YouGov: Con 46, Lab 30, Lib Dem 11, UKIP 5, Green 2, SNP 6
The polls remain remarkably stable, showing a dominant lead for the Conservative Party. The most recent poll, released by YouGov, finds it 16 points ahead. Labour’s position is also largely unchanged, with the party polling at around 30 per cent since the announcement of the General Election.
The main questions remain around the performance of the smaller parties, whose popularity is often hard to determine and even harder to equate to electoral performance in terms of the number of seats they will get.
