Polling for the Observer Shows Steep Fall in Labour Support

The Conservative Party have opened up a 7% lead over Labour in an opinion poll released by the Observer. It’s the biggest lead reported for Theresa May’s party since the 2017 General Election and shows a 6% fall for Labour from 40% to 34% and a 4% rise for the Conservatives from 37% to 41%.

The poll’s findings do differ widely from other recent polls, with the Observer noting that the Opinium poll for next month would show whether this shift is sustained or an aberration.
