Labour loses ground in final polls with May set for majority


Labour has dipped slightly in a final set of pre-election polls.

The Tories registered leads of between seven and 12 points in the final surveys, published last night.

If the polls were proved right then Theresa May’s party would be likely to score a majority of between 40 and 100.

The Times estimated that its seven point Tory lead would give the governing party a majority of 48, after using the Electoral Calculus website and assuming an even swing, while the ICM/Guardian survey could hand May 96-seat advantage.
