Boris Johnson’s Government has retained a consistent polling lead since taking power in 2019. Support has surged following one of the most marked economic declines and highest death rates amid the Covid pandemic. But Mr Johnson may be losing his shine amongst the British electorate if one poll is to be believed.
Over the last year, Westminster voting intention has increasingly skewed towards the Conservatives.
Their polling supremacy has come as Labour divides under Keir Starmer, and the Government enjoys a “vaccine bounce”.
The latest data from Politico’s “Poll of Polls” shows Labour is making a bounce of its own.
It’s September 2021 poll shows the Conservatives remain on top with 40 percent of the vote.
In another poll released today, the organisation put the Conservatives in the lead at 38 percent.
They had lost one point, while Labour had managed to gain three points, gathering 34 percent in second place.
But some of those watching the to-and-fro will have noticed Labour has a long way to go.
The latest polling puts the Conservatives in front of Labour for the party’s 148th consecutive week.
