LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s lead over the opposition Labour Party has widened to 10 points, up from seven a few days ago, according to a Savanta ComRes poll for the Sunday Telegraph newspaper on Saturday ahead of the Dec. 12 election.

Support for Johnson’s Conservative Party rose by two points to 43% since the previous Savanta ComRes poll which was published on Wednesday, the polling firm said.

Labour fell by one point to 33%, the pro-European Union Liberal Democrats were flat on 13% and the Brexit Party was down one point at 4%.

Savanta ComRes said its latest poll was conducted between Nov. 27 and 28, before an attack on Friday by a man who killed two people before being shot dead by police on London Bridge.

Several other polls published recently have shown the Conservatives’ lead over Labour narrowing.
