- ComRes’ first voting intention poll with Boris Johnson as Prime Minister shows Conservatives in the lead with 28% of the vote, seeing their lead ahead of the Brexit Party widen to 12 percentage points (28% vs 16% respectively).
- Amongst 2016 Leave voters, the Conservatives now lead the polls with 42% of the vote. Conversely, amongst 2016 Remain voters, Labour leads with 38% of the vote.
- The Liberal Democrats’ share of the vote continues to increase by 2 percentage points since earlier in July 2019.
- If the parties were to achieve these vote shares at a General Election it would result in Conservatives being the largest party but 48 seats short of a majority (Con 278, Lab 255, LD 54, SNP 36, Brex 5, PC 3, Grn 1 source: www.electoralcalculus.co.uk)
