A devastating new YouGov poll for the European Elections has Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party leading with 34% and the Conservatives down to fifth.
Amazingly, Theresa May’s party fall behind not just the Brexit Party and Labour but the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party too, according to the new poll.
The combined Conservative and Labour vote share is down to just 26%. Astonishing stuff.
European Parliament voting intention:
BREX: 34% (+4)
LAB: 16% (-5)
LDEM: 15% (+5)
GRN: 11% (+2)
CON: 10% (-3)
CHUK: 5% (-4)

Broken down, the YouGov poll reveals that 67% of Leave voters are planning to back the Brexit Party, as are 62% of 2017 Tory voters and the party is on 40% in the South of England.
And it isn’t just the European Elections that would see a dramatic outcome. For Westminster, YouGov now have the Tories and Labour level on just 24% each, with the Brexit Party third on 18% and the LibDems up to 16%. This is dire for the two largest parties.
Westminster voting intention:
CON: 24% (-5)
LAB: 24% (-5)
BREX: 18% (+3)
LDEM: 16% (+3)
GRN: 7% (+2)

The failure of MPs to deliver Brexit is now resulting in a dramatic outcome in the polls as the EU Elections fast approach.
