The latest general election poll, carried out by YouGov for The Times, gives the Tories a 14-point lead over the Labour Party. The data collected from November 11-12, is the first time Boris Johnson’s party has achieved more than 40 percent of voting intention in a YouGov poll since the Brexit Party launched. Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party came in second, with 28 percent of respondents indicating that they would vote Labour in next month’s election.
Yesterday Nigel Farage announced that he would not be standing any of his Brexit Party candidates in seats won by the Tories in the 2017 general election.
But Brexit Party candidates will still stand in Labour marginals, seats Mr Johnson needs to win in order to secure a parliamentary majority.
