The Labour Party continues to close the gap with the Conservatives. Though the gap is still 15 points, the Labour Party has reached 34% – higher than the 2015 general election, with the Tories on 49%
This is an 8 point boost, as in April they were on 26% – just over a quarter of the electorate. The Conservatives haven’t moved as they have remained on 49% in both April and May (click here for the poll).
This boost could be due to popular policies in Labour’s recently launched manifesto.
In the same poll, the Greens have overtaken UKIP, as UKIP collapses to 2%, while the Greens shot up from 1% to 3% from April to May.
Another significant find is that the Liberal Democrats dropped by 6%, from 13% in April to 7% in May. This could spell bad news for Labour as they would be counting on the Liberal Democrats taking off some seats from the Conservatives, so they would hope the drop in the poll for the Lib Dems are swing Labour-Lib Dem voters in key seats.
