Latest YouGov Westminster voting intention figures

The latest YouGov/Times voting intention survey sees the Conservatives extend their lead over Labour to twelve percentage points, with the Tories now on 34% (from 32% last week) to Labour's 22% (unchanged). Where before Labour and the Lib Dems had been almost neck and neck (on 22% and 21% last week respectively), there now exists a five point gap between the two parties, with the Lib Dems falling back to 17% of the vote.

Elsewhere, the Brexit Party holds 13% of the vote (from 12%) and the Greens likewise have 8% (from 7%).

In terms of who the public think would make the best Prime Minister, Britons are twice as likely to prefer Boris Johnson to Jeremy Corbyn. Four in ten (40%) think that the Conservative leader is the better of the two politicians, while only 20% say the same of the Labour leader.
