YouGov Poll Gives Labour 33 Point Lead Over Conservative Party

UK

A new YouGov poll has shown a dramatic collapse of support for the Conservative government of UK Prime Minister Liz Truss.

  • YouGov: LAB: 54% (+9) CON: 21% (-7) LDEM: 7% (-2) GRN: 6% (-1)
  • The YouGov poll is based upon survey data collected between 28-29 September during the fallout from Chancellor of the Exchequer Kwasi Kwarteng's fiscal event of Friday last week.
  • The polling data is likely to pile more pressure on Truss to commit to a reversal of her regime of tax cuts.
  • Kwarteng defended his policies earlier today but that position looking ever more difficult to sustain: "We're sticking to the growth plan and we're going to help people with energy bills."
  • The YouGov poll has been support by similar, albeit less pronounced, surges towards Labour in polls from Redfield & Wilton and Survation.
