According to the latest poll by ICM the Tory lead over Labour has now narrowed to six points, which is significant as Boris Johnson needs a six-point lead to win enough seats to form a majority government.

Support for the Tory Party stood at 42% which has unchanged from last week’s poll, Labour stands at 36%, one point higher.

The Labour Party robbed Theresa May in 2017 of her majority as the gap dramatically closed with the Tories in the run up to polling day by 2.4%.

Johnson must not take anything for granted as celebrities such as Hugh Grant is urging tactical voting, Brexit is muddying the waters and last month saw a surge in registration to vote, the majority being younger people.

Since Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn announced their Brexit policy that also includes a second referendum, the Liberal Democrats are down by one point now standing at 12% and the Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party stands at 3%.

ICM surveyed 2,011 adults online for Reuters between 6 and 9 December.
