Theresa May: Back my vision of brighter Brexit future

They showed Theresa May's party might lose 20 of the 330 seats it holds, with Jeremy Corbyn's Labour gaining almost 30 seats.

Betfair's Katie Baylis, said there was "no doubt" Labour was closing the gap in the polls, "which is a sentiment that's also being reflected in the odds".

Wednesday opened with yet another 0,5% nosedive for the Pound, as the latest poll indicates that the Conservatives may be slipping away from an outright majority in the forthcoming June 8 elections.

That could leave the Conservatives 16 seats short of the overall majority of 326 needed to govern without the support of other parties, the newspaper said.

If May does not handsomely beat the 12-seat majority Cameron won in 2015, her electoral gamble will have failed, her ability to drive Brexit reform through parliament will be diminished and she will go into talks later this month looking weaker.

Much of the Pound's rally through the April-May period has been premised on the assumption that Theresa May would gain a stronger majority in Parliament which would allow her a firm hand in upcoming Brexit negotiations. That was, after all, the reason she announced the vote.

The British pound fell against the US dollar after the news of the study broke.

Seven polls carried out since the May 22 Manchester attack have shown May's lead over the Labour Party narrowing.

Why British PM won't attend TV debate
The Conservatives enjoyed a 20-point lead at the start of the campaign but this has now fallen into single figures. The prime minister has spoken out to defend herself for failing to attend the election debate on BBC One.

That fall came as the poll lead narrowed in the wake of a climbdown over controversial plans to make some elderly people pay a greater share over their care costs.

Unfortunately for Labour, the Conservatives are winning on both.

YouGov updates its model forecast daily, and said it conducted 6,858 interviews with potential voters on May 31, and a total 53,611 over the past week.

But he said: "The fact that we do not know if Theresa May is going to make it is the big thing that has changed from three weeks ago".

Calling a hung parliament a "nightmare scenario for May", Wilson said the failure to secure a majority could trigger a leadership contest for the Conservative Party.

In contrast to YouGov's model, other projections suggested May would win soundly.

Betting markets give a more than 80-percent probability of May winning an overall majority, though betting markets were wrong ahead of the unexpected Brexit result in the June 23 referendum a year ago.
