Political Polling
16th May 2017

The Conservative poll lead has dropped again, this time by two points, with the party now 13 points ahead of Labour.

The Conservatives are on 46% (down 1 point from last week), while Labour are on 33% (up 1 point).

UKIP remains in fourth place on 5% (unchanged), with the Lib Dems in third place on 8% (unchanged).

Theresa May retains a positive net approval rating of +17%, with Jeremy Corbyn on net -18%.

Over two in five (45%) think that Theresa May would be the best prime minister (same as last week). On the other hand 22% say Jeremy Corbyn would make the best prime minister (from 19% last week).

This is the first time since Theresa May became prime minister that more selected Jeremy Corbyn as the best PM rather than select “neither” (22% vs 21% respectively).
