Sunderland General Election 2019 Results

Here’s the results for the Sunderland area in the General Election, 12th December 2019. The Labour Party votes are down but they still win the five seats we are highlighting around Wearside. The results also reflects the trend we saw in the May’s council elections where the Labour vote suffered then too.

Obviously, people were voting with Brexit in mind. However, the Labour Party can count themselves lucky that the Brexit Party actually stood. This is because had the Brexit Party not been in these elections, Sunderland could well have woke up with 3 Conservative MP’s this morning.

Sunderland General Election 2019 – To Sum Up

Despite the Labour Party candidates retaining their seats, some might say that it’s them who are licking their wounds. It is clear that the people of Sunderland are turning their backs on the Labour Party and we saw this in the council elections earlier in the year. Indeed, it seems to be the Brexit Party that kept Sunderland red. However, what these results show is that Sunderland might not provide safe seats for Labour in the future.
