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.

  1. please please please vote labour the only thing they have on labour is he talks to the people who are bombed by more powerful people well good on him . this ex labour mp on leaving the first thing he said is he talks to hesberla [sorry for my spelling ] but who cares if it saves one kid from a people who have all the money.

  2. Gift him the seat by voting Labour, you mean Brian.

    He can only be ousted if all the opposition voters vote for the same party; and the opposition party that’s way ahead of the others (in his constituency) is LibDems.

    In many other marginal constituencies it’s Labour – and there, I’d encourage LibDems to support Labour, as at least Labour will give us a People’s Vote.

  3. The worst result is Johnson returning to No10,I believe he mirrors Trump .If you want to Remain in the EU, if you want a welfare state and a secure NHS, vote tactically. It may result in a hung parliament with Labour depending on The Liberal Democrats, the Greens ,Plaid cymru and the SNP for support, but that must be better than Johnson and his ‘Britain in Chains’ colleagues in power.We can then work in a progressive pact for equality ,justice,a green deal,within the EU.
