This piece seems to be referencing that polling
The wider issue being that Labour's voter coalition has unpeeled like a banana over the past few years, starting in Scotland and reaching a peak/nadir with the fallout from Brexit & Corbyn in 2019 and beyond.
Corbyn-sympathetic left winger who backed RLB/Burgon during the leadership elections last year?
Starmer isn't - and emphatically never will be - your guy. The Greens will get your vote until he is gone (or "purged").
One of the Glastonbury cool kids responsible for the 2017 Youthquake?
The Greens seem a more natural fit than a Starmer-led Labour Party. Didn't he used to be a cop or summat?
Left-leaning Scottish voter attracted to the idea of Scottish independence?
Already decided to throw in your lot with the SNP some years ago.
Brexity Red Wall voter fed up with all this BLM stuff?
Happy that Corbyn is out, but good old Boris gets your vote for now.
Traumatised Remainer who hates everything about Brexit Britain?
Gutted that Starmer now accepts the end of EU freedom of movement. Lib Dems for you.
Taking all that into account, it's actually quite impressive Labour are still rooted somewhere in the mid-thirties in many of the opinion polls.
