Despite The Brexit Party and Change UK, Labour have just taken a 9-point lead over Tories

Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party have taken a huge 9-point lead over the Conservative Party in the latest Westminster voting intention poll.

The poll, conducted from May 9th to May 13th by Kantar Public, shows Labour polling at 34% of the vote, with the Conservatives plummeting 7 points to just 25%.

Meanwhile, Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party appear to be severely impacting the Tories’ figures, instantly jumping to 10% of the vote.

However, things are not so rosy on the other side of the Brexit divide, with the unequivocally anti-Brexit party, Change UK, polling at just 1%.

Elsewhere, the Lib Dems have followed up their successful Local Election results with a 4-point surge, jumping from 11% to 15% – whilst the Green Party have dropped a single point to 3%.

On the other side of the political divide, Nigel Farage’s former party, UKIP, appear to be becoming increasingly irrelevant, dropping 3 points, from 7% to just 4%.

Intriguingly, Kantar state that their figures for The Brexit Party and Change UK were “based on respondents that spontaneously named these parties as an “other” answer”.

Elsewhere in the wide-ranging poll, support for a public vote on any Brexit deal has dropped by 4 points, from 51% to 47% since April.
