Poll Decline: Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer Warned Against Complacency as Conference Continues

Labour’s Lead Over Conservatives Narrows, Raises Concerns of Sir John Curtice

In Liverpool, where the Labour Party’s conference is unfolding, Sir Keir Starmer, the party’s leader, has received a cautionary message from esteemed pollster Professor Sir John Curtice. Despite maintaining a 17-point advantage over the Conservatives on average, recent polling data is cause for concern.

A YouGov poll conducted this week revealed that merely 22 percent of all voters believe that Labour possesses a clear plan for the future of Britain. Reflecting on this matter in the Independent, Prof. Curtice underscored the inability of Sir Keir to make a lasting impression on the electorate. Notably, according to the latest Ipsos poll, Sir Keir holds a net satisfaction rating of -14.

The esteemed professor of politics further highlighted the challenges faced by Labour – a lack of clarity, uncertainties regarding competence, and the relative unpopularity of their leader. While the Conservatives themselves face a significant dearth of public regard, Prof. Curtice suggests that if Prime Minister Sunak manages to implement a successful turnaround, Labour’s seemingly unassailable lead could suddenly prove brittle and susceptible to change.
