Panelbase poll forecasts Labour wipeout

The Labour Party in Scotland looks set to lose all but one of its seats after the first Scottish opinion poll of the current campaign.

The Panelbase poll for the Sunday Times forecasts a seven point loss for Jeremy Corbyn since the General Election in 2017.

If the study’s findings are reflected in polling on December 12, Ian Murray’s Edinburgh South constituency would constitute Labour’s sole outpost north of the border.

In contrast to Labour both the SNP and the Liberal Democrats are expected to increase their share of the vote.

Our reporter Dana Hall takes a look at the way in which the findings of the latest poll have been covered by various media outlets.
