This is the biggest lead Labour holds over the Tories in terms of points since Mr Johnson was premier in July 2019.
Between November 30th and December 1st, 1,060 respondents were surveyed.
Mr Johnson has been rocked in recent weeks by the Westminster sleaze scandal, the worsening migrant Channel crossings issue, his shambolic speech to the CBI and political attacks over the cost of living crisis.
After the poll was completed, he faced backlash over claims that Downing Street hosted a party during the Christmas period last year, when such events are prohibited under Covid restrictions.
Survation’s poll shows Labour at 39% overall. This is up two points since the middle November.
Mr Johnson and Tories currently have 36%. This is one less than in the previous survey.
This is the latest Survation survey since 2019 to place Labour at the front of the poll.
These numbers will likely alarm Number 10, as the PM attempts to calm the ship in the midst of ongoing uncertainty about the Coronavirus crisis due to the spreading of Omicron variant.
According to the survey, the Liberal Democrats rank third with 9 percent.
Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP has 5%, while Reform UK and the Green Party have 3%.
