PRIME Minister Theresa May’s call for an early election in June could see her win the most powerful Tory majority in post-war history.

No Tory party in Government has been so far ahead in the polls this close to a General Election – and, if the figures translated into votes, the result would eclipse even Margaret Thatcher’s famous post Falklands victory in 1983, which saw the Tories secure 397 seats.

Indeed, the result could be the biggest Tory landslide in history.

According to the latest YouGov poll, the Conservatives would win 44 per cent of the vote – almost double Labour’s 23 per cent.

These figures put Mrs May’s party further ahead of Labour than they have been at any other point in almost a decade – and the greatest lead while in government since Margaret Thatcher’s second victory.

No other Conservative government in modern times has been this far ahead of the main opposition party 51 days from a general election on June 8.

Regular polling in the UK began after the Second World War.

Since then only three Conservative prime ministers have called an election while leading by more than five points in the polls: Harold Macmillan in 1959, Mrs Thatcher in 1983 and 1987, and Mrs May in 2017.

This historic lead will come as a fresh blow to Jeremy Corbyn, as his party continues to languish at the hands of the increasingly popular female Prime Minister.
