Labour has widened its lead in the capital to 17 points, gaining eight points apparently at the expense of the Lib Dems and other smaller parties according to a new poll by YouGov.
The poll, commissioned by Queen Mary University and revealed by the Evening Standard, shows Labour ahead on 47% – up eight points from the start of November, leaving the Tories trailing on 30%.
Gains for Labour appear to have come at the expense of Jo Swinson’s pro-Remain party, which has lost four points in the past month. The Lib Dems are now polling at 15% in London.
The Green Party also appear to have taken a hit in the recent poll. Sian Berry’s party is down one point since the beginning of November to just 4%.
Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party have seen a similar squeeze on their vote in the capital, having fallen three points to just 3%.
While the polling shows an increase for Labour, the 17-point lead still means the party is polling below the 54.5% vote share it secured in London in the 2017 general election.
The YouGov poll for Queen Mary University London surveyed 1,019 respondents, online between November 28th and December 2nd.
