Labour set to fall behind the Tories in Wales, new poll claims

The poll found 40 percent of voters asked planned to support the Conservatives, up 12 percentage points from the last poll in January, while Labour were down 3 points on 30 percent.

Plaid Cymru, the Welsh nationalists, were third on 13 percent with the Liberal Democrats on 8 percent and UKIP on 6 percent.

"The Conservatives appear to be on course to win the majority of Welsh parliamentary seats for the first time in the democratic era, while Labour faces losing a general election in Wales for the first time since 1918".

48% of Brits intend to vote for May's Conservatives in June, while 25% plan to back Jeremy Corbyn's Labour.

The online poll, for ITV Cymru Wales and Cardiff University's Wales Governance Centre, had a sample of 1,029 Welsh adults and was carried out by YouGov from 19-21 April 2017.

The Conservative party has not won a majority of Welsh seats since the 1850s.

A leading professor in political science has said the election in June could result in an "unprecedented" result in Wales after a poll shows the Tories have edged ahead of Labour.

Only 2% of UKIP 2015 voters say they'll switch to Labour. The UKIP vote has collapsed by seven points, and the Lib Dems have lost one point of support.

"We need a general election and we need one now".

Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones can take solace in the fact that his personal poll ratings have increased slightly, but not as much as May's, who is more popular than any of the other leaders.

Figures show UKIP supporters flocking to the Conservatives and knocking Labour into second place.
