(Bloomberg) -- The U.K.’s Conservative Party’s lead over the opposition Labour Party narrowed this week as the campaign for the Dec. 12 general election picked up steam.
The ruling Conservatives had 41% support compared with 29% for Labour, according to Opinium’s poll issued Saturday for the Observer newspaper. The Tories were at 42% last week and Labour at 26%.
The Liberal Democrats were third, with 15%, followed by the Brexit Party at 6% and the Scottish National Party at 5%.
The online survey of 2,001 U.K. adults was carried out from Nov. 6 to 8.
There’s a 9-in-10 chance that the true value of a party’s support lies within 4 points of the estimates provided by the poll, and a 2-in-3 chance that they are within 2 points, according to Opinium.
