The Observer said the poll suggested May still looked on course for a substantial majority in parliament.

May’s six-point lead compared with a lead of 10 percentage points in Opinium’s previous poll published on May 27.

Support for the Conservatives now stands at 43 percent, down two percentage points from a week ago, while Labour rose two points to 37 percent.
