Poll boost for Ben


A recent comprehensive poll by respected opinion pollsters YouGov has delivered a major boost to Ben Lake and Plaid Cymru ahead of the upcoming General Election.

The poll was based on more than 100,000 interviews over seven days and puts Ben Lake ahead of all his rivals, with his support having increased to 32%. 

Ben Lake’s odds to retain the seat have narrowed as a result of the poll – and he is now favourite with several betting companies.   

In a surprise finding, YouGov’s poll found that the Conservatives were in the running to take second place in Ceredigion and could overtake the Lib Dems – who polled 21% and 22% respectively.

The full results of the poll in Ceredigion were as follows:

Ben Lake, Plaid Cymru 32%
Liberal Democrats 22%
Conservatives 21%
Labour 13%
Brexit Party 8%
Green 3%

Elin Jones, Plaid Cymru Assembly Member for Ceredigion, said,

"These results reflect what we're seeing on the doorstep, and highlights the respect held locally for Ben and his work in the constituency and as a strong voice in Westminster. However, there’s no room for complacency, and it’s crucial we remember that only one poll truly matters – the election itself. We’ll continue with the positive, energetic campaign over the coming fortnight.”
