one facing a winter crisis…

Latest Poll Confirms Public Want Early election

More Labour voters want an early election than Tories. Yet Corbyn won’t give them one…

The public know the recall of parliament won’t solve anything.

Survation did the polling yesterday. The public are not fooled by all the showboating by politicians…

Sajid is the Top Choice of Tory Councillors

Survation have done something interesting, they have polled 862 Tory councillors on their preference for the next Tory leader. Using a run-off single transferable vote method they looked into who would win. First preferences gave a close lead for Sajid Javid of 150 to 142.

After transferring votes Sajid sucks up the majority of third-placed Hunt’s votes and wins decisively. This is an interesting exercise that doesn’t exactly mirror the actual Tory election process which has MPs select two candidates to put before the wider Tory membership. What it does show is that in an open field the race would likely be between Johnson & Javid. The survey reinforces the findings of the ConservativeHome surveys that it should be a two-horse race. Whether Tory MPs agree is another matter…

Watch Survation’s explainer video here.
