Working class voters abandoning Labour, polling shows

Working class voters have abandoned Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party in big numbers since the turn of the year.

Polling from YouGov out today reveals that voters that fall under the ‘C2DE’ social grade are backing the Conservatives by 48% compared to 37% for Labour.

That is quite the turnaround. As Election Data pointed out on Twitter, in January the numbers were 46%/35% in Labour’s favour.

The latest YouGov poll also has the Conservatives ahead by 7 points overall.

As Labour’s Brexit policy has grown ever softer and opportunistic, combined with the continuing issue of antisemitism plaguing Corbyn’s party, working class voters are turning away. Has Corbyn peaked?
