A new opinion poll conducted by Savanta ComRes suggests that the Welsh Conservatives are gaining ground on Welsh Labour on the eve of the election.


This is the second poll today to suggest that the Tories are closing the gap with Labour.


The latest poll suggest a similar outlook to the YouGov poll published earlier today, where Labour were polling at 36% in the constituencies and the Tories at 29%.


This is also the second poll today to suggest a fall in support for Plaid Cymru. In the ComRes poll, Plaid dropped 1% point in the constituencies, while YouGov's earlier poll showed the party down -4% points— beyond the margin of error.


Constituency voting intention (with changes on previous poll):


LAB: 36% (-)

CON: 28% (+1)

PC: 18% (-1)

LDEM: 6% (+1)

ABOLISH: 3% (-1)


Regional list (with changes on previous poll):


The polling for the regional list puts the Wales Green Party on 5%, which would be the party's highest ever polling in a Senedd election. However, it looks unlikely that the party will gain its first ever Senedd member.


LAB: 32% (+1)

CON: 25% (+1)

PC: 19% (-2)

ABOLISH: 6% (-2)

GRN: 5% (+2)

LDEM: 5% (-)

REFUK: 3% (-)
