At the start of campaigning a number of polls gave the Conservatives nearly double the vote share compared to Labour - indicating a landslide victory that would have significantly strengthened Prime Minister Theresa May's working majority in the House of Commons.
May, by contrast, has underwhelmed with stale speeches and a policy U-turn. In practice, the threshold for a majority is around 323, because the Irish nationalist Sinn Fein party takes up no seats that it wins in Northern Ireland. It is rather that, unlike Cameron, she takes the center for granted and has chose to compete with the United Kingdom Independence Party. Ukip support has collapsed and is on the brink of extinction.
The manifesto's commitment to trade unions and workers' rights is another reason for Labour's rebounding popularity.
These are the people who believe in snatching food out of children's mouths and slashing the education budget, because making sure our kids (that our future prospects as a nation will rely on) are well fed and well educated is obviously "leftie do-gooder nonsense" and "political correctness gone mad".

It'll be interesting to see if Rihanna makes it to any more of the finals games - and if Kevin will be throwing any more glares. The Warriors did what they were supposed to do in Game 1 , taking care of business on their home court against the underdog.
Labour's manifesto launch might have motivated left-wing voters to take part in online polls, skewing the sample of those who voted Labour in 2015 toward people who will vote for it now. Both are less likely to turn out.
But despite starting off strongly ahead in polls, the Conservative Party has been losing ground in recent days. It is not Corbyn, however, but Brexit which will make him vote Conservative next week for the first time in his life.
Voters also say that Labour has had the best policies and the best campaign. Labour have also detailed they would allow the deficit to increase, through debt issuance, however, by and large the fact we have seen GBP fall at times when we have seen Labour closing the gaps in the polls details a market that will sell GBP on a hung parliament and this scenario could see cable into £1.2500 to £1.2600.
She repeatedly attacked Labour's "magic money tree" policies.
A nurse, who said she had seen a real terms cut in her pay over the past seven years, asked the Prime Minister why she was not investing in the NHS amid heckling from other guests.
Latest Election Forecasts Weigh on GBP Prospect

"He was saying to the world, advertising that if it came to nuclear blackmail from Iran, North Korea or anywhere else that he would be vulnerable to that blackmail because he'd never press the button", Mr Johnson said. During the miners' strike in the 1980s, Nottinghamshire miners refused to strike without a national strike ballot.
These are the people who "wargasm" at Theresa May's policy of using nuclear weapons as first strike attack weapons (rather than as a nuclear deterrent), and consider Jeremy Corbyn a unsafe madman for saying he would never trigger nuclear Armageddon by launching a nuclear strike first! Only past year, he called for a power-sharing agreement with Argentina, which continues to claim the archipelago in the South Atlantic despite losing the 1982 war.
