Labour have recorded their highest polling score since the plot to topple leader Jeremy Corbyn failed in September 2016. The figure of 32% is also a bigger percentage than Labour attained at the last general election under former leader Ed Miliband.

The poll from ORB shows the Conservatives maintaining a healthy lead over Labour, but with the imminent release of their manifesto, the Labour camp is optimistic that they can build on their recent success and generate even more support off the back of hugely popular manifesto policies in time for polling day on June 8th.

Further polling indicates that a vast majority of the general public are in favour of Labour’s leaked manifesto commitments such as renationalising the railways and raising taxes on those earning over £80,000 a year.

Furthermore, a commitment made by Theresa May to allow a free vote on legalising fox hunting has gone down like a lead balloon with the general public, with 84% of the public wanting the blood sport to remain illegal.

Labour have just 4 weeks to make up a 14 point gap on the Conservatives, but having already eaten into the the Tories’ lead in the first two weeks of campaigning, the current trajectory shows that this election could be a lot closer than the mainstream media are predicting.

Evolve needs your help more than ever.

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
