Boris Johnson Goes Down

It hasn't been a good week for the Conservatives, pollwise.  All major recent polls are showing their lead shrinking.

Comparing each pollster's current (between 29/11 and 22/11) and previous most recent poll.

  • Panel Base - Conservative lead down 2 points.

  • Kantar - Conservative lead down 8 points.
  • ICM - Conservative lead down 3 points.
  • Survation - Conservative lead down 3 points.
  • Deltapoll - Conservative lead down 2 points.
All from here.
