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.
