Political Polling
23rd May 2017

The Conservative poll lead has dropped even further, this time by three points. The Tories are now 10 points ahead of Labour, down from 19 at the start of the campaign.

The Conservatives are on 45% (down 1 point from last week), while Labour are on 35% (up 2 points).

UKIP remains in fourth place on 5% (unchanged), with the Lib Dems in third place on 7% (down 1 point).

Theresa May’s approval ratings have dropped from last week (down from +17% to +11%), while Jeremy Corbyn’s rises from net -18% to -11%.

Over two in five (43%) think that Theresa May would be the best prime minister (down from 45%). On the other hand 26% say Jeremy Corbyn would make the best prime minister (up from 22% last week).

Despite the declining gap between Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn, the gap is larger than the equivalent gap between David Cameron and Ed Miliband at a similar stage in the campaign.
