I’ve spent the last couple of days gathering as much data as possible on Labour MPs to see what insights we can draw from the recent Labour leadership and deputy leadership elections. I’ve pulled out some key points in the infographics below.
Yvette Cooper has the support of the highest number of former ministers
andy burnham has the highest support of those mps who weren’t subject to trials of the blair/brown era
labour mps backing the most left wing leadership candidates have the safest majorities in their own seats
andy burnham supporters had the lowest median vote share gain in 2015
andy burnham has the most support in 4/5 of the regions with the most labour mps
Andy burnham supporters are far more likely to be facing ukip as the main opposition in their seat
labour co-op mps love liz kendall
andy burnham and tom watson is the most popular leader/deputy leader combination
liz kendall is the heir to david miliband, whilst andy burnham has the most support from ed miliband backers and new mps
