Bombshell poll puts Tories out of the race in York Outer

11 Jun 2024

A bombshell poll by the polling firm YouGov has suggested that the Conservatives could finish third in York Outer, with a close finish between Labour and the Liberal Democrats to win the seat. 

This follows Rishi Sunak’s disastrous campaign that started with him announcing the election in the pouring rain, standing beside the Titanic shipyard and most recently his insult to veterans with his D-Day snub.

Applying the YouGov poll to the Financial Times online election predictor suggests that the Conservatives are on course to lose more than half their 2019 support and fall behind both Labour and the Liberal Democrats in York Outer. 

Liberal Democrat Candidate for York Outer, Andrew Hollyer said:

“This confirms exactly what we have been hearing on the doorstep, the Conservatives are finished in York Outer. 

“Voters are crying out for meaningful change after this government has left the NHS to crumble, rivers full of raw sewage and hard working families struggling with the cost of living crisis.

“However, Labour’s selection of a London Councillor as their candidate, elected in the London Borough of Newham in just 2022, and who doesn’t live in York Outer, along with their local councillors forcing through a green bin tax and cuts to local libraries and community groups, rules them out as an option for many residents.

“With the Conservatives out of the race, and voters wanting a local champion who actually lives here and will stand up for them against the certain Labour Government in Westminster can afford to back me and the Liberal Democrats.”
