It's the economy stupid! coined by Bill Clinton's strategist James Carville in 1992. The party in government tends to lose elections to the opposition on the basis of where the economy stands at the time of the general election. So whilst Boris Johnson's "Get Brexit Done" headline grabbing mantra sounds like it could deliver the Tories enough votes to win. However, if the economy is on the slide then all slogans and promises will be ignored, much as was the case for Theresa May's 2017 all about getting Brexit done election campaign.

So the focus of this analysis is where the economy stands and it's direction of travel relative to where economy stood in the run up to the June 2017 General Election as one of the 9 key election forecasting lessons learned from the outcome of the 2017 general election.

UK Economy - GDP Growth

At the top of prospective voters wish lists is a government that can competently manage the UK economy. In which respect the last Labour government failed in spectacular style by delivering the worst recession since WW2! Which Jeremy Corbyn hopes that 10 years on most voters will have forgotten just how catastrophically the last Labour Government ended.

The electorate clearly favour the party of Government to be typically delivering GDP growth of at least 2% per annum if they want to be rewarded with a significant re-election majority.

2015

That was the case in 2015 with the last GDP statistics before voting day coming in at a +2.4% which was sustained during the period of Vote which resulted in the Tories being rewarded with a 'surprise' majority government.

2017

Saw 2% GDP going into the election which implied a smaller majority total than the 330 of 2015.

2019

What about 2019? We'll Poor old Boris Johnson is lumbered with a GDP growth rate of just 1% to Q3 (Sept 2019) AND FALLING! Which implies that the Tories could do WORSE than in 2017!
