Where have Labour’s voters gone? The story of the ‘stay at home’ voters!
Firstly some evidence of Labour’s very own lost voters:
|Votes||% Vote Share|
|Total lost votes||12037|
|Total lost votes||10111|
|Wentworth & Dearne|
|Total lost votes||8909|
|Grand total lost votes in Rotherham|
The evidence above was extracted from, Rotherham General Election Results 1997- 2010. Had the 1992 results been used as a baseline the lost votes would have been even higher as 1992, was the high watermark in Labour’s fortunes in Rotherham.
Even Rothpol was surprised at the lost voters, 31057 since 1997. Only one constituency was won in 2010 with a majority of the popular vote and that was by a whisker!
