The new YouGov poll has been released and it shows that Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party have managed to cut the Conservative poll lead to just single figures with just under 3 weeks of campaigning left to go until June 8th.

This latest YouGov poll was conducted during the 18th and 19th May which would have overlapped with the release of the Conservative manifesto. Therefore it is unlikely that we have seen the full effects of any looming backlash against Theresa May’s deeply unpopular policy announcements.

Also, with live TV debates looming large on the horizon for a noticeably shaky Theresa May, public opinion seems to be headed firmly in one direction – in favour of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour.

If polling continues on its current trajectory, it is becoming entirely plausible that Jeremy Corbyn could indeed be headed for number 10 on June 8th.

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.
