The latest general election poll, carried out by YouGov for The Times, gives the Tories a 14-point lead over the Labour Party. The data collected from November 11-12, is the first time Boris Johnson’s party has achieved more than 40 percent of voting intention in a YouGov poll since the Brexit Party launched in February. The survey put the Tories on 42 percent, with Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party in second, on 28 percent.
The poll saw the Brexit Party take a nose dive, down from 9 percent to 4 percent, when compared to a poll taken just days earlier - on November 8.
The Lib Dems remain in third on 15 percent.
The research also reveals an increase in the two party vote share, which has hit 70 percent - the highest it has been in a YouGov poll since March.
Chris Curtis, who works for the polling company, said that in June the two party share was as low as 36 percent.

Yesterday Nigel Farage announced that he would not be standing any of his Brexit Party candidates in seats won by the Tories in the 2017 general election.
He said the party's climbdown came after months of trying to create a Leave alliance with the Tories and said he felt it was time to put the country before his party and make a "unilateral" move.
But Brexit Party candidates will still stand in Labour marginals, seats Mr Johnson needs to win in order to secure a parliamentary majority.
Mr Farage said: “The Brexit party will not contest the 317 seats the Conservatives won at the last election.
