Tories face complete wipeout in Wales, losing every single seat according to new poll

The Conservative party face a complete wipeout in Wales at the next General Election, losing every single seat they hold at the moment, according to a new poll.

The JL Partners MRP poll for the Sunday Times has the Tories losing all 14 seats in Wales and taking them back to the complete wipeout they faced at the height of New Labour at the 1997 and 2001 general elections.

That would involve losing new seats they picked up at the last election, such as Rob Roberts’ Delyn and Virginia Crosbie’s Ynys Môn, as well as some they have held for over a decade, including David TC Davies’ Monmouth and Alun Cairns’ Vale of Glamorgan.

The poll has the Labour party winning every single seat in Wales apart from the four now held by Plaid Cymru. The Liberal Democrats would win back Brecon and Radnorshire, the poll projects.

The result would be quite a turnaround for the Conservatives in Wales after they hit a high watermark of 14 seats at the 2019 General Election, winning an additional six seats in Wales to bring their total to 14.

They would also lose all six of their seats in Scotland, the poll projects.

The polls wider results has Tory support dropping to 2005 levels and half the cabinet, including Prime Minister Boris Johnson, losing their seats.

The Conservatives would win 201 seats overall, with Keir Starmer’s Labour party on 352 – a majority on 14.

‘Negative’

The JL Partners poll of 4,500 people and the seat projection was conducted by James Johnson, Theresa May’s former pollster.

James Johnson told the Sunday Times: “On these numbers, the Conservatives face electoral wipeout. Though Keir Starmer’s ratings remain negative, the sharp difference in comparison to Boris Johnson’s ratings mean Labour are benefitting by default.

“Though it is possible to see the gap narrowing in an actual election contest, and significant brand problems for Labour persevere, it is becoming less and less likely to see a situation in which the Conservatives win a majority under Boris Johnson. ‘Partygate’ has been damaging and has all the signs of being long-lasting.

“The prime minister no longer leads on the ‘must-have’ attributes that won him the 2019 election: strength, the ability to get things done, and a sense he was an authentic politician.”

The Conservachovs took the Putin silver, and they display the same attitude of that leader to our country, we see it every day from the incoming attacks from the right wing press denigrating our government and threatening to abolish our devolution democracy while we ‘look the other way’. They are not fit represent us they, they are abusers and misusers of power and only look after their own narrow interests and cronies while leaving the less fortunate destitute, they run down our health services and our schools while educating their own children in private schools and using private health insurance… Read more »

If you want to be proud and independent, stop taking money from ‘Westmiskow’ and then moaning about your keepers… A vote for Plaid isn’t a vote for Wales; it’s a vote for Plaid. The same ‘party for wales’ that wants to take the Welsh begging bowl back to Europe when the people of Wales voted out.

We still have two years before another GE and the Tories will undoubtedly replace Johnson before then and claim themselves a new party. It’s their old trick and sadly people still fall for it. So we are not out of the woods yet. Though it would be good to see Wales Tory free.

Its not that I’m disagreeing with you, but who would could they replace Johnson with? My hope is that what the Tories went through in the mid1990s will be repeated in the 2020s in the sense that they have been in power for two long & voters would had enough of them. I think Labour were destined to win in ’97 even if John Smith was still alive. Another factor is that the next election will less likely be about Brexit, and this time the Tories will not be going against Jeremy Corbyn who was off-putting to many voters. Starmer… Read more »

The Welsh Tories. A contradiction in terms,do nothing to support Wales. Always stating the English point of view. Even English who have chosen to live here full time, cannot find this acceptable?

Attack Wales and its elected government daily, call it assembly or administration as an insult, this is eventually what happens.

Finally the Welsh people now see the Tories in Wales for what they really are. Traitors who exist solely to demean Wales at any opportunity on behalf of their fascist Whitehall masters in England, whose hostile undemocratic agenda now is to remove our Senedd Cymru by stealth, then further demote Wales from a proud Celtic nation & people to a dependent sweatshop economy appendage with resources ripe for the picking.

I wonder , how many ex Tory MP’s will be given jobs by the rich billionaire Russians, that funded the party machine, paid for election campaigns and put them where they are today. I suppose some will just ask for permanent jobs with the many firms they have consultancies with.

“Tories face complete wipeout in Wales “

Lets bl##dy hope so! They serve no one other than themselves and Tory HQ. Certainly not their constituents. I trust Andrew RT and similar puppets are also included.
