Conservatives’ last-minute climb as ‘Leavers’ losing faith in Labour and turning to the Tories

The Tories are pulling away from Labour as the election finish-line approaches, according to an exclusive poll that has the Conservative lead at nine points. 

A Labour surge throughout May appears to have been reversed in the last week, according to The Telegraph’s election tracker. 

Some 45 per cent of voters now back the Tories, according to ORB International – up one point. Labour is on 36 per cent – down two points. 

That means that the Conservative hold a nine-point lead going into the final week of campaigning, up from six points a week earlier.
