Nigel Farage’s Reform Party may get 24% of the vote on the poll field on July 4, a ballot has projected.

The highest share of the vote he has ever acquired in a ballot.

Pollster Matt Goodwin, of People Polling who carried out the survey, stated: “Is this a freak poll? Maybe.

“It is a radical outlier? Maybe.

“Or is it the first of many polls to find Nigel Farage and Reform climbing to a significantly higher level of support than they’ve won until now? Again, maybe.”

The highest share of the vote for Nigel Farage and Reform within the nationwide polls up to now has been 19%, which was reported by YouGov final week.

The survey, of 1,228 adults for GB News, put Labour at 35%, Conservatives at 15%, Lib Dems on 12%, the Greens at 8% and the SNP on 3%.

Mr Goodwin stated: “Were the above numbers to appear at the general election, in only fifteen days time, then the result would be, well, seismic in more ways than one.

“Keir Starmer and the Labour Party would win the election comfortably, with a Labour majority of around 240 seats.

“The Tories would crash and burn, falling to only around 45 seats. The Lib Dems would finish with more seats than the Tories, on around 64. Nigel Farage and Reform would not be far behind, on around 50. And the Greens would win two.”

“What on earth are we to make of this?

“Well, for a start, this is not like anything else we’ve seen.”

The Conservatives are projected to hunch to their “lowest seat tally in the party’s almost 200-year history” on the General Election, based on one other pollster.

YouGov stated its newest research tasks Labour to safe 425 seats, the Tories 108, the Liberal Democrats 67, SNP 20, Reform UK 5, Plaid Cymru 4 and the Green Party two.

It famous such a state of affairs would hand Labour chief Sir Keir Starmer a 200-seat majority whereas it added Reform UK chief Nigel Farage is “likely” to win in Clacton.

YouGov used a way often called multi-level regression and post-stratification (MRP) to mannequin the end result of the election in each constituency throughout Britain.

It stated the estimated seat projections had been primarily based on modelled responses from 36,161 adults in England and Wales, and three,818 in Scotland, between June 11 and 18.

Several high-profile Conservatives, together with Chancellor Jeremy Hunt, would lose out if the projection performed out on the poll field on July 4.

YouGov wrote: “Our new MRP has the Conservatives on their lowest seat tally in the party’s almost 200-year history.”

It added: “Our latest model has 109 seats as toss ups – meaning that the winning party’s lead is less than five points. Sixty five marginal seats are contests between the Conservatives and Labour.”

Elsewhere, a ballot by More In Common projected a Labour majority of 162, simply shy of its 1997 and 2001 landslides, with the Conservatives slumping to their worst seat complete since 1906.

The survey of greater than 10,000 individuals steered the Conservatives would maintain simply 155 seats.

High-profile casualties forecast within the More In Common projection embody Mr Hunt, who would lose his Godalming and Ash seat to the Liberal Democrats, and Defence Secretary Grant Shapps, who would lose Welwyn Hatfield to Labour.
