The Conservatives were at 48 percent, down 2 percent from Comres’ previous poll published on April 23, against Labour’s 30 percent, an increase of 5 points.

The poll put the centrist Liberal Democrats on 10 percent, down 2 percent, and the anti-European Union UK Independence Party at 5 percent, also down 2 percent.

Comres interviewed 2,007 British adults online between May 10 and May 12.
