Poll of Labour members suggests Keir Starmer is first choice.

Keir Starmer has emerged as an early frontrunner in the Labour leadership race to succeed Jeremy Corbyn after a poll of members suggested he was the first choice in all regions of the UK, age groups and social classes.

The shadow Brexit secretary is yet to formally launch his campaign but is expected to do so in the first few weeks of the new year. The new leader will be elected in March after Corbyn said he would step down following the party’s catastrophic general election defeat.

Polling by YouGov for the Party Members Project put Starmer as winning with a 61% vote share to 39% for the shadow business secretary, Rebecca Long Bailey, in the last round.

Jess Phillips, the chair of the women’s parliamentary Labour party, who has yet to declare if she is running, was the third most popular choice among members, who were surveyed between 20 and 30 December.

The results at this preliminary stage suggest that the winner is unlikely to come from the left of the party, according to Prof Tim Bale of Queen Mary University of London, who jointly ran the poll with the University of Sussex.

“This is not shaping up to be a 2015-style Labour leadership contest. Unless potential candidates drop out before the start of voting, it may take a few rounds to decide the winner this time around.

“But it doesn’t look at the moment as if the winner will come from the left of the party. Right now anyway, Keir Starmer looks to be heading for a fairly emphatic victory,” he said.

So far only the shadow foreign secretary, Emily Thornberry, and the shadow treasury minister, Clive Lewis, have officially said they want to run to be the next Labour leader.

Phillips, who represents Birmingham Yardley, and the Wigan MP, Lisa Nandy, are expected to stand while the former Labour minister and home affairs select committee chair, Yvette Cooper, is understood to be weighing up her options as to whether she will vie for the leadership for a second time.

The party chairman and Corbyn ally Ian Lavery – who lambasted the party’s performance for their muddled stance on Brexit – might also run. A former National Union of Mineworkers chair who supports leaving the EU, he would be the most leftwing of all the potential candidates.

The poll will be interesting reading for all those who said they were using the Christmas break to decide whether to launch official campaigns and gain the signatures of MPs needed to get on the ballot.

In the survey of 1,059 Labour party members, 31% put Starmer as their first-choice candidate, 20% backed Long Bailey as their favourite, Phillips received 11% and Lewis and Cooper were the first choice for 7% of surveyed members. Thornberry was on 6% and Nandy was on 5%.

----------------------------------------------

Hopefully sanity will prevail and an electable leader will be chosen. Early days yet though.
Whoever gets it will have to decide if the Party is going to continue to fight against Brexit or get behind it.
I was reading about an ex-Labour MP from Stoke blaming Corbyn, she’s out of order. Her constituents for months had been complaining about her pro remain stance, she totally ignored them till the death, it was too late then.
I think the result wouldn’t have been so bad if they had played the Will of the People for the reason to leave stance but chose to slowly move towards remain.

I can't win: Yvette Cooper is set to ditch her bid to lead the Labour party as she fears she cannot win the race, friend claims. Yvette Cooper is set to pull out of the leadership race amid fears she cannot win. At the weekend the former cabinet minister fuelled speculation she would run, but one friend said she fears being punished by Jeremy Corbyn's supporters,

Yvette Cooper is set to pull out of the race to succeed Jeremy Corbyn amid fears she cannot win.

Miss Cooper, who refused to serve in Mr Corbyn’s shadow cabinet, said last month she would ‘decide over Christmas’ whether to make a second bid for the leadership.

At the weekend the former cabinet minister fuelled speculation she would run by penning a newspaper article warning Labour must resist ‘pressure to be a factional or narrow hard-Left party’.

But one friend last night told the Mail that Miss Cooper was likely to withdraw as she feared being punished by Mr Corbyn’s army of fanatical supporters for failing to support him in office.

The friend said: ‘From the way Yvette is talking, she is not going to stand. The way the party is now, it is going to be very difficult for anyone who has criticised the Dear Leader, as she has. It’s ridiculous when he’s just lost us another election. It’s also a crying shame. Yvette is one of the few grown-ups we’ve got left – she’s probably our best chance.’

A shame really. What has she got to lose - or maybe she is waiting for next time round after 2020? Of those in the centre ground, she impresses as a very able individual who in my opinion has proved herself very capable of holding her own in any company and matching anybody ( and more ) at PM Questions etc.

Even though she has been one of the ones trying to thwart Brexit, she would’ve made a better leader than some standing for the job. She’s outlasted her husband (Ed Balls) in the political field.
