Polling suggests Nigel Farage could win the seat of Clacton in Essex, should he decide to run.

The survey was commissioned by Arron Banks, a key financial supporter of Brexit’s Leave campaign.
He is also – in the interest of the broader socio-political context – one of the Left’s most disliked British public figures.
