Tories Face Major Loss: New Poll Predicts Only 53 MPs, Rishi Sunak's Seat at Risk

Conservative Collapse

A groundbreaking new poll suggests the Conservative Party could be reduced to just 53 MPs in the upcoming election, marking a historic low. Alarmingly, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak might become the first sitting PM to lose his seat. The latest Savanta and Electoral Calculus analysis projects Labour securing 516 seats, giving them a commanding majority of 382 double the margin of Tony Blair’s 1997 victory. This substantiates Tory warnings of a potential Labour “super-majority.”

In a dramatic shift, the Conservatives, with only 50 MPs, might find themselves vying with the Liberal Democrats for the role of Official Opposition. While Nigel Farage’s Reform Party is not expected to secure any seats according to this poll, a separate YouGov mega-poll forecasts Reform could claim five seats, adding to the challenges faced by Mr. Sunak.

Chris Hopkins, political research director at Savanta, highlights the unprecedented confluence of events against the Conservatives: “These stark figures result from a unique set of circumstances, from the immediate impact of recent campaign missteps to long-term issues like the mini-budget fallout and Partygate.”

Hopkins further elaborates, “Historically viewed as the natural party of government, the Conservative Party now faces the real possibility of battling the Liberal Democrats for the status of Official Opposition. Our MRP projections with Electoral Calculus indicate that nearly 200 seats are too close to call, meaning slight shifts could significantly alter the election outcome.”
