With just one week to go until the General Election, the contest has never been tighter.
Labour are seeing a surge of support in the polls, with some showing them just three points behind the Conservatives – an increase from the 20 point deficit they had at the start of the campaign.
But it’s not just the party ratings that are seeing a shift – the perceptions of who would make the best Prime Minister have also altered.

According to polling company YouGov, 43% of people believe Mrs May would make the best PM, compared to 30% who opted for Mr Corbyn.
While still behind, the figure for Mr Corbyn is a marked improvement as he was polling lower than ‘don’t know’ when the election was called.
Currently 27% of voters are undecided as to who would be better in charge of the country.
While the results may make officials in Tory HQ a little nervous, they can perhaps take some comfort in the figures.
Mr Corbyn is thought to have had a good campaign so far, with praise for his interview on The One Show alongside Labour seemingly pulling in more support.
Mrs May has been hit by a disastrous Tory manifesto launch, which caused controversy over a policy on social care, which forced a u-turn just a few days later.
Despite their differing fortunes, Mrs May commands a somewhat comfortable lead in the best PM ratings and some pollsters argue that voters will cast their ballots for a leader in a ‘presidential’ contest rather than the party.
Only the results on June 8 will tell us for sure…
