Next Prime Minister Odds: Sir Keir Starmer favourite to be next PM after election

With the next UK general election less than 18 months away, we’ve priced up Sir Keir Starmer at 1/8 to be the next Prime Minister.

Prime Minister after next general election odds:

Sir Keir Starmer to be Prime Minister after next general election1/8
Rishi Sunak to be Prime Minister after next general election9/2
Boris Johnson to be Prime Minister after next general election33/1
Penny Mordaunt to be Prime Minister after next general election33/1
Andy Burnham to be Prime Minister after next general election50/1

Government after next general election odds:

Labour Majority after next general election4/9
Labour Minority after next general election3/1
Conservative Minority after next general election5/1
Conservative Majority after next general election8/1
Labour/Lib Dem Coalition after next general election8/1

A YouGov poll in June found that 31% of respondees felt there should be a general election held before the end of the year, while 16% called for an election in spring 2024, compared to just 6% favouring the latest possible election in January 2025.

Although Labour have held a resounding lead in the polls since the mini-budget which led to the resignations of Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng and former Prime Minister Liz Truss, the lead has dropped from 37 points to 19 points.

Labour are currently polling at 45%, 13 points better than Starmer himself at 32%, though the picture is certainly a lot brighter for the Labour leader than the Prime Minister.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s approval rating is currently lower than Boris Johnson’s following his resignation in 2022.

When is the next general election?

The next general election is due by January 2025.

The Liberal Democrats, who won the Somerton and Frome by-election in July, are 2/5 favourites to win Mid Bedfordshire, while the Conservatives are 7/2 to hold.

Labour are 1/8 to win the most seats at the next general election with Sir Keir Starmer 1/8 to be the Prime Minister after the next general election.

While it would take a momentous shift in the polls to deny Labour being the biggest party after the next election, they may not clear the 325 seats to form a majority government, though a Labour Majority is still favourite at 4/9 with a Labour Minority 3/1.
