Poll gives UK Conservatives big lead ahead of June election | Reuters

LONDON British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party maintained a strong lead over the main opposition Labour Party, ahead of a June 8 national election, according to an ORB opinion poll for The Telegraph.

The Conservatives were at 46 percent, unchanged from ORB’s previous poll, against Labour’s 32 percent, up 1 percent.

The poll put the centrist Liberal Democrats on 8 percent and the anti-European Union UK Independence Party at 7 percent, both down 1 percent.

ORB surveyed 1,508 voters. Its interviews were carried out before the leak of the Labour manifesto on Wednesday.
