Responding to today’s Welsh YouGov poll, the Welsh Liberal Democrats have called on Green, Change UK and remain Labour voters to unite behind the Welsh Liberal Democrats to stop the Brexit Party and secure another remain seat.
The poll puts the Brexit Party first, followed by Welsh Labour, Plaid Cymru, the Welsh Liberal Democrats. The Green Party then lead the Conservatives and Change UK.
Lead Welsh Liberal Democrat European Candidate Sam Bennett commented:
“This poll shows we have a real chance of electing a Welsh Liberal Democrat MEP. We are the best option for those trying to stop Brexit and the best chance to stop the Brexit party.
“It’s clear that the Brexit Party, Welsh Labour and Plaid Cymru will all win a seat and that it is a straight choice between a Welsh Liberal Democrat MEP or a 2nd Brexit Party MEP.
“Green Party, Change UK and remain Labour voters must now unite behind the Welsh Liberal Democrats. We are the party of remain and we’re the only chance to stop the Brexit Party and secure another remain MEP for Wales. If you want to stop Brexit, you must vote Welsh Liberal Democrat.”
