With the London mayoral race previously being placed in favour of a Khan win by the pollsters, it now emerges Khan is under massive pressure with a knife-edge lead after the first vote.
The second choice vote count is now underway. The results so far are Khan – 487,104, with the conservative candidate having 462,837.
Richard Tice was on TalkRADIO talking about the thin lead Khan has. Tice said: “I can reveal to you that the London mayoral elections is making a total mockery of the polls that suggested Sadiq Khan would win in a landslide.”
“It is on a knife-edge. It is within one percent on the first preference. That is after 35 percent counted. Generally, that suggests the direction of travel.
“There is a debate today whether the Conservative-leaning boroughs are counting faster, but it looks like it will turn on the second preference.”
