British elections, polls predict Sunak's defeat
Three British opinion polls predict a certain defeat for Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's Conservative Party in the next general election.

The polls were released about halfway through the election campaign, a week after the Conservatives and Labor published their manifestos and just before voters start receiving postal ballots.

Research agency Savanta announced that Kier Starmer's Labor Party will have 46 percent of the vote, or two percent more than in the poll five days ago, while support for the Conservatives fell 4 percent to 21 percent. The poll was conducted from June 12-14 for the Sunday Telegraph.

"Our research suggests that this election could be nothing less than a blow to the Conservative Party," said Savanta's director of political research, Chris Hopkins.

A poll by the Survey agency, published by the Sunday Times, predicts that the Conservatives could win just 72 of the 650 seats in the House of Commons, the lowest in their nearly two-hundred-year history, while Labor will win 456 seats. Their survey was conducted from May 31 to June 13.

The third survey, conducted by "Opinium" for the Sunday Observer, was conducted from June 12-14 and showed that Labor has 40 percent, conservatives 23 percent and reformists 14 percent.
