A poll released by one of the few companies to accurately predict the 2017 General Election, Survation, has given Labour a staggering six point lead against the Conservatives. In an election match up, Survation put Labour on 44%, with the Tories lagging behind on 38%.
Despite Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour opening up a wider lead against the Conservatives, according to Electoral Calculus – this would still put Labour five seats short of an overall majority, although they would be the largest party by a considerable margin.
The really interesting thing about this Survation poll and the Electoral Calculus prediction based off the results are the host of senior Conservatives who would lose their seats at the next election. Cabinet Ministers, potential leadership contenders and old stalwarts of the party are now all facing imminent defeat to Labour in their constituencies. Home Secretary Amber Rudd would lose her wafer-thin majority, while top Tories such as Stephen Crabb, Justine Greening, Nicky Morgan, Anna Soubry and former DWP axe-man Iain Duncan Smith would all suffer defeat at the hands of Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party if an election were held tomorrow. If Labour were to continue their momentum in the coming months and edge closer to 50% in the polls, the likes of Boris Johnson could also be in Corbyn’s sights come election time.
The Tories could be facing annihilation at the next election – with their top ranks absolutely decimated. See for yourself.
