Four in ten voters are backing Boris Johnson in the general election, a Good Morning Britain poll has shown.

The Conservatives have a 14 point lead over the opposition Labour Party ahead of a December 12 election, the Survation poll showed on Monday. 

It indicated support for the Conservatives is on 42 percent, compared to 28 percent for Labour, which has faced criticisms over its failure to tack anti-Semitism within its own ranks.

Meanwhile the pro-European Union Liberal Democrats were on 13 percent and the Brexit Party was on five percent.   

Quizzed on whether GMB presenters Piers Morgan or Susanna Reid would make the best Prime Minister, Susanna beat Piers with 39 percent of the vote to 35 percent.

Piers may have been the more popular among Conservative voters but Susanna was much more popular with both Labour and Lib Dem-minded voters. 

People said she was a broad-minded and honest person who listened to the opinions of others. 

The Survation/Good Morning Britain polling in 2017 also correctly indicated a hung Parliament in the final poll.

Brexit is at the forefront of most voters’ minds, although Labour voters saw it as far less important than the NHS with only 15 percent saying it was the key issue. 

The overall results showed Brexit was the key topic for 34 percent of people polled, the NHS 14 percent and Economy four percent.

 But there were some major distinctions along Party lines:

  • Of current Conservative voters polled, 54 percent said Brexit, seven percent said NHS and seven percent said the economy was the key issue for them.
  • Brexit was the key issue for 15 percent of Labour voters, 26 percent said the NHS and four percent said the economy.
  • Lib Dems 60 percent Brexit, 12 percent NHS and three percent economy respectively.

Despite this result, 61 percent of current Labour voters believed their Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, was the best person for the job; 72 percent of Lib Dem voters were convinced Jo Swinson would make the best PM and 94 percent of Tories polled backed Johnson.

On the question of which Party has had the best campaign so far, the Tories again came out on top with 26 percent compared to 14 percent Labour and 10 percent Lib Dem. 

One percent said the Brexit Party, one percent SNP and 46 percent answered ‘Don’t know’.
