As the General election campaigns get underway now the polls start to gauge who will actually win!
A poll by Panelbase had a sample size of 1,046 people and was conducted between Nov. 6 and 8, It recorded Support for Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservatives was unchanged at 40% while the opposition Labour Party was up one percentage point at 30% after the first days of campaigning for Britain’s Dec. 12 election.
The pro-European Union Liberal Democrats had the support of 15%, up one point, and the Brexit Party was on 8%, down one point, according to the poll published last night.
Brits head to the polls on Dec. 12 for a snap election which Prime Minister Boris Johnson called to end the Brexit saga, with polls showing the governing Conservatives ahead of Labour but by varying margins.
Meanwhile Scottish Nationalists have said they will seek “a progressive alliance” with the opposition Labour Party if an election next month results in no one winning an overall majority, but the party will want a second independence vote in return, its leader Nicola Sturgeon said yesterday.
“If there’s a hung parliament … SNP MPs will seek to form a progressive alliance to lock the Tories out of government,” Sturgeon said at the start of the SNP campaign in Edinburgh.
“The SNP is not going to be giving support to parties that do not recognise the central principle of the right of the people of Scotland to choose their own future,” she added.
