Fascinating and useful data as ever from Paula Surridge, looking at how the Remain supporters of Labour and Conservative compare on overall values:
Three important points flow from this:
- The spread of values amongst Conservative Remain voters may help, as Paula points out, explain the struggles of Change UK / The Independent Group, currently polling regularly below the Liberal Democrats.
- For Labour, it shows how brittle their support is – reliant as it is on a huge chunk of liberal Remain voters, for whom Lib Dems, Greens and Nationalists all have their own plans to win over.
- For the Liberal Democrats, it suggests that Labour is the key roadblock to greater success – and which helps explain why the party is so often criticising Labour over Brexit and other liberal matters.
