In a poll, Express.co.uk asked: “Who will you vote for on December 12?”. Voters overwhelmingly selected Tories as who they would be voting for at the December polls.
Given a choice between all the parties, the Tories picked up 3,151 (69 percent) out of 4,503 votes.
Despite many national polls expecting the Brexit Party to not even pick up a seat on December 12, Nigel Farage’s party received the second-highest number of votes with, 889 (19 percent) among Express.co.uk readers.
In third, but some way off the top, Labour received 193 (four percent), with Lib Dems picking up 64 (one percent).
Behind that, 58 people decidedly marked their choice that they would vote for a party not listed, while 49 said they did ‘don’t know’.
Lastly, the SNP picked up 40, while Plaid Cymru and the Green Party both picked up 29 and 30 respectively.
Upon voting on the poll, readers expressed the opinion that there are only two true options to vote for.
One user said: “I’ll vote Conservative no Brexit Party option but more and more in this election I feel I’m voting for the least worst choice rather than the best.”
Another said: “I am forced to vote Tory as there is no Brexit candidate in my constituency but if there were it would have been Brexit all the way.
They said: “68% Conservative. I do hope that they get a working majority, whether they’re backed up by the Brexit party or not.
“If they do, we will move on.
“If they don’t, the impasse will continue.
“If they lose, we will not leave the ‘eu’. That’s all there is to be said, really.”
As it stands, in the latest YouGov poll from members of the public surveyed between December 2-3, the Tories are sitting at the top of the statistics with 42 percent of the vote.
Labour are second with 33 percent while the Lib Dems have struggled to gain much momentum and currently stands with just 12 percent.
Behind the three, the Brexit and Green Party both have four percent.
Key to Mr Johnson’s apparent surge in the polls has been his party’s targeting of Labour Leave seats in the north and the Midlands.
According to YouGov’s seat-by-seat poll which was released last week, they predict the Tories to win key Labour heartlands such as Bolsover, Dudley North and Leigh.
Moreover, overall the data predicted the Tories to storm to a 359 win, a 68 seat majority while Labour would fall to 211 seats.
The Express.co.uk poll ran on the website on December 4 from 2.23pm to 10.20pm.
