According to BritainElects on Twitter, Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party have surged ahead of the Conservatives in the latest opinion poll carried out by YouGov.

The Poll shows the Conservatives down four points on previous polls, whilst Labour have improved their tally by the same margin. Both UKIP and the Lib Dems remain unchanged.

This follows a similar poll carried out by ICM last week that showed Labour were gaining ground on the Conservatives.

ICM mentioned that their poll may only have been a ‘rogue’, and this would be confirmed as such if the trend of Labour’s resurgence in popularity did not continue.

However, YouGov’s Anthony Wells says of the latest poll “People were understandably wary of reading too much into one poll (the ICM poll), but we now have two polls both showing Labour and the Conservatives neck-and-neck, suggesting something is genuinely afoot.”

This latest poll represents the first time that Labour have been ahead of the Conservatives since before the general election, and critics of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership will have been dealt a big blow by the latest numbers.

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.
