Sussex Election Battlegrounds: Ashcroft Polling Data

There are four major election battlegrounds in East Sussex in the upcoming election. Hove is the only Labour seat in the South East and Brighton Pavilion is the only Green seat in the country. Brighton Kemptown is a target for Labour and Lewes is a target for the Lib Dems.

The data above is from Lord Ashcroft's polls for each constituency. Currently Ashcroft has Hove as too close to call. Lewes looks from this data as if it might remain Conservative with strong support for Theresa May and with a more pro-Brexit outlook.

Green MP Caroline Lucas looks safe in Brighton Pavilion as it is the only constituency where a majority do not prefer Theresa May as Prime Minister, where there is the strongest anti-Brexit felling and where 70% of people feel Britain is on the wrong track.
