Opinion poll round-up on day 12 of the election campaign

One new opinion poll was published over the weekend, and it suggested Labour continues to enjoy a large lead over the Conservatives.

The survey by Opinium, carried out among 2,184 UK adults online from Wednesday May 29 to Friday May 31, gives Labour a lead of 20 percentage points.

The figures are Labour 45%, Conservative 25%, Reform 11%, Liberal Democrats 8%, Green 6%, SNP 3% and other parties 2%.

A simple average of all polls that were carried out wholly or partly during the seven days to June 3 puts Labour on 45%, 22 percentage points ahead of the Conservatives on 23%, followed by Reform on 12%, the Lib Dems on 9% and the Greens on 6%.

These figures are broadly unchanged on the averages for the previous seven days to May 27, which were Labour 45%, Conservative 24%, Reform 11%, Lib Dems 10% and Green 5%.

On May 22, the day Rishi Sunak called the General Election, the seven-day averages stood at Labour 45%, Conservative 24%, Reform 11%, Lib Dems 9% and Green 6%.
