Labour ‘will LOSE election despite London gains as Midlands and North turn AGAINST Corbyn’
By comparison, the former Labour leader Ed Miliband — who led the party to defeat in 2015 — was ahead in some polls in the run-up to the last general election.
Ben Page, chief executive of the polling organisation, said that the national picture was less important than the minority of seats which had a chance of changing hands.
In 2015, for example, only 17 per cent of seats got a new MP.
He said: “It’s all about those 100 or so seats which could change hands, it doesn’t matter how the Tories do in Chelsea or Labour does in South Shields.”
