If the General Election were held today, who would you vote for?

There will no doubt be a collective sigh of relief from the Conservative Party, who appear to have in-part shaken devolved election blues and disappointing November polling.

The proposed nationalisation of British Steel also seems to have done little to dent the rising support of the Labour Party. Yet some Labour supporters may be disappointed not to have beaten the Conservative Party for the first time since data was collected in 2017.

Yet the story for the Government is mixed, with support for Liberal Democrats and Classical Liberals waning, following a trend of decline for the latter. The Libertarian Party also has little to celebrate, whose long-held third party position seems to be under threat.

Polling was also conducted in the South East and West. In the four constituencies polled, three have Conservative incumbents with Dorset represented by Labour Member of Parliament /u/Stalin1953. Yet it is the Conservatives who lead, with a joint Sunrise candidate beating strong campaigns from the Conservatives and Libertarians as a result of vote splitting last election.

Polling is provided by the Commons Speaker and may be considered canon.
