UK Elections | Voting Intention

Redfield & Wilton Strategies’ latest voting intention poll finds the Conservative Party leading by 19%. Altogether, little has changed since our previous voting intention poll conducted on the 26th of April. What few differences that do exist so far fall within the margin of error of our polls. The full numbers of our voting intention poll from this morning, with any changes from the 26th of April in parenthesis, are as follows:

            Conservative 50% (–)

            Labour 31% (-2)

            Liberal Democrat 7% (–)

            Scottish National Party 4% (–)

            Plaid Cymru 0% (–)

            Green Party 5% (+1)

            Other 3% (+2)

Likelihood to vote also only slightly changed, with 64% describing themselves as ‘certain to vote’ compared to 63% last time. Again, this metric shows a higher degree of enthusiasm among those who voted Conservative in December 2019.

In the coming days and weeks, the Government will be making key decisions with respects to the coronavirus pandemic. We will be keeping an eye out as to whether such decisions will influence the voting intention of the public.
