Exit polls from the U.K. elections suggest that the Conservative Party is on course to secure an overall majority of 86 seats in the general election as the party nearly doubled the amount the seats that the far-left Labour Party won.

“The survey taken at UK polling stations suggests the Tories [The Conservative Party] will get 368 MPs – 50 more than at the 2017 election – when all the results have been counted,” the BBC reported. Labour would get 191, the Lib Dems 13, the Brexit Party none and the SNP 55. The Green Party will still have one MP and Plaid Cymru will lose one seat for a total of three, the survey suggests.”

BBC noted that the survey, conducted by Ipsos MORI, is a very accurate poll and that the group surveyed over 22,000 people at 144 different polling locations.

New York Times Deputy Political Editor Steven Swinford reported that the blow out win will give the Conservatives the biggest majority that they have had in 32 years.

“Johnson will have the numbers he needs to get his Brexit deal through the Commons,” Swinford tweeted. “If exit polls are right Boris Johnson is PM and Britain will leave EU on Jan 31.”

Swinford highlighted the reaction from the far-left Labour Party, which is led by notorious anti-Semite Jeremy Corbyn: “LABOUR REACTION: Barry Gardiner tells Sky News ‘this exit poll is a devastating blow … I think we offered a manifesto of hope that was full of integrity. If this is the result then many, many people are going to be let down'”

“Barry Gardiner says that if the exit poll is correct he is ‘deeply, deeply depressed,'” Swinford added. “He says it’s premature to be discussing Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership and that he hopes his colleagues will retain their seats.”

Sky News Political Correspondent Lewis Goodall tweeted out a quote from sources in the Labour Party who said that the party lost because Corbyn was an anti-Semite who did not understand economics:

Goodall tweeted, “Labour source: ‘This is a damning verdict on the Corbyn project. If the exit poll is accurate then jeremy Corbyn, Karie Murphy and Seamus Milne will have done more to bring about the end of the Labour Party than the Conservative Party ever could. Their position is untenable.'”

Goodall tweeted, “Labour source: ‘Any attempt to blame this on Brexit is folly. The one thing that came up time and time again from voters – Corbyn. Whether that was his support of the IRA, his antisemitism or limited grasp of economics. He was the problem.'”

Goodall concluded, “Another Labour source: ‘Leadership will try and blame it on Brexit but that’s bollocks. Speak to any candidate. They know what the problem was. And it was much more than Brexit.'”

The Conservative Party’s blow out win over the far-left Labour Party comes after socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) meddled in the election by sharing promotional content encouraging British citizens to vote for the anti-Semitic Corbyn.
