A poll released on January 15 from Opinium Research sees the Conservatives embattled by a week of scandal. Boris Johnson admitted on Wednesday he attended a Downing Street party during the UK’s first Covid lockdown, but stressed he thought it was a “work event”.
In the poll on voting intention, carried out from January 12 to January 14, Labour is out ahead at 41 percent, after a rise of two points.
The Tories are now polling at 31 percent, a three point plunge from the last poll on January 5 and January 7.
The poll surveyed 1271 likely voters, and also found the Liberal Democrats polled at nine percent, after a two point drop, with the Green Party at six percent, after a one point rise.
Opinium said: “The latest poll is not just the largest Labour lead we have recorded this parliament, but the largest Labour lead in any Opinium Research poll since October 2013.”
