Boris Johnson’s Conservatives achieved a landslide victory in the general election of December 2019, gaining 365 seats with 42.4 percent of the votes. There have been 3 by-elections since then, as well as a flurry of local elections, a global epidemic, and a slew of UK poll tracker.
I have incorporated every poll conducted so far this year into our poll tracker, which tracks each major party’s anticipated voter share.
Who is the front-runner in the polls?
Boris Johnson has had a terrific year so far, whereas Keir Starmer has had a difficult one. Although the two or more parties being close to par at the begin of the year, the average puts Mr Johnson about ten points ahead. The successful vaccine deployment has been cited by several experts as a crucial factor in the relatively consistent lead.
How the works of tracker?
The tracker compiles countrywide voter intent polls provided by British polling council members.
Our methodology constantly weights those polls based on the dates they were conducted in the field, surveying people, so the most recent polls matter a lot more than the oldest. It also takes into account whatever polling organisation conducted the UK poll tracker, as each has a slightly distinct method of conducting polls.
Our tracker now includes a 95% standard deviation, so viewers can see not only the topline estimates, but also the range of values within which we believe each party’s genuine amount of support lies.
