Red Wall, Red Herring? Understanding economic insecurity and voting intention

Our new research - using British Election Study data - explores who in Britain feels economically insecure and how this relates to political attitudes and voting intention. We suggest that a focus on Red Wall places creates a potential blind spot about who is economically left behind, where these people live, and the electoral coalitions of the political parties in future elections.
