Jeremy Corbyn ‘on brink’ of Number 10 as Brexit mess ‘puts off young voters’
Tory leadership hopeful, Boris Johnson, could lose his seat and his 5,000 strong majority could slip if the trend against the Government continues, think tank Onward warns.
Analysis shows Bo Jo would likely lose if the ratio rises above 1.1 younger residents (aged 20-39) for every older voter over 60 – which is the case in his Uxbridge and South Ruislip seat.
These younger voters are likely to determine their ballot when thinking of factors such as whether they have managed to buy their own home.
Nick Faith, from Onward, said: “The age profile of whether someone is more likely to vote Conservative is rising sharply.
“The tipping point is now 51 which means the Tories are increasingly putting off younger voters.
"Over time this could have a significant impact on certain parliamentary seats which on the face it might seem secure.”
Other people at risk include Foreign Office Minister Mark Field and ex-Trade Minister Greg Hands who hold London seats.
