New polling data has shown Theresa May's Conservatives extending their advantage over the Labour party.
Asked who they would vote for in a general election, 44 per cent of Britons told the pollster they would back the Conservatives, compared to just 28 per cent for Labour.
44 per cent also marks the highest vote share for the Tories for more than seven years.
ICM's data has the party reaching 45 per cent on just three occasions - twice during the financial crash when Gordon Brown was in office, and once in 1992 after John Major's election victory.
The Conservatives also enjoy a lead amongst every social grade, including the least affluent in society, and amongst all age groups except the 18-24s.
