Conservatives recover in polls as latest figures released

The Conservatives have retaken the lead over Labour in a key poll, as they look to recover from a difficult month that saw the party slip behind Labour in several polls for the first time in months.

The latest voting intention poll Redfield & Wilton Strategies shows the Conservatives (38%) taking a 2% lead over Labour (36%), after being tied last week.

Despite the Conservatives’ improvement in the polls, Redfield & Wilton Strategies revealed Boris Johnson’s net approval rating dropping from -8% to -12%, a four-point decrease on last week’s figures and Boris Johnson’s second-lowest ever approval ratings in the same study.

Sir Keir Starmer approval ratings also dropped by six points, a figure that will likely cause the Labour leader concern, as he looks to capitalise on a difficult few weeks for the Conservatives.
