Labour close gap on Conservatives as Theresa May's lead over Jeremy Corbyn is cut to five points [View all]

Theresa May’s lead over Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour has been cut to five points after the Tory social care chaos.

A stunning poll put the Tories on 43% - but Labour on an astonishing 38%.

The Tories’ lead over Labour is now at it’s smallest since Theresa May became Prime Minister, polls suggest. The five point gap – down from 24 on the day the snap election was called – is the smallest lead the Tories have enjoyed since Theresa May became PM.

If repeated at the polls, the Tories may only lose seats, the Times claimed.

More worryingly for the Conservatives, the once huge 52 point gap between Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn‘s personal rating has been cut to 17 in a month.

Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party are now just five points behind Conservatives – their most popular since October 2014.

YouGov’s Anthony Wells said the stunning reversal in Tory fortune appeared to stem from the manifestos. But he added the Tories may have lost support in wake of the Manchester terror attacks.

He said: “It has been a highly unusual few days in an election campaign, arguably unlike any other in history.”
