How many seats could Labour win?
Labour is still a long way behind the Conservatives despite the party's recent surge in popularity.
The most recent opinion polls are putting the Labour Party between six to 12 points behind the Conservatives.
An ICM poll for the Guardian placed Labour at 33 per cent, compared to the Tories’ 45 per cent.
When Parliament was dissolved on May 3, Labour had 229 seats in Westminster. The party won 232 seats in the 2015 election.
Based on recent polls, Martin Baxter, of the Electoral Calculus, has predicted that Labour could win 33.2 per cent of the vote and 203 seats on June 8.
Mr Baxter also predicted that the Conservatives could get 46.1 per cent of the vote and 373 seats, giving the Conservatives a majority of 96.
Baron Robert Hayward, a former Tory MP turned electoral analyst, predicts the Tories will win 30 seats by gaining the support of Labour voters unsatisfied with Jeremy Corbyn.
“I doubt 30 seats was what Theresa May would have hoped for but we’re still talking about a large majority,” he told The Sun.

“Labour were always going to close the gap and I do think some voters who would have backed the Greens and Lib Dems are moving a bit towards Jeremy Corbyn.
“But I think it’s too much to believe Labour is going to achieve a vote share of around 37 per cent. That would be up around a fifth or a quarter on Ed Miliband in 2015.”

I am also assuming a decline in the Labour vote more generally, partly due to an anti-Corbyn phenomenon
Ian Dale, Political Commentator
Political commentator and former Conservative politician Ian Dale predicted that Labour could lose an abysmal 69 seats on June 8.
He wrote on his website: “If there is no UKIP candidate in a Labour marginal, some very bizarre seats could end up going to the Conservatives – there may be one or two with five figures majorities which fall.
“I am also assuming a decline in the Labour vote more generally, partly due to an anti-Corbyn phenomenon in many areas, and also because the Lib Dems have become seen as the party of ‘Remain’."
