A poll released by one of the few companies to accurately predict the 2017 General Election, Survation, has given Labour a staggering six point lead against the Conservatives. In an election match up, Survation put Labour on 44%, with the Tories lagging behind on 38%.


Despite Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour opening up a wider lead against the Conservatives, according to Electoral Calculus – this would still put Labour five seats short of an overall majority, although they would be the largest party by a considerable margin.

The really interesting thing about this Survation poll and the Electoral Calculus prediction based off the results are the host of senior Conservatives who would lose their seats at the next election. Cabinet Ministers, potential leadership contenders and old stalwarts of the party are now all facing imminent defeat to Labour in their constituencies. Home Secretary Amber Rudd would lose her wafer-thin majority, while top Tories such as Stephen Crabb, Justine Greening, Nicky Morgan, Anna Soubry and former DWP axe-man Iain Duncan Smith would all suffer defeat at the hands of Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party if an election were held tomorrow. If Labour were to continue their momentum in the coming months and edge closer to 50% in the polls, the likes of Boris Johnson could also be in Corbyn’s sights come election time.

The Tories could be facing annihilation at the next election – with their top ranks absolutely decimated. See for yourself.

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.
