Opinion polling for the next United Kingdom general election

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

In the run up to the next United Kingdom general election, various organisations are expected to carry out opinion polling to gauge voting intention. 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. Opinion polling about attitudes to the leaders of various political parties can be found in a separate article.

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 is scheduled to be held no later than 5 May 2022.[1]

Most opinion polls cover only Great Britain, excluding Northern Ireland as its 18 seats are contested by a different set of political parties.

Graphical summaries[edit]

The graph shows polls conducted for the next UK General Election, including polls released by 10 July 2018. The trendline is based on the average of the last 10 polls.
  Conservative
  Labour
  Liberal Democrats
  SNP
  UKIP
  Greens

National poll results[edit]

Poll results are listed in the table below in reverse chronological order.[2] Most pollsters only include responses from within Great Britain, excluding Northern Ireland; however, some, such as Survation, do include Northern Ireland. The table below indicates whether a poll is Great Britain (GB)-only or United Kingdom (UK)-wide. The highest percentage figure in each polling survey is displayed in bold, and the background shaded in the leading party's colour. The 'party lead' column shows the percentage-point difference between the two parties with the highest figures. In the instance of a tie, no figure is shaded but both are displayed in bold.

The parties with the largest numbers of votes in the 2017 general election are listed here. Other parties are included in the "Other" column.

Preferred Prime Minister polling[edit]

Some opinion pollsters ask voters which party leader they think would make the best Prime Minister – Theresa May (Conservative Party) or Jeremy Corbyn (Labour Party). The questions differ slightly from pollster to pollster:

  • Opinium: "Which, if any, of the following people do you think would be the best Prime Minister?"
  • BMG Research: "If you had to choose between the two, who would you prefer to see as the next Prime Minister?"
  • YouGov / Survation: "Which of the following do you think would make the best Prime Minister?"
  • Ipsos MORI: "Who do you think would make the most capable Prime Minister, the Conservatives’ Theresa May, or Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn?"
  • ICM: "Putting aside which party you support, and only thinking about your impressions of them as leaders, which one of the following do you think would make the best Prime Minister for Britain?"
