Snap election could see Bristol gain 2 Lib Dem MPs, polls suggest


A YouGov poll which hypothesises an early general election puts the Lib Dems on course for Downing Street, with Bristol West and Bristol North West gaining Lib Dem MPs.

The poll asks respondents if in the event of an early general election, with Jeremy Corbyn leading the Labour Party with its current commitment to deliver a Brexit deal, how they would vote. The scenario sees the Lib Dems on 30%, Conservatives on 24%, the Brexit Party on 19% and Corbyn's Labour on a record low 17%. 

Poll modelling agency Flavible has suggested that this would lead to Liberal Democrats gaining the Bristol West and Bristol North West constituencies and coming second in Bristol East. 

James Cox, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Bristol West, said:

"This is a pretty clear message to Jeremy Corbyn. It's time to get off the fence and back Remain or face a wipe-out at the next election.

"What this poll shows is that the Lib Dems will be the home for remain voters at the next election and I'm excited to give the people of Bristol West the unambiguously anti-Brexit, pro-European MP they're crying out for."

"The Lib Dems are being rewarded for our long-standing and principled position of opposing Brexit, supporting a People's Vote and fighting for our place in the European Union. The choice is becoming clear - Brexit with Boris & Corbyn or Remain with the Lib Dems."
