Two and a half weeks before the General election in the UK, the Conservative Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, have reached according to a survey, the highest level since the election in 2017. After the on Saturday published survey by the opinion research Institute Opinium for the newspaper "Observer" to put the Tories over the last week, three points to 47 percent.
The opposition Labour party, Jeremy Corbyn remains at 28 percent. The pro-European liberal Democrats will lose two points and come to 12 percent. The Brexit-party slips three points to 3 percent.
From the loss of Brexit-party Conservatives, such as Jack Tadman of Opinium said benefit. However, many voters are undecided, which could diminish the advantage of the Tories.
The lower house had approved in October, Johnson's request, the election to the 12. December is preferable. The Labour party gave up their resistance to it, after your assessment, the risk of unfair exit of the UK from the EU by the re-displacement of the Leaving date on the 31. January is not given.
Johnson, who does not have a majority in the lower house and the members in a state of Denial accused, had proposed the re-election, and argued that only through the Brexit-cul-de-SAC could be cancelled seats after majority voting.
The percentage number says something about the strength of the parties, but not necessarily a majority in the lower house. Because in the 650 constituencies, which correspond to the number of mandates in the lower house, will be awarded the seats to the majority the right to vote. This means that the seats are not distributed according to the percentage the parties (proportional representation), but according to the principle: Whoever brings in the constituency, the majority, gets the seat.
