From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

At various dates in the run up to the next United Kingdom general election, various organisations are expected to carry out opinion polling to gauge the opinions that voters hold towards political leaders. Results of such polls are displayed in this article. Most of the polling companies listed are members of the British Polling Council (BPC) and abide by its disclosure rules.

The date range for these opinion polls is from the previous general election, held on 8 June 2017, to the present day. Under the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011, the next general election was scheduled to be held no later than 5 May 2022,[1],and it was accelerated from that timetable by the Early Parliamentary General Election Act 2019.
