The Conservatives were at 47 percent, up 1 percent from Opinium’s previous poll a week ago, against Labour’s 32 percent, up 2 percent.

The poll put the centrist Liberal Democrats on 8 percent, down 1 percent, and the anti-European Union UK Independence Party at 5 percent, down 2 percent.

Opinium Research carried out an online survey of 2,003 UK adults from May 9 to May 12.
