General Election 2017: All the latest as Britain goes to the polls

June 8, 2017

After a whirlwind campaign, the public will decide today who the next Prime Minister will be, and who will form the country’s next parliament.

 

  • The polls opened this morning at 7am

  • The latest opinion polls predict a win for Theresa May

  • The race has tightened since the snap election was called in April

  • Some experts have warned of the possibility of a hung parliament

  • Exit polls are expected at around 10pm

The Prime Minister shocked the country when she called a snap general election seven weeks ago after promising numerous times not to do so.

Initial number crunching by the pollsters predicted a landslide victory for Theresa May’s party.

The week after the election was called the Tories were polling double the vote share of Labour, and Mrs May’s personal approval rating were at a record high.

But over the course of the campaign the picture has changed significantly. The Conservative lead has narrowed from a yawning 24 points to a rather more nerve-wracking three, according to YouGov.

The leak of the Labour manifesto was by no means the disaster it initially threatened to be, with policy promises going down well with voters.

The Conservative Party manifesto was launched with all the proper fanfare, but Theresa May’s social care policies in particular proved divisive, forcing the Prime Minister onto the back foot.

Mrs May’s no-show at the leaders’ debate, combined with a number of successful TV appearances from a jovial Corbyn, tightened the gap between the leaders, although Theresa May is still in pole position.

A few weeks after the election was called 54% of the public thought that Theresa May would make the best Prime Minister, whereas a dismal 15% thought the same of Jeremy Corbyn.

Less than two months later Mrs May has slipped to 43%, whereas 30% now think Corbyn would make the best PM.
