Labour’s lead over the Conservative Party has dropped to 13pts, according to the latest voting intention poll from Savanta.
The poll, conducted over the last weekend (26-28 May), sees Labour on 44% of the vote, down two points from the week before, and the Conservatives on 31%, up one point.
This represents a three point drop from the previous poll, the lowest Labour lead since April. All changes are, however, within the statistical margin of error.
The Liberal Democrats remain on 9% in this national opinion poll, a vote share unchanged in the previous five Savanta polls.
According to polling aggregator Electoral Calculus, these results would give Labour a 128 seat majority if they played out at a General Election.
Commenting on the findings, Chris Hopkins, Political Research Director at Savanta said, “Not any movement here to get too excited about, given all changes are within the margin of error, and it’s difficult to know what would be driving such change beyond natural variance.
“Neither major party, nor their leaders, have had an especially good or bad week, and therefore this doesn’t feel like the start of a trend or any sustained movement in a particular direction.”
