The polling should add to the pressure on Number 10
The latest fortnightly Opinium poll is out and the message from those sampled is clear – they want the PM out and they want him to go straight away.
The voting numbers are relatively unchanged – LAB: 36% (-1) CON: 33% (-1) LDM: 11% (-1) GRN: 8% (+1) SNP: 4% (=).
The firm’s approval ratings have
Johnson net MINUS 29% Starmer net MINUS 6% So the LAB leader is 23 points ahead.
To put this into context in the final poll from the firm before GE2019 Corbyn was on a net minus 30%. So Johnson is doing just 1% better.
