UK: Voting intention – 3rd December 2020
Labour return to the lead with 2 points, suggesting neither party able to break into a strong lead for long
Labour are back in the lead, albeit with a very marginal 2 point lead over the Conservative’s, on 40% to the Tories 38%. This backs up the general picture we have been seeing for the past couple of months of a neck-and-neck race between the two major parties, with neither being able to develop a clear lead.
Despite voting intention moving in Labour’s direction, leaders approval seems to be continuing the other way. For the 2nd week in a row, Johnson’s net approval seems to be up slightly, with Starmer’s having dropped down a touch, dropping below the PM in raw approval while remaining ahead on net approval.
This week, 36% approve of the job Boris Johnson is doing as prime Minister, while 44% disapprove. This puts his net approval at -8, up from -12 two weeks ago, and -14 a month ago.
