According to the latest Westminster voting intentions poll from YouGov, the Tories are making a strong comeback to the top!


In a surprise rise in popularity, the Conservative Party has increased from 20% last week to 22% this week and that puts them on par with The Brexit Party at the top of the poll.

And most will put this down to the imminent change of the leadership of the Tory party and Prime Minister.

The full results are as follows:

The Brexit Party and the Conservative Party are in joint first place with 22%.

Labour is next unchanged with 20% followed by the Lib Dems dropping two percent and now on 19%.

The Greens have increased from nine percent last week to come in with double figures on ten percent.

The poll took place over the 24th and 25th of June and there were 2,059 respondents.

This will probably be seen as a result of an imminent new leader of the Tories and fuel support for Boris Johnson, who is currently the favourite to take over from Theresa May.

It will also be a massive boost for Brexiteers, as it shows that the Brexit Party has remained strong and, that now the Tories look like taking on a hard line Brexiteer at the helm, their party's fortunes are quickly improving.

And the Sun reports on another YouGov poll of 1,600 people that shows that, while 43% of respondents want to remain in the EU, 28% want to leave with no deal, 13% want to leave with May's Withdrawal Agreement surrender treaty and 16% want some form of soft Brexit.

So that's 57% for leave and 43% for Remain.

Now before the Remainers get in a huff and say that Leavers don't know what sort of leave they want, so we'd better stay in the EU. I would point out that we've never conducted a similar exercise with the Remainer vote.

What we need to do is poll the Remainers on whether they want the Guy Verhofstadt model of 'all in' – you know, the Full Monty of the eurozone, the Schengen area, the EU army, EU taxes etc etc.

Or do they want a very soft Remain of a sort of loose affiliation or maybe exactly the same as when we voted to leave in June 2016? – Which by the way is no longer actually an option.

You get the idea. I reckon we'd have as large a spread in answers from that sort of poll as we do for the traditional splitting of the Leave vote.
