Tories expand their lead to 13 points in latest voting intention poll
The Conservatives have expanded their lead over Labour from 7 points to 13 points in our latest voting intention poll. 40% (+3) would vote Conservative in†a general election tomorrow, 27% (-3) would vote Labour, 14% UKIP (n/c) and 8% Lib Dem (n/c).
Leader Approval Ratings
Theresa May’s strong approval ratings remain unchanged while Jeremy Corbyn and, moreso, UKIP leader Paul Nuttall, have seen their ratings decline. Lib Dem leader Tim Farron is also largely unchanged.
In the wake of his recent controversies in Stoke, UKIP leader Paul Nuttall has seen the percentage disapproving of †his performance increase from 34% to 42%. With virtually no change in the percentage approving, this change comes largely from the bulk of voters who have no opinion about him forming a negative view.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has seen his numbers decline as well, from 20% approve/ 49% disapprove to 17% approve / 52% disapprove, taking his net rating from -29% to -35%.
