Against all the odds, a new poll of Welsh voters has revealed that Labour have completely reversed their fortunes in Wales. While polls prior to the Conservative manifesto launch had them trailing the Tories by six points, this latest poll has indicated a HUGE swing to Labour, who are now leading by ten points. 

After the release of the uncosted, fox-killing, elderly-freezing Tory manifesto, national polls have also indicated that Labour are gaining support at the expense of the Conservatives. It is clear that the public are seeing the Conservatives for what they really are after the release of their manifesto, with Labour seeing a 4% jump nationally in polls where the fieldwork was completed after Theresa May’s shambolic launch last week.

However, this increase in Wales is unlike anything that we’ve seen over this election so far. The huge swing towards Labour questions the theory that Corbyn is putting Labour’s traditional heartlands at risk by pursuing a left-wing manifesto. In reality, the vast majority of the public support Labour’s manifesto, and this latest poll indicates that the Welsh public are flocking to Jeremy Corbyn now the two policy programmes are being compared and contrasted on TV screens across the country.

While local election results in Wales earlier this month were not particularly inspiring for Corbyn’s camp, they will be delighted to see that they have not only made up lost ground but hammered the Conservatives into second place with a significant lead – in a matter of weeks.

With Labour only eight points behind nationally – who is to say that they can’t make up that deficit exactly like they have done in Wales? This extraordinary poll is a slap in the face to every single pundit who wrote Corbyn’s Labour off not only in Wales, but in this election altogether. 

One thing is clear: despite the ferocious Tory smears of Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party – they have all the momentum. Only today, Theresa May had to backtrack over (but not scrap) the so-called ‘dementia tax’. This move has been ridiculed by Labour, who claim that May’s government is one of “chaos and confusion”, not strength and stability. 

There is an evident correlation – as more people see Theresa May and her policy programme in full, gory detail, more people are also flocking to Corbyn’s Labour . With only two and a half weeks left until polling day, the race is on. It could well be the most important two and a half weeks in British political history.

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.
