We are now in the second week of our series of General Election updates, which includes a review of party and leadership visibility alongside our key topics monitor.

Leadership Visibility


While Theresa May still enjoys the highest visibility of monitored party leaders, this week has seen growth in Jeremy Corbyn's visibility.

Party Visibility

Both Labour and Conservatives continue to dominate overall conversational share, with smaller main parties continuing to struggle for significant cut through.

Key Topics

Brexit has seen a significant drop in conversational share this week as parties begin to push a broader range of manifesto policies.

Health & Welfare was the key topic this week accounting for nearly 13% of all monitored political topics.
