[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The latest Welsh Political Barometer poll published today shows support for Labour in Wales has surged in the last two weeks.

Conservative momentum in Wales appears to have gone into reverse writes Professor Roger Scully from Cardiff University’s Wales Governance Centre.

‘The first two (Welsh Political Barometer) polls of this campaign showed clear Conservative party leads in Wales, and indicated that the Tories were on course for an historic electoral breakthrough. Our new poll once again asked people how they would vote in the forthcoming general election.’

The poll published today asked people how they would vote in the forthcoming general election.

“This is broadly in line with the Britain-wide polls, which have generally been showing a narrowing of the gap between the Conservatives and Labour in recent days” says Prof Scully.

“But the extent of the Labour rise, and Conservative fall, are rather greater in Wales, and are sufficient to put Labour back into a significant lead in Wales. Meanwhile, as was seen in our previous poll, the smaller parties continue to be squeezed: Plaid Cymru are down two more points, and the Liberal Democrats a further one, on our last poll two weeks ago.”
