Whichever way you slice it, the Conservatives just don’t have enough support to win a Parliamentary majority now – according to the pollsters.*

We’re all aware of the YouGov poll that showed the Conservatives falling 16 seats short of a majority. That was a major upset for the Tory campaign and – if confirmed on election day – would seal Theresa May’s doom as one of the shortest-tenured prime ministers in UK history.

Two new polls show the Tory lead narrowed to just three points: The latest from YouGov –

– and an unweighted poll published by the Huffington Post, on which Aaron Bastani elaborates here:

I support his suggested actions, by the way.

Where does this leave Theresa May?

Well, it leaves her exactly where she put herself: Out in the cold.

She wanted to make the election about Brexit – but her reluctance to face any kind of criticism means people have no reason to believe she can bring anything to the EU negotiating table:

Her manifesto promises are cruel to the poor and – most damningly – uncosted:

All she has for the people of the UK is waffle – as you can see in this interview with the Plymouth Herald:

It looks even worse when condensed down to the basics:

And now people have even started using the Tories’ own election material against them:

It is now entirely possible that Jeremy Corbyn can win the general election – if we can persuade enough senior citizens to vote in their own interests (against the winter fuel allowance cuts and the dementia tax), and if enough young people vote for theirs.

Whether those things happen or not, one thing is certain:

Theresa May has lost.

*You all know This Writer is sceptical of the polls. I remain so – although one of those mentioned in this article is unweighted and therefore more likely to be accurate.
