LABOUR AM JANE HUTT SET TO LOSE HER VALE OF GLAMORGAN SEAT

Jane Hutt comforts First Minister Carwyn Jones during the count to decide which party would form a Welsh Government in 2016

Labour Vale of Glamorgan AM Jane Hutt comforts  Carwyn Jones in May last year during the tense count to decide whether he would remain as First Minister. There was a dead heat –  leaving Jones in tears. After a deal was stitched up with Plaid Cymru, there was a second ballot

The veteran Labour AM Jane Hutt would lose her Vale of Glamorgan seat if there was an election for the Welsh Assembly now  – according to an opinion poll conducted by YouGov for ITV Wales and Cardiff University.

The opinion poll also shows that support for the Labour Party has fallen to its lowest level in Wales since before the 2010 general election.

The “Welsh Political Barometer” poll is the first to test public opinion in Wales so far this year, and shows that Labour support has fallen by two points from the previous poll in the series – taking the party back to its worst days in the last weeks of Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

There is a small ray of hope for the Lib-Dems who appear to have the support of 9% of electors

If there was a Parliamentary General Election now, Plaid Cymru would take the Ynys Mon seat from Labour – using the existing boundaries. If the election was fought using the new fairer constituency boundaries Labour would end up with four seats fewer than now

Although Labour remains the largest party its support is continuing to decline both in terms of the Welsh Assembly and with Welsh MPs in Westminster

In the National Assembly there would also be a decline in Labour representation and giving the party its lowest rating since July 2009 .The Conservatives are projected to win  Gower, the Vale of Clwyd, the Vale of Glamorgan, and Wrexham whilst Plaid Cymru would gain Blaenau Gwent, Cardiff West, and Llanelli and the Liberal Democrats would gain Cardiff Central.

The YouGov poll, for ITV Wales and Cardiff University’s Wales Governance Centre, had a sample of 1,034 Welsh adults and was carried out by YouGov from 3-6 January 2017.

    Jane Hutt has been on borrowed time for a while… does absolutely nothing for the Vale of Glamorgan, never has done, never will do!!

  2. LJS says:

    Labour has taken the Welsh electorate for granted for too long. Jane Hutt is a just one cog in that Labour machine.
    Welsh voters realising we cannot afford Labour any longer. Out of touch with working people… and non-working people.
    Champagne socialism at its finest… Carwyn Jones chartering a private jet to Lille at a cost to us of £9,950 to ‘represent’ Wales… when we all thought it was the Welsh Football Team who were representing us.

    It’s so funny how many times have I heard Plaid to win Llanelli they never do, pretty poor guess work.
