Sir Keir Starmer’s popularity among the electorate in Scotland has reportedly taken a plunge, entering the negative column for the very first time, as the results of a recent study have shown.
According to the findings of a survey that was conducted by Redfield & Wilton Strategies between June 3 and June 5, it was found that a higher proportion of people in Scotland now disapprove of Sir Keir’s performance as Labour leader than approve of his performance in that role.
The most recent poll found that 29% of respondents approved of the policy, which is a one-point decline from the poll that was conducted between April 30 and May 2, and that 32% of respondents disagreed of the policy, which is a four-point rise when compared to the poll that was conducted between April 30 and May 2.
As a direct consequence of this, the overall level of approval for the leader of the Labour Party was a negative three. This is the first time in the whole history of the organization’s Scottish tracker poll that Sir Keir has ended in a position that is considered to be negative.
According to the findings of recent surveys, Sir Keir’s popularity in regions located north of the border has been steadily waning over the course of the previous several months. In November of the previous year, his approval rating was plus 11, but it sank to plus 10 in March, plus 10 in April, plus 8 in April, and ultimately plus 2 in May.
