LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservative Party has taken a 3 percentage point lead over the opposition Labour Party, according to a Survation poll for The Mail on Sunday newspaper ahead of the May 7 election.
The poll put the Conservatives up 3 percentage points on 33 percent, with support for Labour dropping 4 percentage points to 30 percent.
With less than two weeks to go before the May 7 election, most opinion polls have shown voters fairly evenly split between Britain’s two main political parties, meaning neither is likely to win enough seats to hold a clear parliamentary majority.
The poll put support for the anti-European Union UK Independence Party (UKIP) at 18 percent, while support for the Liberal Democrats, the junior partner in the coalition, was at 9 percent. The Greens were on 4 percent.
