Panelbase said support for the Conservatives rose by 1 percentage point to 48 percent compared with a poll it conducted last week, while support for Labour also rose by 1 point to 31 percent.

Support for the Liberal Democrats sank by 2 percentage points to 8 percent, and the UK Independence Party’s support remained unchanged at 5 percent.

Panelbase conducted its poll online between May 5 and May 9, and the results were based on a sample of 1,027 adults.
