1st August 2017

Data from the British Election Study is reported here in this article from Ed Fieldhouse and Chris Prosser at the University of Manchester.

It finds that Labour, which was already the most popular party in 2015 among those who voted Remain in 2016, scooped the lion's share of votes in June 2017.

Lots more information in the article about the shifting sands of voting intentions during the campaign itself.
