Theresa May is ramping up her campaign efforts, promising a “strong and stable leadership” that will deliver Brexit and solve the NHS crisis.
“I called a General Election because I believe the British people have a right to vote and to say who they want to see leading them through the Brexit negotiation,” mrs May said during a Question Time interview.
“I believe they should have a Prime Minister who has an absolute resolute determination to respect their will.
“My Party is the only party that is going to respect the will of the British people get on with the job and deliver a successful Brexit.”
How many seats will the Conservatives win?
The latest YouGov polls and figures, predict that the Conservatives could hold onto 313 seats in Parliament – 27 seats less than the 330 when Parliament was dissolved on May 3.
This figure is estimated based on an expected 42 per cent of the vote, from polls up until June 2.
But Martin Baxter of the Electoral Calculus has a more favourable prediction for the Tories, predicting Theresa May could secure an additional 32 seats for a total of 362.

Mr Baxter also warned that Mrs May’s end results could be swayed by poll errors and camping swing.
"The polls are not exact and poll error has averaged around 3pc in the last twenty-five years,” he said.
“However the polls have normally understated the Conservative vote rather than exaggerating it.
“Even if the polls overstate the Conservatives this time, the poll error would have to be 6pc or more to deprive them of a majority.”
