This shift in methodology affects how smaller parties are seen in the polls, as their share of national voting intention is reduced by the reduction in the number of seats in which they're standing.

By halving the number of its candidates, it went from being a national party to a small party overnight, and the share of its voting intention in the polls has plunged. But this does not tell the whole story. The same is true of the Greens. Other pollsters, including Ipsos MORI, Kantar, and Panelbase, address this to a certain extent by asking respondents for their second preferences. Those who select the Brexit Party as their initial voting intention, but live in a seat where the party is not standing, have their second preference used instead.
However, there is no guarantee that voters who are unaware that their first choice isn't standing will commit to their second preference.

It may be more likely, when they discover their chosen party isn't standing, that they decide not to turn out. The Brexit Party's pull-out may have given the Conservatives a boost in the polls, but predicting how many of those votes materialise on polling day is a harder problem. Can Labour upset the odds? The Liberal Democrats have been squeezed, but they may just bounce back Who benefits if two million people register to vote this week? Work two jobs and I am still barely able to make the rent every month. The grassroots campaign has a simple, coherent purpose: to demonstrate the disastrous effects of nine years of Conservative government on the people facing in-work poverty, benefits cuts, mounting student debt and homelessness.
When it comes to the digital culture war, the Tories seem intent on winning. But the social media battlefield is also where the Tories face significant threats, particularly if Labour manages to build on the strengths of its election campaign. Some of the most viewed videos on social media originated from the activist group Momentum, which also provided continuous Twitter coverage, and helped mobilise thousands of local activists.
Has the party replicated its digital success in this election? The pressure group has launched new apps, including one that will help students register to vote. Elsewhere, the Liberal Democrats and Greens are hoping to fire up their young digital activists — as is the Brexit Party, which has rapidly accrued a substantial social media following and is using effective internet memes and short videos to communicate its proposals.

The lack of strong support organisations and unofficial activist networks is a major weakness for the Tories. Some 56 per cent of the Conservative membership is aged over The Young Conservatives UK was only founded in , and the number of its members is unknown. Meanwhile, the UK offshoot of US right-wing student movement Turning Point, is an astroturf campaign that is no match for its leftist counterpart — either in membership numbers, or social media reach. The Tories also lack support in digital subcultures, meme groups, online forums and other informal channels of political critique and propaganda.
On the other side of the Atlantic, alt-right forums overflow with Trump supporters. Scholars are divided over whether online support translates into votes. Yet growing evidence suggests social media, like other campaigning, can play a role in electoral outcomes.
Researchers at the Oxford Internet Institute found politicians with Twitter accounts received a higher share of the vote in the election. Social media activity among young people can also catalyse offline protests. Aware of this potential, the Conservatives are likely to deploy more daring social media tactics than in If Labour is to defy the odds stacked against it at this election, it must double down on grassroots social media campaigns that drive home its message among young voters. In the Times , Ephraim Mirvis said "a new poison — sanctioned from the very top — has taken root" in the party.
And I admire and respect him. You need to think carefully about the message. And everybody now accepts that we took too long to deal with it. That is now accepted. The difficulty is that once you lose confidence or trust, it takes quite a long time to get it back. I know Jeremy Corbyn very well. But do I think that we have not dealt with this matter well enough? Of course. But Labour should be better than that. We rightly we set our ourselves a much higher bar. And I think that we have let people down. Does that mean people want a Conservative government instead?
