The first YouGov poll following the snap General Election saw Theresa May enjoying a substanial lead in the polls – leading the Conservative Part with a 24% lead over the Labour Party with 48% compared to 24%. However, in the subsequent polls, it has seemed as if the Labour Party are regaining support across the nation, as in the latest YouGov poll (April 27-28), the gap has been narrowed; with the Conservatives leading by 17%, with Labour reducing the gap by 10 points.

The Conservatives once led the Labour Party by 23 points, and now only lead the Labour Party by 13 points, though even this is enough to secure a landslide victory for Theresa May. Only time will tell if Labour are able to close the gap even further, and potentially overtake the Conservatives in these polls – something which woould be considered a “political shock” – such as Brexit, and Donald Trump’s victory was.
