The polls: Labour nudges still closer to the Tories

BBC poll of polls as of 4th June

The enormous gap in the polls at the start of the election, along with the predictions of a wipe out for Labour, has gone. The more exposure Labour gets the better its position. When the public hears directly from Labour what it thinks and what is plans are, rather than getting its views from the political commentariat, its position improves.

The BBC website reported

Clearly, the discrepancies between the polling companies are very large. And that obviously makes it hard to draw firm conclusions.

Survation’s poll has the narrowest gap of any poll so far during the campaign. It’s the only company that has not changed its methodology since 2015. But up to now they’ve not been especially favourable to Labour.

Their poll was conducted today, after last night’s Question Time special, where Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn faced questions from a live audience. And they found that more people who watched the programme said it made them more likely to vote Labour than Conservative. (Emphasis added)

Help is still needed for Labour’s effort including on 8th June. If you have any time to help in the Brentford and Isleworth constituency then please contact the organiser Jack Price at the Labour Party Office: 020 8995 7289, or call in at 367 Chiswick High Rd, London, W4 4AG. The seat is marginal but Labour is putting in a great effort and there is every reason to think that Ruth Cadbury can hold on to the seat – but that won’t happen by itself.
