"After an impressive performance in last week’s European Parliament elections, our latest polling for The Times has the Liberal Democrats in first place on 24%, marginally ahead of the second-placed Brexit Party on 22% (whose ranking at any other time would have been a story in itself). Meanwhile the Conservatives and Labour are in joint third on 19%," the pollster said in a press release.
According to the YouGov data, 8 percent of UK voters said they would cast their ballot for the Green Party. The UK Independence Party (UKIP) and the Change UK – The Independent Group party both garnered 1 percent of the voters’ support.
The poll was conducted among 1.763 UK adults on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Earlier in May, the Tories’ rating hit nearly 20-year low amid uncertainty over Brexit. The instability around the Conservatives was also exacerbated by May's decision to resign on June 7.
