Sadiq Khan is on course for big win – so what do Londoners want from their mayor in a second term?


A new poll carried out for the Mile End Institute (MEI) at Queen Mary has predicted that Sadiq Khan is set to secure a second term as London mayor on May 6. Dr Patrick Diamond, Associate Professor in Public Policy at Queen Mary has written an opinion piece for the Conversation on the upcoming elections. He writes: "According to our latest poll with YouGov, Khan is currently leading Bailey by 47% to 26% on first preferences. In the final round, the current mayor would beat his rival by 66% to 34%. The Mile End Institute (MEI) at Queen Mary University of London has been analysing the changing political landscape in the nation’s capital over the last four years through our regular polls. We’ve found that Khan’s political strengths are his perceived competence, the fact that his policy agenda resonates with the concerns of many Londoners, and the relative dominance of the Labour party in the capital."
