The U.K. is now in the final days of campaigning ahead of the Dec. 12 general election. Polls in Sunday’s newspapers all give Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservatives a clear lead over Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party, though they differ by how much.
The poll — which surveyed 10,000 people and was commissioned by anti-Brexit group Vote for a Final Say — suggested 44% of Labour supporters who back remaining in the European Union were willing to vote for the Liberal Democrats where they are best-placed to beat the Conservatives. Meanwhile, 39% of Liberal Democrat supporters were prepared to do the same if Labour are best-placed.
Polls in the Sunday newspapers all put Johnson’s Conservatives in the lead, although one projection suggested a huge Tory landslide is as possible as a hung Parliament.
A projection by Datapraxis in the Sunday Times, in which a YouGov poll gave the Tories a 10-point lead, put the cushion at 38 seats. Its previous analysis put the majority at 48, and the organization warned that as many as 90 constituencies are still up for grabs.
A Savanta ComRes poll for The Sunday Telegraph, showed that the Tories’ lead fell to 8 percentage points, back to where it was shortly before the starting pistol was officially fired on the campaign. That would be enough for a parliamentary majority of 14, the report said.
