Jeremy Corbyn has closed the gap with Theresa May in the first poll conducted since the Manchester Bombing.
THE Tories’ poll lead has been slashed to just five points as campaigns resume after the Manchester bombing.
A new survey from YouGov puts Theresa May’s party on 43%, down one point since the previous week.
But over the same period Labour have gained three points, putting them on 38% and in striking distance of victory.
Jeremy Corbyn has also gained ground in the crucial question of whether he or Mrs May would make a better Prime Minister.
Mrs May is still ahead on 45%, but Corbyn has picked up five points in a week, with 28% thinking he’d make the better PM.
The poll comes at the end of a pause in campaigning following the Manchester bombing, which killed 22 people including children on Tuesday.
