General election: Tactical voting could oust Brexiteer Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab could be dumped out of the House of Commons through tactical voting, according to new polling.

Survation have conducted a poll that shows the anti-Brexit Liberal Democrats have surged in Raab’s seat of Esher and Walton, and could steal the seat if anti-Tory voters coalesce around their candidate.


The Survation poll shows Raab ahead on 45% of the vote – a fall on 14% on the last election. The Lib Dems are then in second with 36% (a surge of 19%), with Labour on 11% and the Greens on 3%.

Therefore, if the majority of Labour and Green voters ditch their traditional party loyalties and cast their ballot for the Lib Dems, they could hand a P45 to one of the leading figures in Boris Johnson’s government.

Many voters will understandably be reticent about breaking a lifetime of voting habits, but I think we can all agree that the reward would be huge.
