Tory fightback sees Sunak now stuck on the heels of Starmer for best PM amongst voters | Politics | News


The race for public opinion on who the voters imagine will probably be one of the best Prime Minister is now neck and neck with Rishi Sunak narrowing the gap to 5 points against Sir Keir Starmer. In response to the Techne UK fortnightly best PM tacker poll, Mr Sunak is now on 37 percent (down one) while Starmer is on 42 percent (down two).

The outcomes are a serious boost for the Tories who, as a celebration, are stuck t 28 percent 17 points behind Labour within the predominant weekly tracker poll.

The closeness of one of the best Prime Minister poll suggests that they may still pull off a shock victory in a presidential-style election and that Starmer should still be a weakness for the Labour Party.

The survey of 1,624 voters over December 21 and 22, showed that Mr Sunak is already more popular with voters aged over 55 with a forty five percent to 38 percent lead within the 56-to64-year-old category and a 42 percent to 39 percent in 65 and older.

But Sir Keir is a good distance ahead in younger voters scoring 44 percent to 29 percent amongst 18-to-34-year-olds and 49 percent to 32 percent amongst 35-to-44-year-olds.

Claims by some critics that Mr Sunak shouldn’t be sufficiently strong enough of Brexit doesn’t affect his standing amongst Leave supporters preferring him by 58 percent to 25 percent.

Unsurprisingly, Sir Keir wins with Remainer by 56 percent to 33 percent.

Michela Morizzo, chief executive of Techne UK, warned that each leaders ought to be concerned by falling numbers within the poll and pointed to a rise in support for Reform UK within the predominant party tracker poll to 7 percent as an indication of voter dissatisfaction.

She said: “Our Techne tracker poll today shows Rishi Sunak and the Conservatives closing the gap barely by one point, now giving Labour a 17 point lead.

“Whilst still a dominant lead for Sir Keir Starmer’s Party the general feeling is that each major parties are struggling to keep up interest particularly given the terrible cost of living and energy worries all hard-working Britons are facing.

“This reduced interest is especially noticeable with improved support for the smaller parties especially Reform U.K. who this week post their highest poll return with 7 percent of national vote share.”
