There has been little substantive change in the polls over the weekend, with the Conservatives still very much dominating this contest and retaining a lead of at least 15 points over Labour.

Though Labour remains relatively close to the 30.4 per cent it secured at the last election, the main story continues to be the virtual destruction of UKIP. With the party’s projected vote share collapsing to around five per cent at the local elections, it seems that any hope of a UKIP resurgence has lapsed.
