British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party has seen its lead narrow to 10 points over the opposition Labour Party, according to a poll by Panelbase released yesterday- the first time the lead has dropped in one of its recent surveys.
The Conservatives were on 42%, down one point from the pollster’s survey last week, with Labour on 32%, up 2 points.
The Liberal Democrats were on 14%, down one point, and the Brexit Party was down two points to 3%.
The poll was taken also after the live TV debate.
We the Euro Weekly News asked local politics follower Paul Gregory of Torreblanca based on the Costa Del Sol Spain his views on the recent release ” I don’t really see why people follow these polls so seriously – what really grinds with me is that firstly they are often wrong and they don’t report where they took the survey from. Yes I know they say they go for a broad audience but do they? – they also are only polls of taken on average of 2,000 surveyed” he said.
Paul went onto say ” Sometimes I really wonder I really do when I see some of the poll results – some of them are quite pathetic – like walking into Anfield and asking what football team you support!” Paul snorted.
He then went to say ” You only have to follow the politics through the news and reactions of MP’s to gauge what’s going on, you don’t need some bloody poll which differs from another poll to convince you who’s leading! – Boris is going to clearly win the election my only concern is that he doesn’t win a majority at present”
” I don’t need a poll to tell me that!”
