UK election exit polling suggests Labour is headed for landslide victory

An exit poll in the U.K.'s general election suggests it will be a landslide victory for the opposition Labour Party after nearly a decade and a half of Conservative rule.

The poll, released moments after polls closed on Thursday, indicated that Labour leader Keir Starmer will be the country’s next prime minister.

'Today, Britain’s future is on the ballot,' Starmer wrote in an X post prior to the election.

If Starmer wins the general election, it will be the Labour Party's first win since 2005.

Labour pledged to get the U.K.'s sluggish economy growing, invest in infrastructure and make Britain a 'clean energy superpower.'

Rishi Sunak has served as prime minister of the U.K. and leader of the Conservative Party since 2022.
