Tories increase polling lead, finds Survation

The Conservative Party has stretched its lead over Labour as the campaign enters its final three days, according to a new poll from Survation.

The polling, conducted  for Good Morning Britain, put the Tories 14 points ahead of Labour, a jump of five points in a week.

It puts support for the Tories at 45 per cent, an increase of three points, with Labour down two on 31 per cent.

The Lib Dems remain on 11 per cent, the Brexit Party is up one point to four per cent and the Greens have fallen to two per cent.

If repeated on Thursday, those figures would be enough to give Johnson a comfortable Commons majority.

Meanwhile, a BMG Research poll for The Independent also shows the Conservatives increasing their lead over Labour.

It puts the Tories up two points on 41 per cent, with Labour down one point to 32 per cent.

Robert Struthers, BMG's head of polling, said Labour's efforts to hoover up Remain voters had "stalled".

He said: "Now, with four days left before polling day, there is little time for Labour to shift the dial."

Sir John Curtice told Radio Four's Westminster Hour: "The Tory lead of 10 points is not that far ahead of the six-point figure, which is the point at which you say there’s a 50 per cent chance of a hung Parliament.

"It’s held steady so far and the Tories have managed to retain their position but those last three days could still make a difference."
