This is according to research by Get Voting. Seems worth sharing just to potentially have Liz Truss lose her seat!

    I think the title has been an obvious one since Truss’s term. The real story is how engaged people are now and the rise in the tactical vote over the spoiled ballot that could see them lose more.

    It is definitely worth checking all three of these to make sure your tactical vote is used in the best way possible:

    If you’re really not happy with the party the tactical voting sites recommend for your constituency, Compass are also offering the Win As One vote swapping tool, where you can be paired up with someone who also can’t vote the way they would like to. By swapping votes, both people can do what they have to for a tactical victory while still having their first choice counted.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    The Conservatives could lose once safe constituencies such as Theresa May’s former seat in the coming general election, with nearly 40% of people willing to vote tactically to oust the Tories, a campaign group has said.

    Setting out its recommendations for how people could maximise their chances of not electing a Conservative, Best for Britain said particularly efficient tactical voting could even unseat Liz Truss and Suella Braverman.

    These could include the cabinet ministers Penny Mordaunt, Jeremy Hunt, Robert Jenrick, Grant Shapps and James Cleverly.

    At a launch event in central London, Naomi Smith, the group’s chief executive, said the UK was “now a nation of tactical voters”, a factor that could worsen the Conservatives’ electoral fortunes.

    Lewis Baston, a psephologist who also spoke at the event, said MRP polling showed that even where Conservative candidates remained ahead, for many this involved securing little more than a third of votes, making them vulnerable to opponents joining forces.

    Asked how such recommendations were made, Smith said it was in part a trade-off between the parties, but also because Thangam Debbonaire, the Labour frontbencher at risk from the Greens in Bristol, “has been an excellent MP on the issues that we care about, including Europe”.
