Support for Labour continues to rise

The latest Survation poll shows Labour now have a 7pp lead over the Conservatives. This is significant as Survation were the polling company who had the most accurate prediction at the 2017 General Election.

Their March poll shows Labour on 44% and the Tories on 37%

Once the overall figure is broken down by age the lead is more impressive. Among 18-24 year olds Labour has a 40pp lead. Among the 25-54 year olds those who would vote Labour are over 50% at 50.2% while only 28% support the Tories.

Obviously one key issue we now face is turnout since the younger you are the less likely you are to vote. If we could increase the turnout among those aged 18-24 which in 2017 stood at just below 60% to the equal of the turnout for those aged 60-69 which in 2017 was 77%, we will have a Labour government led by Jeremy Corbyn seeking to implement the most radical manifesto since 1945.

That is something worth working hard for.
