Tories’ turmoil leaves Jeremy Corbyn in poll position

THERESA MAY’S Conservatives have plunged nine points in the past month, according to an opinion poll.

The Tories can call on the support of just 32 per cent of the electorate, down from 41 per cent in March, according to the Kantar survey.

It gives Labour, led by Jeremy Corbyn (pictured) a three-point lead, with the Liberal Democrats on 11 per cent, Ukip on seven, followed by the SNP on five, the Greens on four and Plaid Cymru on one per cent.

More than half the public would like the government’s final Brexit deal to be put to a second referendum, the poll also finds. Fifty one per cent said they would like a vote to be held on the deal once negotiations between the government and the EU have ended, according to Kantar.

Thirty two per cent said they did not want a second referendum. Of those who voted Leave in 2016, 35 per cent want a second vote — compared with 67 per cent of Remainers.

A separate poll by Hanbury Strategy for May’s EU elections gives Labour a 15 point lead over the Tories, with Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party on ten per cent.

The survey for the Open Europe think tank puts Labour on 38 per cent with the Tories on 23 — which could be enough to give Labour another 30 MEPs and the centre-left a majority in the EU parliament.
