Labour still has a 19-point lead going into the general election as time is running out for the Tories, a poll has suggested.

A Redfield and Winton survey put Labour on 41 per cent UK-wide. This is well ahead of the Tories on 22 per cent.

This would mean that Labour would win a huge majority of seats, with Keir Starmer becoming prime minister.

The Tories are also facing one of their worst electoral defeats if the poll is true.

Reform UK got 16 per cent in the sruvey. The Lib Dems were on 10 per cent with the Greens on six per cent.

The SNP were on three per cent across the UK.

It comes with less than 48 hours before voters go to the polls.

Labour has head a roughly 20 point lead since Tory Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced the election six weeks ago.

The poll was conducted with an extra-large sample of 20,000 people between Friday, June 28 and Monday, July 2.

Labour's vote share went down by one per cent from the pollster's survey last week. The Tories were up three per cent, while Reform's share went down by two per cent.

The Lib Dems also went down by one per cent, while the Greens went up by one per cent.

But the Tories remain well behind Labour with plenty of ground to make up.

Just 46 per cent of those who voted Conservative in 2019 said they would vote for them this time round.

Some 23 per cent of 2019 Tory voters are backing Reform, while 19 are voting Labour.
