?? GBP -  The much anticipated Yougov poll was released last night and results showed that if the election was today the conservative party would win 359 seats, which is up from 317 seats at the last election. This result would mean that Johnson gains a very healthy majority of 68, which is the Conservative’s largest in three decades.

The poll also predicted that the labour party would lose 51 seats and the Liberal Democrats would gain just one seat leaving them with a mere 13, showing that their anti-Brexit stance has backfired which highlights the fact that the British public want clarity rather than a reversal of the original democratic Brexit vote.

Corbyn before this has seemingly made steady gains throughout the last few days which has been shown on other opinion polls but needs a huge push over the next two weeks to defy odds and stop the conservatives gaining a very likely majority.

All eyes will now be on the first TV debate which is taking place tonight at 7pm
