Poll shows Lib Dems set to win Harrogate and Knaresborough at general election

A detailed survey has predicted that Liberal Democrat candidate Tom Gordon is set to defeat the Conservative Party in Harrogate & Knaresborough at the next election. 

The MRP poll by YouGov, reported in The Telegraph yesterday (Sunday), finds that Andrew Jones MP would narrowly lose their seat to Liberal Democrat candidate Tom Gordon if an election were held now.

More widely, the Liberal Democrats are predicted to win 48 seats at the next election, most of which from the Blue Wall.

This follows four unprecedented by-election wins in formerly safe Conservative seats in the past two years, as well as hundreds of gains in local elections across the Blue Wall since 2019.

The Liberal Democrats won the local popular vote and the majority of councillors in Harrogate & Knaresborough at the North Yorkshire local elections.

Responding to the poll, Liberal Democrat candidate for Harrogate & Knaresborough, Tom Gordon said:

“As our area's next MP, I would stand up for Harrogate & Knaresborough and give local people the voice that they need and deserve.”
