In recent days various polls are showing that more voters are supporting Labour as the gap is closing in fast against the Conservative Party.
According to Richard Leonard, the Scottish Labour leader, he has claimed there could be a swing of undecided voters that will support Labour as there is a “stark choice” between them and the Conservatives.
A poll published by Survation on Monday shows Labour has risen 3 points up to 33% while the Tories are rose by just on point to 42%.
The poll surveyed 49% of voters who backed Remain are now supporting Jeremy Corbyn. In another poll conducted by GMB, asked who their preferred prime minister is, the poll showed an increase in support for Corbyn.
However, in an Ipsos MORI survey for STV last week, showed support for Labour had fallen in Scotland to 16% of the vote.
Leonard said, “There’s a technical point about polls, they don’t record undecided or ‘don’t knows’, so there’s a potential skewing of results coming from polls which doesn’t reflect where people are.
“I’m still knocking on doors where people haven’t made their mind up yet.”
He added, “In the end, the choice is a stark one, the election of a Tory government for five more years or the election of a Labour one,” he said.
“There is no shortcut to the election of a Labour government through any other party.
“The SNP say that their ambition is to deprive the Tories of their majority, we don’t want to just deprive them of their majority.
“We want to form an alternative government that would change the way that our economy and our government works.
“We want to see radical change, and it’s possible with the election of a Labour government that could start this side of Christmas.”
