Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party has jumped to a double-digit lead over its closest rival, Labour, in the upcoming European election, and has three times the support of the Conservatives, who continue to lose ground, a poll has found. With the EU Parliament election, set for May 23, inching closer, Farage’s anti-EU party has taken pole position, leading with 34 percent thanks to a six-point increase in voter support from two weeks ago, a new Opinium poll commissioned by the Observer has revealed. While the Brexit Party and Labour shared first place with 28 percent in the last poll, Jeremy Corbyn’s party has since lost seven points, while Farage’s newest political creation pulled ahead and is now separated from its closest rival by a 13-percent gap.
