Were there ever any Labour or even undecided voters reading the Daily Mail? I often see the Daily Mail as a reason for election results on this forum but I can’t imagine anyone reading it is not 100% Conservative voterOnce Starmer points out in detail his plan to absolutely decimate non-dom tax loopholes as well as potentially, a plan to reduce foreign ownership and influence of the UK press, the right wing press are going to launch the sort of catastrophic smear campaign that was thrown at Corbyn. I think the Mail had a 20 page anti-Corbyn special on day of the election last time.
You might want to see Starmer lay out his policies line by line but anyone inside the Labour Party with even the slightest grasp of election tactics will be urging Starmer to keep quiet as long as possible. The polls are fine for Labour, going after the 16% laggard vote at this point in time would be catastrophic in my opinion as anyone who has studied change management would tell you.

I haven’t studied change management and don’t understand your graph
The 2 policies you’ve mentioned (that would cause the Daily Mail to react) are policies that appeal mainly to hardline labour voters in the first place
The solutions the country needs and the policies that may well swing voters are in my view more likely to be NHS, Cost of Living, Immigration, education
