The latest YouGov poll shows that the Conservative Party holds a slight lead in the event of a general election at 25%, as Boris Johnson is expected to be announced as the next Prime Minister of the U.K.
This is a one percent uptick from the last poll where the Conservative Party held 24% support.
The latest poll shows the Labour Party in second with 21%, with also a one percent uptick from 20%. The Liberal Democrats have 19% support, losing one percent support, and the Brexit Party have 19%, a two percent drop from the 21% they had in the last poll.
