Labour maintains lead over Conservatives

In Survation’s latest political polling, conducted 22 – 26 April 2022, Labour remains ahead in general election voting intention, on 42%, while the Conservatives trail on 33%.



Labour’s advantage is reflected in who people think would make the Best Prime Minister. Leader of the opposition Keir Starmer leads incumbent Boris Johnson 40% to 33%, while 27% are uncertain.



With local elections in the first week of May across many parts of England, we asked people in those areas how they would vote. Labour leads the intended voting figures on 47% compared to 34% for the Conservatives. While the last general election was a comprehensive Conservative win, in the last local elections in these areas Labour were already most successful overall. However, there is an increase still in their position, similar to the national picture.




Survation conducted online interviews of 2587 adults in the UK, 22–26 April 2022, on behalf of Good Morning Britain. Tables are here.
