London: Theresa May’s Conservative Party held a 19 percentage point lead over Labour Party in a poll by research group Opinium on Saturday, helped by a slide in support for the main opposition party and the anti-EU group UKIP ahead of a June election.

According to an online poll of 2,003 voters carried out on 19 and 20 April, some 45% of voters said they would vote for the ruling Conservative Party, up 7% on last week and before May called a national election for 8 June.

Support for Labour stood at 26%, down 3 percentage points, while UKIP, a key force in steering Britain to vote to leave the European Union, were down 5 points at 9%. The Liberal Democrats edged up 4 points to 11%. Reuters
