The latest ICM poll, surveying a random sample of 1001 adults, shows Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party drawing level on 36% with the Conservatives.

Labour increased their share by four points compared to last month, whilst the Conservatives suffered a drop of three in this latest poll.

ICM point to an unprecedented level of division within the Conservative Party over Europe as the main reason for falling Tory support. ICM state that “there’s nothing worse than party disunity to prompt a polling freefall.”

The latest results will be a big boost to Jeremy Corbyn, and a huge blow to the so-called ‘moderate’ Labour MP Dan Jarvis who is rumoured to be preparing a leadership bid later this year.

Obviously it must be stated that this poll may well be a one-off, with ICM noting that “The word ‘rogue’ is too often used in polling analysis, but in our view it is hard to believe this phone poll will escape such labelling.”

However, should polling continue to favour a resurgence in Labour Party support, it should be enough to appease those in the Labour Party unhappy with the direction the Party is headed under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership.

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.
