This from YouGov:



Now, if that is correct and if it holds until Johnson bottles it, there would be the possibility of a Lib-Lab coalition, with possible support of the SNP.

Thoughts?

The reality of four-way marginals makes seat predictions based on percentages more difficult. If this election happens after EU exit Johnson will do what it takes to woo the LDs and/or SNP (indyref2). All Corbyn will have to do to secure a Labour government is step down. So Tory government it is. I notice in nearly every poll that the Con/BXP vote is static. 44% of the electorate (and self-confessed super-patriots) are happy to bring about a national catastrophe.

Just seen on the BBC ticker that Labour peers are considering holding a VoNC in Corbyn.

Brexit winning where? Clacton and Boston/Skegness?
Thurrock perhaps? The likes of Hartlepool and the Stoke seats would also, theoretically, be prime targets for Farage.

A formal deal with the SNP would probably involve giving Sturgeon the right to call an independence referendum unilaterally at a time of her choosing. A Lib/Lab minority govt. would be the only way to call the SNP's bluff, invite them publicly to support every vote in the name of decency, or show themselves up to their voters by refusing to.

The Liberals are going to be very twitchy about a formal coalition anyway, so I suspect a precarious rainbow coalition could potentially be engineered, the biggest potential obstacle to that, ironically, is probably the Corbyn clique.
