Brexit Party Has More Support Than Britain's Main Parties

Perhaps even more troubling, polling for general election voting intentions shows the many people appear to plan on backing Mr Farage at in national as well as European elections - with the Brexit Party now outpointing the Conservatives in a ComRes poll.

In terms of progress, the second most powerful man in the Labour Party said nothing new had been put on the table, and in some cases the talks had gone backwards.

"A reminder that through most of Q1 the Conservatives were polling just under 40%".

Prime Minister Theresa May does not need to spell out a timetable for her departure, prisons minister Robert Buckland said on Sunday, adding the leader had already announced she would leave office after the first phase of Brexit. The Conservatives, on 22%, trail Labour in that survey by six percentage points and lead the Brexit party by just one point.

That level of support would see the Brexit Party win 49 seats, becoming the UK's second biggest party after Labour, with 137.

36% of respondents were not aware of the Conservative stance and 38% were not aware of Labour's.

The battle among leading Conservatives to replace Theresa May as prime minister threatens to derail talks with the Labour Party and the bid to find a Brexit compromise, Labour's John McDonnell said.

The Conservatives have slipped to a humiliating fifth place in London, according to a new opinion poll ahead of the European elections.

A senior British minister is warning that the upcoming European Parliament elections will be seen by some as "the ultimate protest vote opportunity", as polls suggest that populists could unseat Britain's mainstream parties amid the country's ongoing Brexit chaos.

The Tories have dropped another three points to stagger into fourth place with 11% support.

He said: "On the European elections, while the question of which party Brexit voters should back was settled some time ago, the equivalent for Remain voters is still ambiguous".

The Liberal Democrats are in third place on 15%, closely behind Labour on 16%, but the big frontrunners remain the Brexit Party, with 34%.

Opinium Research carried out an online survey of 2,004 United Kingdom adults over 18 years old between May 8 and 10 and results have been weighted.
