Labour has opened up its biggest opinion poll lead over the Tories since Boris Johnson became Prime Minister, according to a new survey.  

A poll published by Survation gives Sir Keir Starmer‘s party a three point advantage over Mr Johnson and the Conservatives.

The latest survey is also the first Survation poll since the 2019 general election to put Labour in front. 

The boost for Sir Keir comes after Mr Johnson has suffered a difficult few weeks of bad headlines.

The three point lead is the largest Labour has held over the Tories since July 2019 when Mr Johnson became premier. 

The poll of 1,060 people was conducted between November 30 and December 1. 

Mr Johnson has been rocked in recent weeks by the Westminster sleaze scandal, the worsening migrant Channel crossings issue, his shambolic speech to the CBI and political attacks over the cost of living crisis. 

He has also faced a backlash, after the poll was conducted, over reports Downing Street held a party in the run up to Christmas last year when such events were banned under Covid restrictions. 

The Survation poll puts Labour on 39 per cent of the vote overall, up by two points from the middle of November.

Mr Johnson and the Tories are on 36 per cent, down one point on the previous survey.

The numbers are likely to prompt alarm bells in Number 10 as the PM tries to steady the ship amid ongoing uncertainty over the coronavirus crisis because of the spread of the new Omicron variant. 

Today’s survey puts the Liberal Democrats in a distant third place on nine per cent of the vote.

Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP is on five per cent while the Green Party and Reform UK are both on three per cent.
