The Conservatives won the 2019 general election with the highest vote share for any party since 1979. The opposition Labour Party, meanwhile, won its lowest number of seats since 1935.
Since then the polls have fluctuated significantly. For any politico, keeping an eye on the polls is a healthy sport but fixating on individual polls is a risky endeavour. Better, instead, to look at the polls in aggregate. Modelling from the Britain Elects poll trackers helps us cut through the noise of outlier surveys and instead gain a deeper understanding of who is ahead in the polls, who the country wants as prime minister, which politicians are in favour with the public and which issues matter most to voters.
