Britain’s Labor Party recorded its first voting lead on Sunday as Boris Johnson became Prime Minister last year as support for his troubled Conservative government continued.
The Opinium poll for the Observer newspaper put Labor at 42 percent, with the Conservatives at 39 percent.
New Labor leader Keir Starr also took the lead when voters were asked who would be the best prime minister, being the preferred choice for 36 percent of voters, compared to 32 percent for Johnson.
The Tories were polling 26 points ahead of Labor in March, but Johnson’s handling of the coronavirus epidemic, which has claimed around 42,000 lives in Britain, has seen his popularity.
There is little relief on the horizon for the Prime Minister as he grapples with another spike in coronovirus cases while trying to stem the collapse of the economy.
He is facing a revolt next week by Conservative allies who accuse him of being ruled by Dickett and speculation is already underway about a possible replacement, with Finance Minister Sage Sanak Attracted attention.
