Labour now more popular than Tory party, says survey

By Lizzy Buchan

Labour has overtaken the Tories in popularity following the shock General Election result, a new poll suggests.

Research by Survation for Good Morning Britain (GMB) gave Jeremy Corbyn's party a three point lead over the Conservatives, as 44% of respondents backed Labour, 41% opted for the Tories, and 6% for the Lib Dems.

Some 48% of people think Mrs May should remain Prime Minister while 45% want her to resign amid intense scrutiny of her leadership following the Tories' poor election result and the Grenfell Tower fire.

However, Mrs May was the party leader most people trusted to negotiate the best Brexit deal (52%) while 39% backed Mr Corbyn.
