Labour Support Among Muslims Drops Sharply Amid Backlash at Keir Starmer’s Israel Stance

Labour’s support among Muslim voters has dropped by around a third amid anger at Keir Starmer’s Israel stance, according to a poll. The Mail has the story.

Research by Survation found that the party was backed by around 86% of Muslims at the last election in 2019.

However, that has seemingly dropped to 60% in a new survey.

The findings will raise fresh concerns in Labour circles about the impact of the raging war in Gaza. Sir Keir repeatedly refused to call for an immediate ceasefire as Israel responded to the Hamas massacre of civilians on October 7th.

The Opposition is facing a crucial test in the Rochdale by-election on February 29th, with George Galloway running against their candidate on a pro-Palestinian platform.

Simon Danczuk, who previously held the seat for Labour, is also standing for Reform U.K.

Survation highlighted that its poll was carried out using a “probability based, telephone-led approach”. Owing to the difficulty of polling such groups it was a relatively small sample.

The research found that Labour had 60% support, the Tories 8% and other parties 32%.

That compared to a study from 2021, when people were asked to say how they voted in the 2019 general election. That showed support for Labour at 86%, the Tories on 10% and other parties on 4%.
